    Is there any chance of some recipes that don't have cheese in them ?

    I know that most people like cheese but some don't (including me) and it is often annoying to find nearly every recipe with cheese in it.

    I made this tonight and it would work equally well without cheese!

    I think it would taste nicer if it were cooked longer and at a lower temperature, giving the spices a chance to marry with the ingredients.

    This one, by far, is the most delicious recipe I have tried on this website. I definitely am going to try it again (and again). Thank you!

    Super easy to put together and really tasty! If you like Tex mex flavours, this is a must try! It's very filling as well, I found the recipe to serve maybe 6 instead with a side salad or veggies.

    This was so delicious! It satisfied my craving for Mexican food. I used homemade mayo but didn't have enough, so I made up the difference with sour cream. I also added a can of green chiles to the mix, as well as some fresh spinach that I steamed and squeezed dry. It added a little more time to the prep, but it was worth it. I'll be making this again.

    Absolutely loved this dish and it was so quick and easy to make. This casserole would be perfect over fat head crackers dished up like nachos

    Any chance these keto recipes can include calories as well as I'm watching my net carbs (20 gram and under) but I don't want to blow my daily calories allowance as I'm trying to keep calories around 1200-1400/day thanks

    Hello

    Please, can you switch the serving from percent to grams or include a nutritional panel.

    I am on a weight loss journey trying to go from 104 kg to a more healthy weight and I fill in a diet app daily to keep track of everything I eat and it is hard to do when you don't know this information.

    I use a lot of your recipes as my daughter is lactose and gluten intolerant and these are the only ones that can cover my WOE and her dietary needs.

    Thank you

    Just made this, it was really tasty but the sauce didn't melt (As it looks in the pic), I gave it an extra five mins too. Any ideas where I went wrong? :)

    Mine was a little dry before I put it in the oven so I mixed in some heavy cream and some salsa (sweetener free, of course.) Next time I’ll throw in some chilis.
    Great recipe. My husband, who is very skeptical of all things low carb, was very surprised at how good it was.

    If using cream cheese, should that be melted to be more liquid? Mine didn't do anything in the oven other than sit on top. It tastes good, but certainly didn't look as nice.

    They have a dairy free section here :)
