The Family Table: Mexican Casserole Makeover

By EatingWell Editors, June/July 2006

Remaking Chilaqules Casserole: How we made this family's favorite meal healthier.

Our makeover meal boosts fruits and vegetables considerably, sneaking stealth vegetables into the chilaquiles and serving up an easy salad with a master dressing recipe that can be used all week long. And there’s always room for a healthy dessert, especially when it’s a crumble made from seasonal fruit that bakes during dinner. Best of all, since every meal component has built-in leftover potential, this dinner makes the rest of a busy week easier too.
