Default Weight Watchers Mexican Casserole

Delicious!

I omitted the corn (I really only like it on the cob).

Photos are of the casserole before cheese, after cheese (WW shredded Mexican blend), and plated. I served it over a bed of chopped lettuce and topped it with some typical taco toppings.

Excellent!

That looks great! I'd add the corn but use frozen.

I agree and think it looks great. I heard a program on Canada radio where canned corn had more nutrition than frozen. I dunno?

It might, but it also has more sodium. I just like frozen corn better because the canned seems like little withered watered down kernels. PictSweet frozen is my choice.
