Makeover - How We Did It
This delicious made-over version of beef enchiladas can save you 190 calories and 18g of fat, including 6g of sat fat, per serving. These savings are the result of using extra-lean beef and decreasing the amount, adding peppers, and using KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
Corn tortillas are typically fried in oil to prevent cracking, but in this healthful version the tortillas are warmed in the microwave before using to minimize cracking.
Not only can these delicious low-calorie enchiladas help you and your family eat right, but they're also both a good source of calcium from the cheese and rich in vitamin C from the colorful peppers.
