Low-cal Mexican bake. Yes, really. Remind yourself you're eating smart as you dig into layers of tortilla, salsa, beef and veggies. (Your brain might tell you you’re lying.)

    Made it again. It is really very good. However, I used HOT salsa, which was not a good idea due to the chili powder. I make it a round casserole and slice like a pie.

    Really tasty. Might try it w/a can of black beans in it the next time.
