I love to experiment with Mexican and Italian dishes. This is a recipe that a friend gave me that I tweaked to my family's liking. Instead of frying the tortillas, these are dipped in Chicken Broth. ;) You'll never miss the oil and the enchiladas are moist and flavorful. ;)
I was going to make chicken enchiladas and realized I didn't have tortillas so I switched it up a bit and came up with a Mexican Lasagna instead. It's a big hit and always requested in my house. I was honored to have it Published in SeptOct Issue of Taste of Home Simple & Delicious...pg 56!
A friend of mine made something similar to this a few years back for breakfast. It was so good I had to have the recipe. This is definitely one of my savory favorites. Thanks Linda for sharing your recipe.
I used to love these when I was younger, I could eat two in one sitting! I haven't had fast food in a year or two, but these taste like I remember Taco Bell's quesadillas tasting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
So far this is my favorite recipe that I use. It is from Joanna Lund. I make this at least once a month. It has a great taste and the portion size is plentiful. Per serving is 260 calories. The diabetic exchanges per serving are: 2 1/2 protein, 2 vegetable, 1 starch. You won't be sorry for trying it. My 3 year old son eats it too. You won't miss the fat/calories.
These are pretty easy, tasty and are a great appetizer or snack before the football games start, or you could even add beans/rice and Margaritas for a meal! For a more South-of-the-Border taste, add some diced Jalapeno peppers or green chilies before frying these. ;)
Having grown up with these, I didn't realize that most folks have never heard of a wet burrito. It is a meat and bean (or all meat or all bean) burrito with a spicy gravy and cheese on top. They are available here in many restaurants, and no self respecting bar would be without one on the menu, lol! Once you try them, you'll never go back to "dry" burritos again! Don't let the long list of directions scare you, these are easy!
Crisp flautas are usually fried and full of fat. This recipe offers a grilled and reduced fat version. Serve wtih pico de gallo and non-fat sour cream, unless you don't give a hoot and have major oink tendencies like myself, in which case, go hog wild and use full-fat stuff.
This recipe comes from a community cookbook in my area. For Busy Cooks by the Lower Valley Hospice. Sylvia Richards sent in this recipe to be in the cookbook. It is a very simple and quick recipe, and it goes great with almost anything.
this is spectacular. i have made it twice for 2 different groups of people and everyone has loved it. each serving(not including any additional toppings) is less than 100 calories. the polenta can be made ahead and refrigerated to save time.
