Bean & Cheese Enchiladas

IMG_0552 (2)

This is yet another hungry girl recipe that is super yummy!!  I have made it twice now!!  It is so easy to prepare and is very good!  If you are craving mexican food but don’t want to blow a bunch of points to eat it then this is the choice for you!! A serving of 2 enchiladas is 374 calories, 4 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber (that is 6 ww points!!)  You have to try these today!

I have altered the recipe to fix it for 4 servings (2 enchiladas per serving)

8 large corn tortillas (like Mission Super Size
4 slice fat-free cheddar cheese, cut in half
2 2/3 cup enchilada sauce
1 1/3 cup fat-free refried beans
1 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped onions 
4 tbsp. taco sauce
2 tsp. taco seasoning mix, dry
Optional toppings: fat-free sour cream, chopped scallions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook onions over medium heat until they begin to brown (about 2 minutes). In a small dish, combine the onions with the refried beans, taco sauce, and taco seasoning. Mix well. Spray a small baking dish with nonstick spray. Heat tortillas in the microwave until slightly warm. Lay the tortillas on a clean, dry surface, and then spread about 2 tbsp. of the enchilada sauce onto each one. Place one half of the cheese slice on each tortilla. Then, evenly distribute the bean mixture into the center of each tortilla. Wrap the tortillas up tightly, and place them in the baking dish seam side down. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes (until the enchiladas are hot). Remove dish from the oven, sprinkle shredded cheese over the enchiladas, and then return it to the oven for about 5 minutes (until the cheese is nice and melty). Plate those babies and, if you like, top with some of the optional ingredients. Enjoy!
