Mission Tortilla
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mission Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

Sometimes the best meals are the simplest.  Mission Foods recently sent us some tortillas and a challenge to cook a meal for a large group for under $10.  This became even more challenging adding in our new healthy eating diets.  When I think of tortillas my brain instantly goes to melted cheese and sour cream.  So I tried to rethink a fajita and make it as healthy as possible.

My plan:

  1. Load up on the peppers and onions!  These are zero points for us weight watcher folks (super healthy for everyone else).
  2. Don’t use Olive Oil from a bottle, but instead Olive Oil or Vegetable oil spray.  You will use a lot less and thereby not add a ton of fat and calories.
  3. Grab Fat Free Sour Cream and Cheese made with 2% milk.
  4. Most Salsas are also zero points (super healthy) but we went another step with black bean salsa to add some more fiber and protein.
  5. Skip the chips or rice, just add steamed green beans or another vegetable on the side.


1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breast
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of Chili pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste

1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1  onion
1 second spray of Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Mission Tortillas
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese, 2% milk,

First put the meat, honey and chili pepper together.  Then throw it all in one big pan. 
7 minutes later dinner is ready!

The grand total for this meal: $6.64 and it made enough to serve 5 people easy.
Total points for the meal = 5
