  • This is a keeper, and I'm not one who even orders Enchiladas out. I thought I'd make it for my husband. We both loved them, he could not believe that it was diet food. But he did say that it was worth making again. This will be added to our Healthy eating plan. Great way to eat your beans! - 8/20/08

  • Totally AWESOME!! Made it for lunch, family really loved it too. I have been looking for a low calorie without giving up taste, this is it. Instead of using canned sauce, I made Granny's Enchilada sauce instead for even fewer calories. I also added my own salsa and onions. Variations are endless! - 8/16/08
