  • I used fat free cheese and sour cream and they were still good. They are easy to make and a good "fix ahead" lunch. - 1/9/09

  • The calories count is incorrect. Only one tortilla, one serving enchilda sauce and 1 cup is counted in the total. I think each burrito is closer to 400 calories. - 1/9/09

  • I'm going to try this recipe using Morning Star veggie crumbles, instead of ground beef and use low calorie flour tortillas. Maybe that will help reduce the calories. - 1/9/09

  • This sounds really good ! I'm new to Spark and to dieting, and this gives me hope 4 success without becoming discouraged by tasteless, non-filling food. Great idea for the refried beans substitute. Will try it this weekend Thanks ! - 1/9/09
