Lower-Fat Beef Enchiladas

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by AndreaVT96

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.
