How To Make

    To serve, top with chopped cilantro (optional for you cilantro haters), low-fat sour cream, or low-fat shredded cheese.

    To make this as healthy as possible, I suggest you use organic salsa, as it usually has half the sodium of the regular stuff. Also, make your own taco seasoning, because the stuff from the store has sugar in it. There are several taco seasoning recipes on Justapinch.
