Well, a lot would depend on: how lean was the beef and how much, how much cheese, and were the beans fat free or full fat?
Recipe Calculator
A lot of times what I do is open a recipe calculator (link above) in a separate window, figure my recipe, and then use those numbers to create a custom FitDay food. I usually also add the size (1 taco, 1 cup, 1/8 pan etc) since you can only save a custom food as one serving.

I used the information from FITDAY for a 'Fast Food Taco or Tostada, with beef & cheese' that is about 220 calories, add an ounce of Refried Beans for another 41 calories and your Tacos were about 260 calories each. 260 X 4 = 1040 calories. Probably more calories than you wanted to hear.
