First of all, let me say this dish is fabulous.

Now here's my question: How in the world do you figure out 1 cup of tortillas? That should be a measurement in weight, not volume like a cup. Does anyone know what they used for 1 cup of tortillas? The bag I used is 1 ounce per serving, I used 4 ounces for the dish to make 8 servings.

Second question is: Did anyone calculate this using the points plus calculator? I used regular sharp cheddar cheese, low fat sour cream instead of FF, and regular tortilla chips and I still came out with a points plus value of 5, not 7.

Just wondering if anyone did the math. Thanks.

Best points plus recipe to date, thanks! I say more onions, more salsa, less Taco sauce, but that may just be me :)
