This is one "healthy" recipe your whole family will love! Even my husband and sons, who aren't fond of "diet" food will tell me how good these are. Of course, they might have two or three, though!
These are full of flavor and I like to serve with black beans...
(feel free to change out the low-carb tortillas or sour cream to full fat if you'd rather)
