Expert Tips

Though protein won't raise your blood glucose levels, it's still wise to eat only one serving per meal to control your total calorie intake.

Don't forget the rice and beans! Serve with 1/3 cup cooked rice and 1/2 cup Old El Paso® fat-free refried beans for a total of 4 1/2 Carbohydrate Choices.

If you prefer green enchilada sauce to the red variety, go ahead and use it instead.
