My whole family loved it. I used rotel tomatoes with green chilis and salt. We used it on taco salads. Delicious!! The problem is the recipes says 20 servings and for Ideal protein it's really 6 servings.

My family loves this, and we have had it several times and even passed it on to friends who also loved it. We serve ours with yellow rice mixed with black beans and corn with cumin and lime juice.
My hubby and daughter loved it, I thought it was okay. Just a matter of taste buds. I served it with FF refried beans topped with FF mozerella cheese and FF sour cream.

Made it into a naked burrito and I would have thought it was Qdoba had I been blindfolded!

Very yummy, and make a ton of food! I loved how the meat fell apart, and the flavor was great. I didn't really know what to put with it, so I just ended up eating it with some FF refried beans and FF sour cream. One day I even made and open face sandwich with it. Was unclear on what 1 serving size is.

Wonderful! everyone just raved about it. Made Carnita Tacos with corn tortillas, lettuce, tomato, green onion, sour cream and cheese. 2 tacos, only 251 calories.

This turned out great, tender and was super easy! I added a little bit of salsa and some anaheim peppers to the crock-pot. I ate mine with a whole wheat tortilla taco style minus the cheese and it was delicious and low calories/fat!
