  • 8 low-carb tortillas (6 inches in diameter)
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 cup fat-free refried beans
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup diced jalapeños (optional)
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the extra lean ground turkey or chicken until fully browned, breaking it apart with a spoon as it cooks.
  3. Once the meat is cooked through, sprinkle the reduced-sodium taco seasoning over it and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  4. Warm the low-carb tortillas according to package instructions. This will make them more pliable and easier to fold.
  5. Lay out the warmed tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread approximately 2 tablespoons of fat-free refried beans onto each tortilla, leaving a border around the edges.
  6. Spoon the cooked ground turkey or chicken onto one half of each tortilla, followed by a sprinkle of shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese.
  7. Top the meat and cheese with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, diced onions, and diced jalapeños, if using.
  8. Fold the empty half of each tortilla over the filling to create a half-moon shape, pressing down gently to seal the edges.
  9. Lightly coat both sides of each pocket taco with non-stick cooking spray to help them crisp up in the oven.
  10. Place the assembled pocket tacos on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy.
  11. Once baked, remove the pocket tacos from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy the savory satisfaction of our Loaded Cheesy Pocket Tacos, guilt-free and bursting with flavor. With their low SmartPoints value and irresistible taste, these tacos are sure to become a favorite in your meal rotation.
