Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew
Very Good 4.7/5
(1153 ratings)

I love this stew! It is so easy and leaves me feeling satisfied. I use 3/4 cup as a serving. If it is too spicy for you, substitute a can of diced tomatoes for one of the diced tomatoes w/chilies.

Southwestern Quesadillas
Very Good 4.6/5
(28 ratings)

This is a spin-off of the Chili's Southwestern Egg rolls. Instead of deep-frying the filling, you put it in a tortilla and make a quesadilla.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(283 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Will replace turkey with TVP reconstituted with fat free chicken broth and use a la tortilla factory low carb small tortilla. Homemade salsa and low fat cheese. I know this will be a weekly meal. I know it's not a proper calzone but I can't have that much bread.

Endless Mexican Chicken
(no ratings)

This recipe is not only delicious and quick to make it's your workhorse if you love Mexican food.
Cook this recipe up in large volumes and store in the freezer for quick use when you've a craving for something over-the-border.

Replace this for ordinary chicken and beef in tacos.
Bake into enchiladas
Combine with rice into burritos
Serve over tortilla chips for a healthy version of nachos

The uses are only limited by your imagination.

This took me 10 minutes to imagine up and we'll get a lifetime of dishes out of it.

Have Fun and Happy, Healthy Eating!
