Mexican Pizza
Very Good 4.7/5

I had left over taco meat along with refried beans, tortillas, diced tomatoes, green onion, salsa and cheese and wanted to make something interesting with the left overs.

If you don't have left over seasoned ground beef, then you will need to make it before starting this recipe.

Bariatric Galabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls) tlh
Very Good 4.8/5
(9 ratings)

I like these because they are a complete meal-in-one. Meat, vegetable and a little starch all wrapped up in each bundle.

This recipe makes up quicker than most when using a pressure cooker but it can be baked in the oven or in a Dutch oven on top of the stove.

There is some brown rice in it but the percentage of carbs is low and the protein is high. Ground turkey could be substituted for one or both of the meats but the nutrition information would need to be changed.

There are many different kinds of stuffed cabbage recipes originating from many countries. This is more like the Polish-type (pronounced go-wum-ki) and is simpler than others. If your lifestyle is like mine, simple is better!

Slice all the ingredients. Slice chicken breast. Place on a hot grill. Then add the cilantro at the end of cooking.

I make fried rice quite often - any time I have leftover cooked rice, actually. This time I also had a leftover pork chop, but you can leave it out of course. The vegetable amounts are approximate, I just use what I have.

This easy to prepare dinner can be assembled the night before to save time at dinner or allow someone to just put in the oven for you.

Alterations can be made.
Examples: Chicken breasts instead of Pork chops. Any flavor of stuffing. Low sodium stuffing can be used. And you can substitute cream of chicken or celery for the cream of mushroom.

Low sodium and fat, and pretty good on the potassium too.
We strain out the onions and garlic and serve them with it.
