WW SmartPoints are based on the blue plan and are calculated in the app
These 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.
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.
