This casserole was delicious and spicy! We cut the cheese in half and used whole wheat torillas. We also used fat free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and still tasted delicious.

Everything about this screams bad for you. Calories are high for only one serving, fat grams are WAY too high and the sodium is out of control. I think I will pass.

This recipe sounds wonderful but I think the carbs are a little high for phase 1. More like phase 2 or 3. I would try using the low carb/high fiber tortilla shells. They taste just as good. I can't wait to make this for dinner!
