For these Low Point Hearty Beef Enchiladas you’ll need:

2 packages of the Mission White, Super Size Corn Tortillas

1 ( 16 oz. ) can of fat free refried beans

1 (20 oz.) can red enchilada sauce

1 ( 4oz.) can diced olives

1 (4 oz.) can green chiles

1 pound ground lean beef or turkey

1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheese ( I use Trader Joe’s lite 3 cheese blend)

1/2 Tbsp. taco seasoning ( I use Dak’s salt free Taco Knight )

 

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a large skillet pan with non stick cooking spray. Cook ground beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
  3. Add taco seasoning and 2 tsp of water and reduce heat to low for 60 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine, refried beans, green chiles and cooked ground beef. Stir until well combined.
  5. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish or two 8 x 8 baking dishes with non stick cooking spray. 
  6. If you prefer the tortilla crispy, then you will want to first cook tortillas in a skillet, sprayed with non stick cooking spray for 1-2 over medium heat on each side.
  7. Then top each tortilla with 1/4 cup of beef mixture. Roll up and place seam down in prepared baking dish.
  8. If you use two (8 x 8) baking dishes-you will add 7 enchiladas per dish.
  9. Repeat for all 14 tortillas. 
  10. Pour enchilada sauce evenly over enchiladas. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top of sauce.Add diced olives.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly.

  BLUE: 4 SmartPoints per enchilada or 3 SmartPoints per enchilada if using ole wellness tortillas

PURPLE: 4 SmartPoints per enchilada or 3 SmartPoints per enchilada if using ole wellness tortillas 

Notes:

  • You may substitute the 96% lean ground beef for 99% ground turkey or skinless, boneless, cooked chicken breast if you are following the WW blue or purple plan-that substitution would make the point value 3 SmartPoints per enchilada if using the mission super size tortillas.

I'm curious, do you use regular (taco size) or super size tortillas for this? The ingredients list doesn't specify so I got the smaller ones but I see in your picture the super size ones. I used the small ones so now I'm not sure what the point value would be per enchilada.

Hi Krista,

Yes, I use the mission super size white corn tortillas. The point value for 1 is 4 points for either tortilla sizes-4 points per enchilada-however for the white corn mission regular size you can have 2 for 7 points where was the mission super size point value for 2 enchiladas is 8 points. I’ll add that in the note section of the recipe to clear up any confusion. Thanks so much!
