As I mentioned the other day, I’ve bought some new cookbooks for healthier eating. Today’s new recipe comes from “The Best of Cooking Light Everyday Favorites” cookbook.
I really love this cookbook. It has so many delicious and healthy recipes to choose from, even a whole section of light desserts! And as an added bonus, each recipe lists the nutritional facts.
So for our dinner last night, I chose the Cheese Enchilada Casserole located on page 114. This quick casserole recipe gives you a yummy layered enchilada instead of the traditional rolled version. This casserole is only 299 calories per serving (1 1/4 cups).
The only thing I would note is that the recipe calls for a full cup of taco sauce over the top. My husband and I both agreed that it was a little much.
The strong taste of the taco sauce took over the casserole. Next time I would use probably about half of what the recipe calls for.
