Taco Bell Bean Burrito for Under 200 Calories

Remember when I said I like to take an item and try to make in lower in calories, well this is by far my favorite.

Who doesn't love Taco Bell? And honestly that is the one fast food restaurant that you really can get a filling meal and watch your calories, but more on that another time.

So today being Friday and a no meat day I decided today calls for a bean burrito and as always my boys love them too.

I used La Tortilla Factory's Smart & Delicious 100 calorie tortillas, if you haven't tried these you are missing out. We use them all the time especially for wraps.

I will only use Rosarita fat free refried beans mainly because the taste is better than generic, but also because they are lower in calories than most. To the beans I diced up some white onion and heated them up. I used 1/4 cup of the beans for just 50 calories. I then topped them with 1/2 oz. of reduced fat shredded cheddar and two taco bell mild sauce packets.

Grand total for this = 194 calories!
That is a savings of 176 calories, almost HALF the calories of the original and just as yummy! I often add a verde sauce packet too just for a little more zing. Happy Friday!
