I don't know how this got on the light menu either, it is 26 Weight Watchers points per serving! Not light in my category! Sorry

I agree with grandma 832, how in the world is this healthy, look at the calories and sodium, holy cow.

How can you list this under "healthy" when it has MORE sodium p/serving than most people should eat in a day ! Sodium should be 1500mg or less P/DAY. Things can be delicious without salt - - it's just a habit we've acquired and really need to be more aware of.

I was disappointed with this recipe. I thought it was very bland and boring, something Mexican food never is. I will not be keeping this recipe.

just don't bake them for the 40 minutes as described cook for about 15 to 20 minutes depending on your oven but other than that they are good
