 Ingredients List

  • 12 oz Ground beef; cooked
  • Turkey
  • 1 ts Seasoned salt
  • 2 tb Taco seasoning mix
  • 1 c Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 c Chopped tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 c Tomato sauce
  • 1 c Cottage cheese
  • 3 lg Eggs
  • 12 6" corn tortillas;
  • -(quartered)
  • 6 oz Monterey Jack Cheese


Cook meat; salt, taco seasoning, tomatoes, rotel and sauce. Simmer. Combine
cottage cheese and eggs. May run through blender. In bottom of 9 x 13 pan
sprayed with Pam place 1/2 meat mixture, top with 1/2 tortillas, 1/2
cottage cheese. Top with 1/2 MJ cheese. Repeat layers Bake at 350 degrees
for 25 minutes. This is geared towards WW - 1 portion = 4 oz protein (1/2
egg, 1/2 cheese); 1 vegetable; 2 bread This recipe is really "HOT" - since
we don't care for the really "HOT" - here is how I alter it to our taste.

Omit 1 cup Rotel; use 2 cups chopped tomatoes; reduce tomato sauce to 1 cup
and add 1/2 cup mild Pace's Picante sauce. Same "counts" apply, much less
spicy. I have taken this to several "Pot luck" suppers and never have any
left overs - also take several copies of the recipe since I always get lots
of requests.

Use more MJ cheese if you're not concerned about calorie counting. ENJOY!
