El Charro's Chilaquiles from Apron Strings

Donna and Anne from Apron Strings describe their recipe for Chilaquiles as an easy Mexican casserole that's perfect for Meatless Monday.   However, if it's swelteringly hot where you live, don't be too worried about that word casserole, because this spicy combination of tortilla chips, eggs, green chiles, cheese, corn, and enchilada sauce only needs a quick 20 minutes in the oven to melt the ingredients together.   Not only is this a delicious and flexible meatless recipe, but it's also a great way to use tortilla chips that are a little past their prime! ...more

There's no doubt that it was partly the name that drew me to this recipe; well that and Susan's gorgeous photo. But once I got reading the ingredients, I realized that not only is this recipe bursting with nutrition, it also sounded delicious.

If it's starting to get hot where you live, this Mexican Rice Bowl from Two Peas and Their Pod might be a perfect easy dinner.

Spicy Red Lentil and Chickpea Stew from Kalyn's Kitchen

A few years ago a reader named Paula sent me this recipe for Spicy Red Lentil and Chickpea Stew, and since then I've made it over and over for parties, wedding showers, and just to have in the fridge for week-night dinners. Paula called this Moroccan Lentil Stew, and I'm not sure if the flavors here are really authentically Moroccan but the combination of spices in this dish is perfect. It's also easy to make vegan if you use vegetable stock and substitute for the sour cream. ...more
