Way too much fat. Made some changes and it turned out great. Submitted by:

These sound delicious, but I agree...too many calories, fat and sat. fat for just one serving. By using cooking spray instead of olive oil, fat free cheese & whole wheat tortillas, it cuts the calories down to 295.4, the fat down to 3.5g and the sat. fat down to .7g per serving. Much healthier!! Submitted by:

make sure you can find La Tortilla brand tortillas - much less in calories, carbs and much more in fiber.

Sounds like a good lower fat version, however I was surprised at the calorie content. The Chili's version is only around 900 for the entire plate full, and these are almost 400 calories each? Submitted by:

Love it!!! This is a great lower fat version of the original. Also goes great with a reduced fat yogurt-cucumber sauce. Thanks for the recipe!!! Submitted by:
