Mexican THM Menu Session 5

I LOVE and adore Mexican food. I would eat Mexican EVERY day if I could.  Not everything likes mexican food so if you don't... please skip this menu.  :-)  I make each recipe 2 times and I made the menu for 6-8 servings. Picture compliments of Mrs. Criddles Kitchen.


Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas - THM S - kit
Black Beans and Rice Burritos - THM E - kit
Tomato Spinach and Bean Burritos - THM E- kit
Mexican Chicken Casserole - THM S - make your own on plan chips
Grain Free Nacho Pot Pie - THM S - kit
Salsa Chicken Casserole - THM E - Use fat free cheese
Chili Rellenos Casserole - THM S
Green Chili and Chicken Mock Enchiladas - THM S
Crock Pot Chicken and Quinoa - THM E
Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas - THM S - I use low carb tortillas. You can use up to 1/4 cup beans and still be on plan for an S.

The shopping and prep list.

Disclaimer: Some recipes are not written THM friendly, and I just replace items and I sometimes miss posting it on my menu. So if you see a non plan approved sweetener assume you add a THM friendly sweetener. For tortillas I use Low Carb tortillas instead etc. Pasta I like to use zucchini noodles or Dreamfields
