This WW recipe is from Weight Watchers 365 Day Cookbook (an older WW book when they still had exchanges - but to use the flex plan I think it is about 6 points).

We enjoyed this, something different! Another time, I will follow reviewers suggestions and add some sour cream and olives, and maybe some guacamole on the side, but this was good as was! A light supper but more than plenty. Thank you ellie! Made for Veggie Swap#14
We had to up the size a little since our individual dishes are huge. I did cheat a little and added corn and black beans for bulk. This was very good. DH immed said he wanted me to make this again! I covered the whole thing with a second tortilla to kind of "pie" it, but I think I will leave it off next time.
When I selected this recipe to try, I really wasn't sure how it would come out - I enjoy Mexican scrambled eggs, but I have to say, this surprised me with just how good it was!! I scaled it for one serving, which was quite easy. I had to make a couple substitutions due to what I had on hand: flour tortillas instead of corn, and I trimmed the tortilla to fit the casserole dish. I used a Mexican blend cheese. The egg mixture I made exactly as described. I did add some shredded chicken to the tomato sauce. I used green onions instead of white, and I couldn't help myself - I added a dollop of low-fat sour cream and a few black olives on top. This would be great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and I look forward to impressing company with it in the near future! Thanks!
