This dish reminds me of some of the best Cuban meals I've ever had! It's a bit spicy, but for those that like it spicy, you'll love it! Skewers of chicken grilled to perfection!

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5

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.

Spoon some of this over your Greek yogurt in the morning--NOW we're talkin'! This beats the processed stuff anytime.

4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup wheat germ toasted
1/4 cup flaxseed, ground
1/2 cup dried apples, lightly packed, chopped
1/2 cup raisins

Ahead of Time: In a bowl, combine oats, nuts, and cinnamon. Add honey and toss to coat. (Mixture will form clumps that will separate during baking.) Spread mixture evenly in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes. Using a wide spatula, lift and turn mixture over. Bake for 5 minutes more. Remove from oven and turn mixture again. Let cool on a wire rack.

Stir in wheat germ, flaxseed, apples, and raisins. Store muesli in a tightly covered container for up to 1 month.

Yield: 6 Cups; Serving = 2 tablespoons
