Beef Enchilada Pie---OLE!

Tonight we have Beef Enchilada Pie. It was very yummy and for only 6 points a serving it was very tasty!  It was very simple to make especially since my helpful husband cooked the meat while I was working out. The smell of wonderful food helps me work out faster and pushes me to do my best!  Here are the details:


1 spray(s) cooking spray   

1 pound of lean beef   

1 medium onion(s), chopped   

1 tsp chili powder   

3 Tbsp all-purpose flour   

1 cup(s) fat-free skim milk   

4 oz canned jalapeٌo peppers, drained and chopped   

1/2 tsp Durkee Ground Cumin Seed, or other brand   

3 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)   

3 cup(s) tomato(es), chopped   

10 Tbsp low-fat shredded cheddar cheese  


    Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Place meat, onion and chili powder in skillet and cook until meat is browned, stirring occasionally to break up meat, about 8 minutes. Remove meat mixture from skillet and set aside.

            Place skillet over medium-high heat and add flour.

 Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium; simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.

            Remove skillet from heat; stir in meat mixture, jalapenos and cumin.

Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on HIGH until softened, about 15 seconds. Place 1 tortilla in bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Spread 1/3 of turkey mixture over tortilla. Spoon 1 cup of tomato on top and sprinkle with 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of cheese. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients ending up with 2 tablespoons of cheese.

Cover pie plate with aluminum foil and cook until cheese melts and filling is warmed through, about 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, 2 minutes before cutting into 6 wedges- 1 wedge per serving.

PP Value: 6 per serving!

**We made modifications due to the fact that our pie pan was not deep enough so we used 4 tortillas and made it in 2 separate dishes with only 1 layer and increased the serving size to 8.  This made the PP 5 per serving! I also added a 1/2 cup of FF refried beans on the side for 2 PP and a 1/2 tbsp of FF Sour Cream!** 

It was VERY GOOD AND FILLING AND ONLY 7 points for dinner!!!

Happy Eating!
