Makeover Mexican Roll-Ups Recipe

Publisher Photo
It's surprising what a quick substitution or two will do. By simply switching from full-fat products to reduced- or low-fat, you can often save lots of fat and calories while keeping flavor and texture. This is certainly the case with Leigh Thomas' Makeover Mexican Roll-Ups. The cook from Hahira, Georgia uses fat-free cream cheese and reduced-fat sour cream; this cuts nearly 70% of the fat and a whopping 75% of the cholesterol.
