Chili Frito Burrito

Recipe From: Hungry Girl
1/3 cup low-fat turkey or veggie chili
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortilla (or alternative below)
2 tbsp. shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/2 package Fritos Original Corn Chips 100 Calorie Pack (or other alternative below!)
Optional: 2 tbsp. diced onion

Place chili in a microwave-safe bowl, cover, and heat for 45 - 60 seconds, until hot. Set aside.

Lay tortilla flat on a microwave-safe plate, and warm in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Spoon chili down the center of the tortilla. Cover the chili with cheese, and then top with Fritos. If you like, sprinkle with onion.

Wrap tortilla up like a burrito, folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom. (Or serve it wrap-style, with one end left open.) Place burrito seam-side down on the plate, and microwave for 30 seconds.

HG Alternative! If you can't locate those 80-calorie tortillas made by La Tortilla Factory, use any low-fat, high-fiber, burrito-size tortilla with about 110 calories. Then your burrito will have about 248 calories and a POINTS® value of 5*. Yippee!

(Another) HG Alternative! If you can't find 100-calorie packs of Fritos, you could just use 10 Fritos from a regular bag. But we don't trust ourselves around a giant bag of Fritos -- so we'd just use 50 calories' worth of crushed baked tortilla chips instead!


  1. So wow, I love your cooking blog even MORE, because HG is one of my ultime favorites! I just bought these Tortiallas and LOVE them and I think I might have some turkey chili so I might have to try this recipe soon :o).
