    Is the cream of chicken soup called for in “Creamy Beef Tortilla Bake” the full strength ready-to-serve kind or the concentrated add-a-can-of-water kind?

    This looks great. I love your recipes. However I am extremely nutritious conscious, and need to know the caloric and nutrient breakdown for single servings. Please work toward adding this analysis to ALL your emeal recipes.

      I use to calculate nutrition info. It’s got a great tool to add your recipes, and it breaks down calories, fat, carbs, protein, fiber, and vitamins. Haven’t done it yet for this recipe.

        Great idea, thanks. I have used My Fitness Pal in the past. However we are paying for recipes to save us time. Having to input all the ingredients for every recipe that doesn’t include nutritional information is not a time saver.

      I agree. It is frustrating to have a plan that is the “low Calorie Plan” and not have portion sizes or nutritional information (calorie count) for the breakfasts and sometimes lunches.

    I omitted the chili powder and added some seasoned salt, and my kids (2 & 3) devoured this! The 3 year old said, “Mommy, you’re a good cooker!” Woohoo! 🙂
