Recipe Details
  • 3 spray(s) cooking spray, divided
  • 2 clove(s) garlic clove(s), minced
  • 3/4 pound(s) uncooked 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 3/4 tsp table salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) canned diced tomatoes, with jalapenos or green chilies
  • 8 small corn tortilla(s), lightly toasted just before serving if desired*
  • 2 cup(s) lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 cup(s) low fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety
  • 1/3 cup(s) fat free salsa
  1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add beef; cook until browned, breaking up meat as it cooks, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add cumin, coriander, salt and diced tomatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost absorbed, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Place tortillas on a flat surface. Top each with about 1/4 cup beef, 1/4 cup lettuce, 1 tablespoon cheese and 2 teaspoons salsa. Fold tortillas in half and serve. Yields 2 tacos per serving.
*To toast tortillas, coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place tortillas on top and coat with cooking spray. Heat in a 300°F oven until slightly crisp but not too crisp that they break when folded.
