Recipe Notes

This recipe comes to 9 Smart Points per 1/2 cup serving. Recipe yields 8, 1/2 cups. 

Lean ground turkey or venison can be substituted for lean ground beef. Be sure to change calories and calculate points accordingly if using substitutions. 

Cajun seasoning is a little spicy so if you have young children who are sensitive to spice, mild taco seasoning can be substituted for the Cajun seasoning.
