    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Some time ago there was a post in the Tex-Mex/Mexican Food Forum asking if it was possible to find reduced fat recipes. This recipe is proof positive that it can be done. I have not tried this yet but will soon.

      Great! Only change I made was to use fresh baby spinach rather than frozen, and regular tomato sauce rather than reduced sodium. Very yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I love this - you have to be careful to make enough tomato sauce to cover the dish but it turns out splendidly and even my anti-veggie male family members love it.
