This taco filling is a healthier alternative to the meat version. I found this recipe on a “runners” message board where the posters were raving how much this tasted as good as a meat filling. I actually like it better than the fillings made with ground beef. It tastes great in taco shells on taco salads and anywhere you’d normally use a meat taco filling.
