These Skinny Mexican Street Tacos are quick, easy and insanely delicious! These Mexican Street Tacos are packed with flavorful ground beef, chopped onions, refried beans, and salsa con queso. Crisped to perfection-and topped with your favorite toppings with fresh limes!

What ingredients do I needed for Mexican Street Tacos?

  • Lean ground beef – I like to use 96% ground beef- you could also use ground turkey or chicken.
  • Garlic– FRESH is best-but you can also use bottled minced garlic. 
  • Onion-adds flavor.
  • Green chilies-adds flavor.
  • Spices– chili powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder, Kosher salt and pepper.
  • Tostitos salsa con queso– this makes the taco filling saucy and cheese.
  • Refried beans– adds flavor and thickens the filling.
  • Corn Tortillas – I use like to use white corn. The brands I love are Guerrero or Mission white corn tortillas. 

What can I top these Mexican Street Tacos with?

  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo 
  • Guacamole-I love using Trader Joe’s reduced guilt 
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Avocado, sliced 
  • Limes, sliced
  • Cheese, shredded
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • Fat Free Sour Cream or non fat plain Greek yogurt

Do I pre-cook the tortilla?

Yes, spray both sides of the corn tortillas with non stick cooking spray. Then cook corn tortillas in a non-stick skillet or on an electric griddle over medium-high heat for about 30 seconds per side or until a few golden brown spots appear.

Can these tacos be reheated?

Reheating these Skinny Street Tacos in then oven or air fryer is very easy, and takes only 10 to 15 minutes in the oven or 7-10 minutes in the air fryer. 

Just preheat your oven to 375 degrees and wrap the tacos tightly in aluminum foil and cook directly on your oven rack for 10-15 minutes. 

Can these Skinny Mexican Street Tacos be frozen?

Yes, these Skinny Mexican Street Tacos can be made in advance, wrapped in aluminum foil and stored in the refrigerator or freezer until you are ready to eat.  

Thaw the frozen tacos overnight in the refrigerator.  Make sure to freeze them before the condiments.

How do I make these Mexican Street Tacos?

Spray a large skillet or cast iron pan with non stick cooking spray. Cook ground beef over medium heat, until it’s no longer pink and drain any excessive fat or liquid.

Add onions and garlic and continue cooking until onions are translucent. 

Add seasonings, green chilies, refried beans and cheese dip.

Stir until well blended. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line two baking sheets with foil and spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. 

Heat a separate non-stick skillet or an electric griddle over medium heat.

Spray both sides of each tortilla with non stick cooking spray and cook each tortilla for about 30 seconds on each side. 

Repeat until all tortillas are light cooked. 

Spoon 2 Tbsp of taco filling into taco shells and stack them side by side onto prepared baking sheets

Spray the tops of the tacos with non stick cooking oil spray ( I use canola oil).

Bake for approximately 14-18 minutes or until the tortillas are lightly brown and edges are golden brown.

Do not use the WW nutritional calculator to calculate points. The nutritional calculator does take zero point food ingredients into consideration and will not be accurate.

Hi there! Looking forward to having these tacos! I tried to add them two ways to my WW (first using the nutritional info, then inputting the recipe ingredients (I used the same ones you did)) and both times, it calculated more than 2 points per taco for me on the Blue plan. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Katelyn

If you are calculating the point value using nutritional info it would not be accurate since this recipe contains quite a few zero point foods.

Here are the breakdown for the points for the BLUE plan: 1 lb. Lean Beef=10 points 1 cup Tostitos Cheese Dip=12 points 24. white corn tortillas=37 points

The rest of the ingredients are zero points on the blue plan-fat free refried beans, Green Chiles, seasonings.

Hope that helps!

How do you track these on the WW app? I cooked them tonight and they were amazing but I feel like I have eaten too much. Lol

Hi Nicole

Thanks for your comments! I am so happy you enjoyed them. As for tracking the recipes you can either use the quick add function in the ww app and enter the name of the recipe and the point value per serving and that will be saved under your foods for a later use- or you can add it by creating a recipe and entering in each ingredient that you used and the name and servings. That will be saved as well under my recipes for later use.

Hope that helps

Have a great day
