Healthy Beef and Cheese Enchiladas
These Healthy Beef and Cheese Enchiladas are a favorite in our home. While they are not traditional enchiladas, they are easy and delicious! The ultimate comfort food made healthier. You will want this low carb and WW friendly recipe on your menu for sure.
Eating healthier doesn’t mean that you have to avoid your favorite foods. You can still enjoy some of your favorite dishes just by making a few simple substitutions. In this recipe, we use low carb tortillas (which happen to have lots of fiber!), reduced fat cheese and good quality ground beef.
I also love to give a huge flavor boost by adding toppings like my Pico de Gallo! It is so fresh and really takes the taste to the next level. Making my own Taco Seasoning also helps me control what goes into this dish. Many store bought ones add unnecessary ingredients. I do love Primal Palate taco seasoning in a pinch though!
These healthy enchiladas are 7 WW SmartPoints per serving (blue plan), but you can substitute ground turkey or ground chicken to make them 5 points per serving. Your SmartPoints value can also change depending on what tortillas you use. I use the Mission Carb Balance ones.
You can make this recipe gluten free by using gluten free flour tortillas or even Siete grain free tortillas, but that will change the nutrition facts and points value.
