Mexican Potato Bake

Ok now y’all know I’m not a vegetarian.  But dang, this is one meal that could convince me that I might not miss meat as much as I think I would.  Not that I’m considering giving up meat or anything…

Seriously though, this was one very delicious and very filling meal.  My husband LOVES Mexican food, and this is a more unique way to serve Mexican.  Cuz I don’t know about you, but to me quesadillas, burritos, and enchiladas kind of all taste the same.  This was a nice change of pace but still kept that great Mexican flavor.


Once we had eaten our dinner, we scraped up the last few bites of beans and cheese on the plate with some tostitos.  Mmmmm that made some great nachos!  My only regret is this: when we were cleaning up the kitchen, I opened the fridge and saw some tomatoes, and I thought, “DANG! I should’ve diced some tomatoes to put on there!”  I’m sure that would’ve been awesome, but it’ll just have to wait til next time!

This is really a great Weight Watchers recipe, whether you’re vegetarian or not!

  1. I made this last night for a family reunion today and made a little extra so we could try it for dinner last night. It was a big hit at home and at the reunion. I included the tomatoes which was a great idea for color and taste. The leftover broccoli salad was a nice side dish!

    • I was really pleased with this dish and didn’t really expect it to turn out as great as it did! I’m glad everyone liked it! Thanks 🙂
