Beef & Green Chile Enchiladas

Tonia Bloom
These are quick weeknight enchiladas that are made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. We replaced the typical shredded cheese found in most enchiladas with a canned cheese soup. I know that doesn't sound right, but if you buy the "Healthy Request" soup it does not have any saturated fat. Choosing a Low-Carb, High Fiber tortilla will boost the fiber in each serving and won't increase sodium.
