I think it looks more like 4 points per serving or 5 at the most.

1/2 Pound Lean Ground Beef = 8 points (divide by 4 servigns = 2 per serving)
2 garlic cloves = 0 points
2 Green Peppers = 0 points
8 Scallions, sliced = 0 points
2 Tomatoes Chopped = 0 points
2 Tablespoons Chili Powder = 0 points
1 Tablespoons Cumin = 0 points
teaspoon Ground Black Pepper = 0 points
2 Large Potatoes Thinly Sliced = 6 points (divide by 4 servings = 1.2 points)
3/4 Cups Nonfat Shredded Cheddar Cheese = 6 points approximately (divide by 4 servings = 1.2 points)

Ok I just ran it through my Mastercook and it comes out to:

for 4 servings:

248 Calories
5 fat grams
6 fiber grams

or 4 points

This is with 93% lean beef...it would be slightly less wtih 96% lean.
