Tips and tricks for making this recipe

  1. Cook the meat, peppers, and onions, and freeze it as a meal prep for busy nights. It’s an easy way to stay on your plan or routine. Just reheat the frozen meat and veggies in the pan and continue as instructed below.
  2. Slice the Flatout flatbread ahead of time.
  3. Follow the directions closely and remember to drain your ground beef.

Variations and substitutions 

  1. Use other meats – You can use a few different kinds of meat in this dish, but I prefer beef. These work best, but just about anything can work:
              • Turkey
              • Chicken
              • Fish
  2. Variety of cheeses – Blended cheeses are delicious in this dish, but if you don’t have a taco blend in the fridge, grab whatever you have on hand. Cheddar adds a lot of flavor to these, and spicy jack cheese can kick it up to next level of deliciousness.
  3. Use fresh herbs – Fresh cilantro and Oregano add a fantastic flavor that people will remember.

How to make Flatout Weight Watchers friendly taco pockets (step-by-step instructions)

  1. Cook and drain your ground beef in a pan on the stove over medium heat. Add in diced peppers & onions with the taco seasoning, plus a few tablespoons of water, and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F, and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Cut your Flatout wraps in half using a pizza cutter.
  4. In a small bowl, mix your flour and water to form a thick paste, adding more water if too thick.
  5. As shown in the photos, put a small amount of flour paste at the top of your half wrap, but only halfway across. Fold them over to form a cone shape, and the flour paste will seal them.
  6. Add a few spoonfuls of taco beef mixture, about 1/4 cup. Don’t overfill, then add a tiny sprinkle of cheese, leaving enough room to seal them.
  7. Place some more flour paste on the top piece of your wrap and seal it closed, forming a triangle shape. Repeat with all 12 pieces.
  8. Place on the baking sheet and spray pockets with some cooking spray on one side.
  9. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes
  10. Serve fresh from the oven with sour cream and salsa for dipping.
  11. Makes 12 pockets at 2 smart points each on all 3 MyWW programs (3 points plus)

    I hate to do the I tried these bit changed the recipe….etc. 🙂 But instead of using flour paste I used taco sauce with a pastry brush. They stick together just fine. Other than that, we love these.

  6. I made these last night for dinner and I will for sure be adding this to the dinner rotation! They were delicious! I paired them with Santa Fe Blend veggies and dipped them in salsa and plain Greek yogurt!
