Southwestern Vegtable Bake


This one was actually first discovered by DH in the Cooking Light, 5 ingredient 15 minute cookbook I gave him for Christmas one year. (talk about a hint hint!) I know, you are all shocked that Mark would pick a vegatarian entree to try, but I tell you, that meat eater act is all a show. This recipe is so simple, that it is hard to see how it will work as a main course, but it really does. The key ingredient that gives it so much flavor is a can of Rotel's chili fixings. This, or any "chili style tomatoes" aren't always easy to find, so when I do see it, I will buy more than one can. I always serve it with torilla chips, then pair it with either apple slices or avacado. This week, I made quesadillas to go along with it. This would make a great side to any mexican meal, or it would be good just with chips.

See ... I never would have noticed there was a Rotel Chili fixins until you pointed it out. Nice! I'm so glad to have some Rotel back in my life!
