Happy Monday & Happy Cookin’ all! I honestly do not know where to start as there is so much deliciousness in today’s post. It probably started last night when I put this 7 point Weight Watchers “Chorizo” and Tortilla Casserole in the slow cooker. I am pretty sure I dreamt about gooey, cheesy, tortillas all night long.
Here is how I made it. I used just one large onion, 2 bell peppers, 1 jalapeno for a spicy kick & 2 garlic cloves.
Spray you slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray then build all those delicious layers. Corn tortillas, 1/3 of the sausage/pepper mix, 1/2 cup Lite Mexican Cheese. Repeat 3 times.
Whisk 12 eggs with 1 cup 1% milk, sea salt & black pepper. Pour over your casserole.
Top with the last 1/2 cup cheese (yep, this baby has 2 cups of cheese in it!) Slow cook on low for 6 – 8 hours or high for 2 hours.
Until everything is cooked through and the cheese is melted all over the top.
So, the one thing I didn’t read before making this is that it makes 12 servings. I couldn’t fathom cutting this into 12 or eating that many servings so I divided it into 10 for 7 Smartpoints each.
The verdict – it’s so good! It reminds me of cheese enchiladas but with fun spicy sausage bites throughout. This would totally work for any meal of the day.
** You could make this vegetarian using Soyrizo.
Good stuff, right?! And that only gets us to breakfast. Lunch involved another Taylor Farms Asian Salad – I’m so in love with these. Dessert was a new recipe for 3 Smartpoints Cinnamon Banana bread I made up yesterday. I’ll share it with you all tomorrow. Dinner…well, I have even more pictures to share with you all below.

I’ve been asked by several of you of you if I get Blue Apron often. Honestly no, but, every now and then there is a menu I just can’t resist and you all know I’m easily influenced by food lol.
I think I also enjoy the challenge and finding new ways to cook foods. Like tonight’s dinner – I loved everything about it and will definitely repeat it. I do not know why I never thought to bake flour tortillas with real deal cheese on them but it’s such a great idea.
I lighten it up by using nonstick spray or less oil and skipping the things I do not like (sour cream). I usually 1/3 of what I make and The Husband has 2/3’s.
Such a delicious for day – I can’t wait to eat the rest! I love feeling excited for what’s on the menu as it makes me happy and it so much easier to stick to the plan.
