On Saturday morning David let me stay in bed and watch TV (I almost always watch Food Network if given the chance) while I enjoyed my coffee in peace.
Look at what the kids were doing:
Yep, making a giant mess and having a BLAST! They were so proud of their hiding place...
I was watching Rachael Ray and she was making a Mexican Lasagna. Hers was a little too high in fat for me and required too many dishes and too many individual ingredients, so I modified it and it was such a huge hit that my family was asking to eat the leftovers tonight for dinner! (My family usually whines when I serve leftovers!)
In skillet brown lean ground turkey, add 2 bell peppers and an onion chopped small (so the non-onion eating family members won't find it...) into pan to cook with meat. Season with cumin, coriander seed, onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste. When meat mixture is done, add in 2 cans of hominy and one can of whole kernel corn, drained. This is one of your layers.
In bowl, mix together 1/2 jar of your favorite Tomatillo Salsa with an equal amount of your favorite package of guacamole (you can make your own just use about 3 avocados). Set aside as this will be one of your layers.
Start layering with low carb flour tortillas (or corn tortillas).
Add layer of meat and corn mixture.
Add layer of guac and green salsa mixture.
Add thin layer of 2% Mexican blend cheese.
Repeat layering. Bake at 350 until cheese melts and it is hot through.
I served this with some pinto beans I cooked from dried and then "refried" (at my house that means I mashed them and added a little taco seasoning).
I think the next time I make this I will leave out the turkey meat and I will use a mixture of pinto beans and black beans. (Would be a good idea if you are eating meat-less on Fridays right now) I took a picture but it wasn't very pretty so I will spare you.
The best part was that everyone loved it!
What dinner do you make that everyone at your house loves?
