I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an “add a little of this and that” person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements!

I'm really proud of myself for this one. I used to love getting Mexican Pizzas at Taco Bell. I haven't had one in years. So, I spent a few days concocting this recipe.
Tempeh is a fermented soybean cake, originating from Indonesia. You can find it at your health food store, if you can't find it at your regular grocery store. We aren't vegetarians, but sometimes it's nice to have a vegetarian meal. Helps save on the calories. Tempeh is a great meat substitute. If you chop it up right, it can have a similar consistency to ground meat.
Also, I'm pretty sure the tortillas Taco Bell uses for this are deep fried to make them crispy. I baked mine.Submitted by PISCESWOMAN87
Carly Rules...My coworker had an awesome recipe that I wanted to try...but of course had to change it up to lower the fat...since I gain 5 pounds just LOOKING at food...
These work out to be 1.5 WW point per shell or 3 points per serving (2 shells).Submitted by BONFIRE8171
I got this recipe from my sister and it has become a favourite dish for our family. It can be made with chicken or turkey - a GREAT recipe for leftovers.
I had some issues entering the ingredients, so I had to input 1 cup low fat cheddar cheese and 3 oz. low fat mozzarella cheese instead of 2 cups low fat marble cheese.
You can reduce the fat of this recipe by using low fat cream of chicken soup or no fat sour cream.
Enjoy!Submitted by CELESTIE4
My favorite dish at a local Mexican restaurant is their Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce. I had to try and find a way to lower the fat and sodium so I could enjoy these without the guilt! I tweaked that recipe a bit to lower the sodium and fat, and came up with a winner! My husband and teen daughter gobble these up!Submitted by BETHPROVERBS31
