Stealthy Slow-Cooker Chilaquiles Casserole

Corn, mild Mexican spices and tomato enchilada sauce are layered with shredded cheese between corn tortillas. We promise no one will notice the crumbled tofu layered in with the corn. Top this crowd-pleasing casserole with more cheese and green onions.

Sloppy Josés

Slipping lentils into lean ground beef adds a boost of healthy fiber to these sloppy joes (and saves you some dough at the grocery store). Don't worry; these sandwiches aren't too spicy for the little ones. They get their South of the Border flavor from a bit of cumin and a can of chopped mild green chilies. Just add chili powder to taste.
