Today’s Sunday Supper is all about lean beef. I generally use lean ground beef because it is better for us, and I don’t have to drain it. This is one of those rare instances where my laziness actually has benefit. I love it when that happens!

Herdez is the brand of chile verde sauce I use in this recipe, it comes in a small (7 ounces) can that I buy at Walmart on the Mexican food aisle. If you can’t find it you could substitute any other green enchilada sauce or green salsa.

One of the things that makes this recipe “skinny” is the tortillas. I used Mama Lupe’s Low Carb tortillas, they have 60 calories and 7 grams of total carbohydrates. I buy the ones that are about 7 1/4″ across at the widest part.

A normal soft taco sized flour tortilla has around 130 calories and a whopping 23 grams of total carbohydrates. So the tortilla you use will have a huge impact on the calories and carbohydrates in this recipe.

The only 2% Milk Mexican cheese blend at my Walmart is Kraft. There are other brands available and I think Kroger has a generic brand.

I just mixed my sauce with a whisk and it had some little chunks of avocado in it. If you want your sauce to be smoother you can mix it in a blender or food processor.
