    AndreaVT96's Note:

    Since starting Weight Watchers, I've been experimenting with how to make some of my favorite dishes lower in fat and calories. If I've figured correctly (using 93% lean ground beef and part-skim cheese), these enchiladas should have about 7-8 points each. (The nutritional information that RecipeZaar provides does not always coincide with actual package nutritional information, so please use your own judgement.) My non-Weight watching husband enjoyed them as well. Feel free to add more sauce if you like more of that, as well as add the jalapeno with a few seeds, if you like a hotter enchilada.

      Excellent dish!!! Both DH and I really enjoyed the flavor of these enchilads. We also were surprised to find that they only had 7 points. I was going to half the recipe, but thought that this would make great leftovers. We had it for dinner last night and for lunch today. I still have 2 more serving and I can't wait!! Thanks AndreaVT96 for posting.
