HG's Lean Bean Cheesy Enchiladas
HG's Lean Bean Cheesy Enchiladas

Whole 'Lada Love
Wanna stuff your face with a saucy smothered bean 'n cheese enchilada without a gazillion irritating calories and fat grams? Just whip up a batch of these Lean Bean Cheesy Enchiladas PRONTO!

Ingredients:
2 large corn tortillas (like Mission Super Size)
1 slice fat-free cheddar cheese, cut in half
2/3 cup enchilada sauce
1/3 cup fat-free refried beans
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 tbsp. taco sauce
1/2 tsp. taco seasoning mix, dry
Optional toppings: fat-free sour cream, chopped scallions

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook onions over medium heat until they begin to brown (about 2 minutes). In a small dish, combine the onions with the refried beans, taco sauce, and taco seasoning. Mix well. Spray a small baking dish with nonstick spray. Heat tortillas in the microwave until slightly warm. Lay the tortillas on a clean, dry surface, and then spread about 2 tbsp. of the enchilada sauce onto each one. Place one half of the cheese slice on each tortilla. Then, evenly distribute the bean mixture into the center of each tortilla. Wrap the tortillas up tightly, and place them in the baking dish seam side down. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes (until the enchiladas are hot). Remove dish from the oven, sprinkle shredded cheese over the enchiladas, and then return it to the oven for about 5 minutes (until the cheese is nice and melty). Plate those babies and, if you like, top with some of the optional ingredients. Enjoy! MAKES 2 SERVINGS

Whole 'Lada FAT!
Enchiladas are like skinny burritos, bathing in cheesy, saucy goo (which sounds AWESOME to us!). We LOVE them! But oily corn tortillas that are exploding with fatty cheese and refried beans, drowned in sauce, and covered with even MORE cheese are not exactly diet-friendly. And since restaurants typically serve up ginormous double headers of these things with mounds of rice and MORE beans on the side, an order can easily exceed 1,000 calories and insanely depressing amounts of fat. Even worse is the fact that while you can GUESS how many calories are in that order, you may never know for sure. We say play it safe and cook up some enchiladas in your own kitchen -- you'll save yourself oodles of calories and fat grams. HG's version is as easy as it is cheesy (and that’s a pretty ROCKIN’ combination).
