Soups on…………………..

Soups are easy to make in large batches, and are one of the most freezer-friendly dishes around. So, double up on ingredients, grab a larger pot and make two meals instead of one. Let hot soups cool at room temperature, uncovered for 1 to 1/2 hours — or until almost at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Soups can last in the fridge for up to three days. Freeze soups after they have been chilled overnight in the fridge. Soups will last up to two months in the freezer.

Enjoy Healthy Mexican Recipes for Weeknights with recipes like; Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas, Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas, and Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake. Find these recipes and more all at the EatingWell website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.eatingwell.com/

Healthy Mexican Recipes for Weeknights
We love Mexican cuisine, but often going out for Mexican food means extra calories, fat and salt. It doesn’t have to be that way, because the key ingredients that make Mexican recipes naturally healthy—beans, rice, salsa, avocados—are so delicious. Stock up on these healthy foods and whip up a mouthwatering Mexican meal at home any night of the week.

Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas
This vegetarian enchilada recipe is weeknight-fast when you skip the step of filling and rolling the enchiladas and make a stacked enchilada casserole instead. Just layer the tortillas, sauce and cheesy spinach filling the way you would lasagna and have the casserole in the oven in 20 minutes…….

Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake
Shrimp enchiladas offer a taste of coastal Mexican cuisine but some versions contain so much cheese, butter and sour cream that they can pack a whopping 50 grams of fat per serving. Our version has vibrant flavor and only half the calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, plus we use precooked peeled shrimp so you can get the dish on your table fast enough for a weeknight supper. The addition of refried beans helps makes these enchiladas an excellent source of fiber as well……………..

Chilaquiles Casserole
Our version of this enchilada-style chilaquiles casserole is packed with nutritious beans and vegetables. Canned prepared enchilada sauce has great flavor and keeps the prep time quick. It can vary in heat level so find one that suits your taste. If you want to eliminate the heat altogether, try a green enchilada sauce (which is often milder than red) or substitute two 8-ounce cans of plain tomato sauce……………….

Less fat for your soups, stews……….

Refrigerate soups, stews and gravy. Skim the fat off the surface before serving. Plus by letting your soup or stew sit in the fridge overnight it will taste even better the next day!

Thicken the stew……………

An easy method of thickening stews, soups, or creamed vegetables is to add a small amount of quick-cooking oats, a grated potato,or some instant potatoes. Never add flour directly, as it will clump. However, you can mix the flour with melted butter and add that mixture to your dish.

Slow Cookers………

Avoid overcrowding when using your slow cooker. For the best results, fill a slow cooker between one-half and two-thirds full. Go ahead and cook big roasts and whole chickens; just make sure you use a large crock and that the lid fits snugly on top. Set it and forget it!
