    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!! - 3/6/09

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