During Easter family egg-stravaganza time, my cousin Warren and I engaged in a brief discussion about corn tortillas. My opinion: they're great; his opinion: no thanks.
I feel like lots of people share Warren's hesitancy towards the corn tortilla. Yes they can be a little bland and tend to tear easily but for 2 for 2 points plus? I'll deal with a little tearing.
Warren, if you're out there, you should try this meal. It might make you change your mind about a few things. It uses corn tortillas and ground beef and is all kinds of melty, amazing goodness.
By melty, amazing goodness I don't mean healthy. Not at all. Aside from the calcium in the cheese, this meal probably has no real nutritional value. But sometimes, that's just how I roll. I did bring a salad to eat with it for lunch today, so at least i'll get something green.
Cheesy Enchilada Bake
adapted from Danica's Daily
1 lb ground beef (I used 93/7 as that's all my store had. However, turkey would be great and would maybe even bring the points down some)
1/2 onion, chopped
8 corn tortillas, cut up into squares
19 oz enchilada sauce
7 oz 2% shredded cheddar cheese
Spray a large pot with cooking spray. Add onions and ground beef, cook until done. Add the tortillas, half of the cheese, and the enchilada sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for about five minutes. Add the remaining cheese, cover pot and remove from heat. Allow to sit for a few minutes while the cheese melts
Serving size 1 cup (makes about 6 servings)
Points plus 7
Have a Cozy Weekend.
