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!
