Enchilada Pie

30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
10 ingredients
8 servings
The original recipe is from All New Cookbook for Diabetics and their Families from University of Alabama at Birmingham published by Oxmoor House. I add twice as much salt as originally called for, use 1/2 t red pepper flakes instead of 1/4 t black pepper and normally add extra onion. I also serve with lettuce, tomato and sour cream to round out the meal. Do not skip the water and also do yourself a favor and use fresh spices. If your spices are over a year or two old throw them away and buy new. The dish will taste much better that way. The (diabetic) recipe exchanges are 2 medium-fat meat and 1 vegetable but only if you use lean ground chuck AND low-fat american cheese.
