Tex-Mex Fiesta Casserole

Recipe by Doing it Right

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.
