  Fiesta-Time Chicken Flautas


PER SERVING (1/2 of recipe, 2 flautas): 188 calories, 2g fat, 556mg sodium, 24.5g carbs, 3g fiber, 4g sugars, 17g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

With flavor like this, who needs a fryer? These zesty chicken rollups RULE!





Ingredients:
1/4 cup picante sauce (like the kind by Pace)
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
3 oz. cooked and finely chopped skinless lean chicken breast
3 tbsp. diced onion
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. salt
Four 6-inch yellow corn tortillas
2 tsp. chopped cilantro

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine picante sauce with cheese and mix well. In another bowl, combine chicken, diced onion, and seasonings; mix well. Set both bowls aside.

Dampen two paper towels, and place tortillas between them. Microwave for about 1 minute, until tortillas are warm and pliable. Set aside.

Place one tortilla flat on a clean dry surface (keep the rest between the paper towels), and spread 1/4th of the saucy cheese mixture (about 1 tbsp.) onto the bottom third of the tortilla. Top with 1/4th of the chicken mixture (about 3 tbsp.). Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. cilantro. Tightly roll tortilla up from the bottom around the filling. Repeat with remaining tortillas, cheese mixture, chicken mixture, and cilantro, for a total of 4 flautas.

Carefully transfer flautas to the baking sheet, seam side down. Spray the tops with nonstick spray. Bake in the oven until tortilla edges are lightly browned and crispy, 15 - 20 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

HG Alternative! Can't locate picante sauce? Just use a smooth, spicy salsa instead! 

 
  Reuben-esque Cabbage Wraps

PER SERVING (1/4th of recipe, 1 wrap): 160 calories, 6.5g fat, 937mg sodium, 9.5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 5g sugars, 17g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Classic sandwich flavors in a super-low-calorie package -- can you afford NOT to try it? BTW, if you don't see packaged turkey pastrami, check the deli counter...



Ingredients:
1 head green cabbage (you won't use it all!), carefully cored with a knife
4 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
1/4 cup fat-free Thousand Island dressing
1/2 cup sauerkraut
8 oz. sliced turkey pastrami (about 24 slices)

Directions:
Place the head of cabbage in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for about 4 minutes, until the outer leaves begin to loosen.

Once cool enough to handle, remove cabbage from the bowl. Gently remove 4 whole outer leaves from the cabbage, and place them back in the bowl. (Reserve the rest of the cabbage for another use.)

Add 2 tbsp. water to the bowl with the cabbage leaves. Cover and microwave for about 2 minutes, until leaves are very soft.

Lay 2 softened cabbage leaves side by side on a clean dry surface. Place a cheese slice in the center of each leaf.

Evenly top each cheese slice with 1 tbsp. dressing, followed by 2 tbsp. sauerkraut and 2 oz. pastrami (about 6 slices).

Wrap each cabbage leaf up burrito-style, folding the sides in first and then rolling the cabbage up from the bottom around the filling. Place seam-side down to serve. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, for a total of 4 wraps.

If you like, microwave cabbage wraps for 1 minute, or until hot. Slice in half (or not) and enjoy!

MAKES 4 SERVINGS

HG Alternative! Not into nuking? Instead of microwaving the cabbage, just place the entire head in a pot of boiling water, and boil until the outer leaves loosen and completely soften. Tada!
