Lower-Fat Beef Enchiladas

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
8 servings
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.
