Low Carb Mexican Casserole

This is such a great, healthy and quick family favorite. Well, we love Mexican food in our house. On Sundays we often go to one of the many Mexican restaurants in our town. I sometimes make my own chips or bring some baked blue tortilla chips so I don’t eat all of the tortilla chips that they bring out hot and fresh to the table. I have even seen a lady use pork rinds as a chip and eat her salsa. I really wanted to go and talk to her but that would be a little on the crazy side.

This can be made ahead as part of your food prep if you like. This is a great meal to take to potlucks as well. I often bring my own food so I don’t eat off plan. With so many people eating keto, low carb or trim healthy mama, this fits all of those. And even people who don’t follow those plans any will still love this casserole.  I eat this with a small salad and some avocado, when they are on sale.
