Weight Watchers Taco Casserole

This is a great taco casserole recipe the whole family will love.
I haven't made this yet but plan to this coming week. Hubby is one who goes on weight watchers and so good loses weight but starts to eat again. I am guilty of making wonderful dishes full of calories, so NOW I need to start remaking Weight Watcher dishes again, which are very yummy. My problem is I need to gain weight lol and I have to watch out for all this dairy , so I will be adjusting how much I put in which will make this even less points.
