Dinner time doesn’t have to be boring. Have a party in the kitchen and fill your taste buds with some good eats! Trim Healthy Mama is not only a healthy way to eat, but the food is fantastic! This recipe takes a well loved book recipe and turns it into a casserole the whole family will enjoy. You can make it as spicy as you like. I keep things to a medium heat at my house for all to enjoy. This is easy to assemble ahead of time so that you only have to pull it out of the fridge and bake in the evening, if that makes things simpler.
1 recipe Just Like Campbell’s Tomato Soup (page 292/293)
2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
1 tsp high mineral salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 cup sour cream or 0% Greek Yogurt
1 cup salsa (your spicy level)
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated (divided in half)
6-8 low carb tortillas (use 6 if they are bigger than fajita size)
**For a Grain and Gluten free option, use the Wonder Wraps from the THM book in place of the tortillas!
Preheat oven 350*. Grease 9×13″ pan. Make your Just Like Campbell’s Soup and set aside. Brown ground beef. Rinse off the fat and add meat back to pan. Slice low carb tortillas in 3/4″ pieces. Add with remaining ingredients to the meat, including your soup. Stir together. Spoon into baking pan, and top with remaining cheddar cheese. You could also layer the tortillas like you would in a lasagna. I layered it this way in the picture. Either way, it works great! Bake 25- 30 minutes. This makes a great assemble ahead of time casserole to keep in fridge until you can bake. If coming from the fridge bake about 45 minutes. Serves 8-10.
Some may ask me for the Just Like Campbell’s soup recipe from the book. Well, you will just have to buy the Trim Healthy Mama book to get that special recipe. I’d not give out one of their recipes. It’s really a healthy alternative to canned tomato soup! I have NEVER liked tomato soup, but happen to LOVE this soup recipe from Pearl and Serene.
Serve this casserole with a big salad or another veggie of your choice. My friend, Caroline’s recipe for Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice looks amazing as a “S”/low carb setting side dish. The kids could eat some Baked Blue Corn Chips on the side or some brown Spanish brown rice for a nice Crossover. Briana has some Rice and Beans you might enjoy in a Crossover setting as well and Mrs. Criddle’s Kitchen has a nice Mexican Brown Rice too. Both of those sides are nice Crossovers for those nursing or pregnant mamas, growing kiddos or for someone at goal weight.
