Tortilla lasagna:
1 pkg. whole wheat tortillas
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1-2 lbs hamburger(lean)
1 pkg. frozen corn
1 container non-fat sour cream
1 can fat-free refried beans
1 pkg. shredded light cheese(I use chedder)
1 can salsa
I spray the crockpot, and just start layering!! It cooks on low for 4-6 hours. Oh, I brown the hamburger and add some diced onions and peppers, w/the taco seasoning. You can use more or less seasoning, I use 1 pkg only due to salt.

This is one of my 'Go-To' meals. I've been known to swap out the main ingredients, like chicken pieces for ground beef, or stir fry style veggies instead of plain mixed. I've even eliminated the seasonings & broth if the veggies are strongly flavored or if the meat was seasoned.

Venus De Milo Soup

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 lb mixed vegetables
1 (15 oz)can cannelini beans, rinsed & drained
1 (15 oz) can diced or stewed tomatoes
2 (14 oz)can beef broth *
2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

Brown beef & onions on stove top, drain. Place all ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low 6-8 hours, high 4-6 hours.
* I like it extra thick & chunky so I use only 1 can



Let's be nice to OURSELVES

Easy Chili
per serving: 290 cal, 3.8g fat, 8.3g fiber, 30.1g carbs

Really easy chili, only a little pit of prep. I make it with ground turkey but it can certainly be made with ground beef if you prefer.
I often serve this with store-bought corn bread as a treat.

1.5 pounds ground turkey (extra lean/99% fat free)
1.5 cups coarsely chopped onions (prefer red)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 jar (26oz) pasta sauce (prefer Classico Tomato &Basil)
1 can (19oz) red kidney beans, drained

Using a skillet brown the ground turkey*, onions, and chili powder together, drain. Add to slowcooker, add beans and pasta sauce. Stir.
Cover slowcooker and cook on LOW for 4 hours or on HIGH for 2 hours.
Makes 6 1-cup servings.


*If you've never browned ground turkey before - it doesn't really brown it "whites". I add this for those of you who, like me, are just starting to cook and don't know these things. Enjoy!

Meatball Appetizer

Roll up ground beef into one inch balls.
Brown them in a skillet.
Put two jars of grape jelly into crockpot and melt it on low.
Add meatballs...cook on low until cooked through.
The longer you cook it, the better.
Use lean meat and sugar free jelly for the healthy version.
