Flourless Eggplant Pizza

Mini eggplant-based pizza rounds! Variations are limitless. I bake these at 6,000 feet in Tahoe, so you may want to bake longer if you're at sea level.

Seasoned Mexican meatloaf is pure comfort food in a pan made with crushed tortilla chips, beef, pepper Jack cheese, and onion topped with taco sauce.

Anne's Chicken Chilaquiles Rojas

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
One of my favorite comfort foods from growing up in Tucson. It's great for a potluck or party and you'll get lots of compliments from your guests! This is a "roja" version but there is a "verde" style, too. Both are great and can be made hot or mild depending upon your heat tolerances or preferences. Serve with your favorite salsa, if desired.

This shrimp and grits recipe is a traditional low-country favorite!

Southwestern Chicken, Squash, and Cornbread Casserole

Turn leftover chicken into a comforting casserole with "South-of-the Border" flair! Beautiful summer squash and zucchini, along with canned Southwest style corn and RO*TEL®, join with a queso-like sauce, and everything is covered with Mexican cornbread. Garnish with sour cream, or guacamole, or salsa, whatever your taste buds desire!

Baked Chicken Empanadas

These are quick and easy to make. And for an easier prep, I used diced rotisserie chicken and jarred salsa.

Vegan "Meatloaf"

Traditional easy-to-make vegan "meatloaf". Love pairing this with a green and a fruit for a well-balanced, colorful meal. Since everything is getting mixed together, no need for perfection and fine knife skills with this recipe. It makes great leftovers!
