I added some browned turkey and chipotle sauce to give the filling a little more flavor for my husband. They were yummy!

These are great, and you can add just about anything you want to them. Personally, I like to add some black beans, onions, and mushrooms. Yum!

If I am remembering correctly off the top of my head, rice is 4 points per cup and 1/2 tbsp of oil is 1 1/2 points , so if you round up it is 6 points per serving. 5 if you want to hide the 1/2 point.

that recipe can't be 6 points. You dont count the zero point veggies. They are "free" in unlimited quantities (not all veggies..just the zero point ones and all of the above are) You only count per serving 1 c. brown rice and 1/2 T. olive oil.
