I don’t need many reasons to justify eating cheese for ANY occasion. Hence the reason I love both Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican dishes.

The recipe for my great-tasting Low-Carb Tex-Mex Casserole came about when I was looking for ways to enjoy some of my cheesy favorites but wanted to forgo the carbs. The secret to this dish is the egg and Greek yogurt cream cheese layer. It is simple, fluffy, slightly creamy, and very fulfilling — which allows you to chow down on this casserole minus the guilt or the full-filling after effect! It’s my go to at home quite often.

The well seasoned ground beef mixture is the perfect protein to accompany this dish . Blended with delicious spices and a tomato base, it serves as the hearty and middle layer to the casserole. The finishing touch is the generous layer of Colby cheese. Once ready and served, I top it off with a dollop of homemade guacamole and sour cream. Tasty perfection!
