Helpful Hints

1/4 cup Monterrey Jack cheese can be substituted for queso fresco. Add 1 tablespoon per taco.
Compare brands and buy the lowest sodium tortillas.
Amount of meat may be adjusted according to your diet. For a higher protein meal, increase to 1-1/2 pounds; for a lower protein meal, decrease to 1/2 pound or eat one taco instead of two.
