Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 211 Calories; 1g Fat (3.9% calories from fat); 13g Protein; 39g Carbohydrate; 10g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 249mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 1/2 Grain(Starch); 1/2 Lean Meat; 1/2 Vegetable.

 

NOTES : Having lived for years in my husband's home state of Texas, there is no other salsa or picante sauce than PACE!

 

I usually decide to cook them the morning I want them so I just put them in the crockpot, cover them with at least 1" of water and cook them all day. They turn out just as good as soaking overnight.

NOTES : I cook and drain the ground beef before I put it in the crockpot. It isn't necessary if you use extra lean beef but I have issues with fat.

 

As is the recipe is 7 points per serving but the servings are HUGE! If you changed it to 8 servings it would be only 5 points. Depends on how hungry you are!
