Reduced-Fat King Ranch Casserole
We ditched the canned condensed soup. could we ditch most of the fat, too?
Why This Recipe Works
This comforting Texas casserole is loaded with condensed soup and cheese sauce, not to mention a Frito topping. After nixing the canned soup, we cut fat and calories by replacing the heavy cream and most of the cheese with a combination of low-fat cream cheese and a flour-thickened broth. Our own seasoned corn tortillas make for a crunchy, flavorful topping without turning to a bag of corn chips. Tomatoes, chiles, onions, and fresh cilantro round out this lighter but just as comforting take on the classic.
