Paleo Enchilada Bake



High protein, low carb diets are all the rage. I try to make meals that everyone can try. Who knows? You might like the low carb version more! I love Mexican food but I find sometimes that the grease and tortillas do not make my stomach happy. Here is a way to enjoy those delicious flavors without the guilt!

Oh, by the way, a few weeks ago I had Pasta Fagioli as my On The Menu but did not include the most important ingredient . . . pasta! You can use anything from tube noodles to broken pieces of vermicelli pasta in that soup mixture. Thank you, David for asking if it was a new version of the soup and if I meant to leave out that main ingredient. You always keep me on my toes “Clarence.”
