No Fuss Tex Mex Roll Ups

This week's dinners has been taken from the Kraft Foods Website. They have a wonderful feature under the "Dinner" tab called "1 bag, 5 dinners." This is EXACTLY what I need--preplanned dinners for Monday-Friday. Okay, so Friday is always "pizza night" at Kraft Foods, but you can always substitute other meals. Enough chit chat, here's the recipe:

1/4 c. Italian Dressing (substitute a "lite" kind for fewer points--I had to use what I had on hand)
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 c. salsa
2 c. chopped red peppers (about 2 peppers)
8 medium flour tortillas (6-inch)
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 c. light sour cream
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (use Fat Free for lower points values)

Brown meat and drain. Add peppers and chili powder. Cook over medium-high heat until peppers are tender crisp. Remove from heat.

Stir in sour cream and 1/4 c. of shredded cheese. Spoon about 1/3 of mixture onto tortillas. Wrap up and place in a 13x9 inch casserole dish. Drizzle with Italian dressing. Top with salsa and shredded cheese.

Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat source for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Makes 8 tortillas
2 tortillas per serving

*To cut calories and points value, I just had one tex mex roll up (5 points)
