The Review:
YUM!!!!!  I know my reviews all are starting to sound the same, but really, what else I can I say?  The food tastes great, it was good the next night as leftover, both kids ate it, husband devoured his.... seriously, that's how you know if it's a good recipe or not!

Tip: Use fat free crescent rolls, ground turkey instead of beef, fat free sour cream, baked tortilla chips, and low fat cheese with taco seasoning mixed into it. This will cut a lot of those calories and you won't even taste a difference! Looks tasty, none the less :o)

I agree with Shannon. There are lots of ways to cut out fat/calories and it still tastes really good. The sodium was killing me on the nutritional info. I even buy low-sodium taco seasoning packets now...every bit helps. This sounds like something my kiddos would love!
