  • The ground beef we’re using is lean, 93%, if you have access to lower fat beef that will help cut back some points.
  • The corn tortillas put in a lot of points. If you have a lower point alternative that you like, feel free to swap them in here!
  • Use the non-fat yogurt to cut out the points for the low fat version on some plans.

The fresh ingredients you’ll need are ground beef, cilantro, limes, plain low-fat yogurt, reduced fat Mexican shredded cheese blend, jalapeño peppers, garlic cloves, onions, and corn tortillas!

How to make healthy beef enchiladas:

First we need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prep a baking dish with nonstick spray as well!

To make the sauce for these delish beef enchiladas we’ll combine the tomatoes, broth and allow to come to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes.

Next, take one of the tortillas and tear it up into small pieces, mix it into the broth mixture and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Once it’s cooled a bit, use a blender or immersion blender to puree the sauce mixture with 1/3 cup of the onions, cilantro leaves and stems, and half of the garlic.

After the mixture is blended it can go back into the sauce pan and simmer for 8-10 minutes until reduced to about 2 1/2 cups. Add about 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste) and then it’s ready to go!

To prepare the filling for the enchiladas we’ll need a skillet. Spray it with nonstick spray if necessary and use medium high heat to cook the beef, remaining onion, jalapeño if you’d like, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Cook everything until the beef is browned.

Add the garlic to the pan as well as the cumin, cook and stir for about a minute until fragrant.

Warm the last 6 tortillas and then we can start filling them for the baking dish! Put 3/4 cup of sauce on the bottom of the prepped baking dish. Put 1/3 cup filling into each tortilla and roll it up, place it into the baking dish seam side down.

Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the Weight Watchers beef enchiladas and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top.

Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes. 1 Serving is 1 enchilada, serve with a dollop of yogurt and a squeeze of lime if you’d like! You can mix the yogurt with some lime zest before placing on top the enchiladas!
