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. ;)
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 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!
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.
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.
A phenomenal amount of flavor and healthy to boot! Ease up on (or omit entirely) the jalapeno and cayenne if you're a lightweight like me. In fact, I just use one 4-oz can of mild diced green chilies instead.
Squash with a bit of a Tex-Mex twist. I served this as something different to side with tacos and just used what I had on hand: a zucchini and a yellow summer squash, hot and spicy chipotle salsa, and a colby-monterey jack blend. This was adapted from a reader-submitted (Desiree Zamorano) recipe in Bon Appetit.
I was trying to think of ways to make my OAMC recipes for crock pot use...you know they sell those crock pot box recipes at the grocery now. This is one of the ones I found that work and is simple. There may still be some fiddling but it's pretty good as is. Hope you will give it a try.
Living in Texas, my family loves Tex-Mex and Mexican food. I always seem to have a hard time finding a rice recipe that my whole family can agree on. I came up with this recipe on my own and everyone seems to like it.
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. ;)
