I receive the South Beach Diet Online "Daily dish" email. This is one of the new recipes in the new cookbook. They sent me a recipe for mexican lasagna that I would LOVE to try. Here's the recipe:
1 pound extra lean ground beef/turkey
1/2 large onion
1 large clove garlic
1/12 cups low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 jar chopped green chile peppers (4 oz)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/8 teas salt
2 1/2 cups salsa
4 whole wheat tortillas (6")
1 1/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat Monterey-jack
Preheat to 350
Brown beef, set beef aside in bowl. Brown onions and garlic and then add to beef
In another bowl, combine cottage cheese, sour cream, peppers, cumin and salt
Spread 1 cup of the salsa across the bottom of the baking dish (13 X 9). Arrange half of the tortillas evenly over the salsa. Spread half of the cheese over the tortillas. Top with half of the ground beef. Top with 1 cup of the remaining salsa and 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat layers.
HERE's my QUESTION: Where does the cottage cheese mixture fit in? It doesn't account for it. Do you think that you mix it up with the salsa???? Help!
