I rated this poorly because the nutrition info was WAY off. 2 Small corn tortillas can vary from 80 calories to 120 ... Most I checked did have 2 grams of fiber... No way this recipes has 17 grams of protein. My highest calculation was 15 using a very high protein cheese ... more realistic would be 13 grams of protein.

The salsa is the healthiest ingredient in this recipe why limit it to 1 tablespoon?

Your recipes look interesting but I really do not feel like taking the time to double check all your calculation... If you are going to offer this type of service.... DO it right... or not at all.

More like 230 calories or more, with the dinky 60 calorie corn tortillas. Use the small 50 calorie low carb tortillas (2), and it comes in at about 210.

What kind of Tortillas are used? I cant find any that are under 75 calories for 1, and that amounts to half the recipe alone.

I use fat free flour

I use fat free flour tortillas and add two tablespoons fat free refried beans. Try it, I believe you will like it.
