While the WW recipe was good, I wanted to change it just a bit to suite my own preferences. Here's what I came up with.

These were excellant, made them for PAC fall 2008, supper tonight. Delicious and just the right amount of heat. I used whole wheat tortillas and ground lean turkey meat, didn't have any chilies in so used a jalepeno pepper to replace them, seemed to work fine. Loved the spices and herbs, very tastey. Also used light cheddar cheese because that was what I have in.Forgot to put the no fat sour cream out 'til the last minute, so it dosen't show in the photos. Enjoyed our supper very much, seved with a simple lettuce/tomamto/onion salad. Thanks for posting , I will make them again.
