An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

This is a yummy mexican inspired dish, I love that the salad is served with salsa, sour cream & guacamole instead of boring old salad dressing. Nice & Low Calories for those Calorie Counters out there!

I really wanted taco salad so I decided to try a chicken version. Decent on calories and good on protein. You can add beans to increase protien but will need to re-calculate for fat and calories

This recipe came from the chicken enchilada recipe I submitted earlier. I didn't need to make that many chicken enchiladas, so I made this up to make a slightly different meal. I used the remaining sauce from the chicken enchilada recipe, then added the remaining chicken and added the chicken broth.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(179 ratings)

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.4/5
(54 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.
