Is this a completely dead group

Great idea for a group, but I get the sense it's a ghost town.

Wish it was active with more people sharing recipes with other health conscious foodies!
HELLO, is there anybody out there???

    I love Reddit, never thought about looking there for recipes..


    And I love Tex-Mex, especially enchiladas! Bakes like that are great, because they last. I'll take a scoop of left over casserole like this and top a taco salad or put in the middle of an omelet.

    I love casseroles too. Sounds like you have some great ideas with the leftovers too. It may be a bit too hot for casseroles this time of year but here is one of my favorites. It is kinda like a "no roll up" enchilada casserole. Here it is. Let me know if you try it:

    MEXICAN-STYLE LASAGNA

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 lb. ground beef (can substitute turkey or chicken)
    1 cup salsa of choice
    1 pkg taco seasoning mix (or I make my own with ingredients below)
    6 corn tortillas (6 inch)
    1 can (15 oz.) pinto beans, rinsed
    1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend)
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    Jalapenos or green chilies to taste (optional)

    Optional substitute: make your own taco seasoning mix:
    1 Tblsp. chili powder
    1 ½ tsp paprika
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    ½ tsp salt
    ½ tsp cumin
    ½ tsp oregano
    ½ tsp black pepper
    ¼ tsp red pepper flakes

    DIRECTIONS:
    Heat oven to 400°F.
    1. Brown meat in large skillet; drain (unless meat is really lean). Add bell pepper and onion. Stir in salsa and seasoning mix; simmer on low heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spread ½ cup onto bottom of 8” square or 8” X 9” baking dish sprayed with olive oil. Cover with 2 tortillas.
    2. Top with layers of ½ cup meat mixture, half the beans, ½ cup cheese and 2 tortillas. Repeat layers. Top with remaining meat mixture and cheese. Cover.
    3. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Makes 6 servings: 430 calories, 20g total fat, 9g sat fat, 1120mg sodium (if using packaged taco seasoning), 35g carbohydrate, 27g protein.
