I use pork in this recipe, but it actually works well with just about any protein, esp. chicken, ground beef, or steak.
This recipe makes two 9x13 casseroles. I always bake one and freeze one.
I make my own guacamole that is lower in fat than the store bought version - mash a really ripe avocado with about a tbsp of salsa (or more, depending on your taste) and a tsp or so of lemon or lime juice. This makes about 1 cup and has 300 cal and 27 grams of fat - divided by 12 that's 25 cal and 2.025 grams of fat per serving.
I make the sour milk by adding a small amount of white vinegar to my milk and letting it sit for about 10-15 min.
If you don't like refried beans, this recipe works quite will without them. You may want to add a little more of the Philly cooking cream or the taco sauce to keep it nice and moist.
This is a favorite dish of my family; the original also contains fritos chips and hormel chili - really high fat. This is my attempt to make something that tastes the same, but is about half the fat.
The serving sizes are based on a heaping cup of the lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes, then topped with 1 oz chips, approx. 3 oz of meat and beans, and 2 tbsp of dressing.
This can also be made without the meatballs for a great meatless casserole.
I like to serve these with Lipton Noodles and Sides, usually a butter flavor, or garlic and herb flavor. The meatballs can be served over the noodles or beside them. I did not include the noodles in the nutrition info.
This is the recipe just for the meatballs. Use your own favorite recipe for sauce, or a store bought sauce.
Yummy and sweet, but somewhat high in sugar, so we only have small portions. A great way to get kids to eat cooked carrots!
