The original recipe as written definitely has a high fat and calorie content, but being both more health conscious AND a lover of Mexican/New Mexican food, I used it as a starting point and tweaked it to our dietary needs. First, I used only 1 medium sized Yukon Gold potato (they are the lowest in carbs), and used egg substitute to cut fat and cholesterol. I use either veggie chorizo or ground chicken chorizo, depending on what's available, which is similar in flavor and texture, but is so much lower in fat and calories. I skipped the cream cheese, because we don't care for the texture and substitute monterey jack or queso fresco. Finally, I use "fajita size" tortillas, in place of burrito sized, because we just don't want that large of a meal. I admit, it's not the original recipe I've described, but, it's quite tasty with the replacements, and I don't feel guilty about about enjoying one of these!
