EatingWell King Ranch Casserole

EatingWell King Ranch Casserole Recipe
This healthy Tex-Mex King Ranch casserole recipe is typically made with cans of cream-of-something soup. We’ve lightened up this casserole recipe considerably by making a homemade cream sauce and loading it up with veggies at the same time. You’ll never guess that a serving of our version of King Ranch casserole has 300 fewer calories and two-thirds less fat than the original. This recipe makes enough for two 8-by-8-inch casseroles (four servings each)—have one for dinner tonight and freeze the other for a night when you don’t have time to make dinner.

Seafood Chowder Casserole

Seafood Chowder Casserole Recipe
New England seafood chowder inspired the flavors here, but we’ve enhanced them further with Gruyère cheese and a crispy crumb topping. We like the combination of shrimp, cod and crab, but feel free to experiment with other types of seafood—scallops, clams and mahi-mahi would also work well.

You don't need to prepare this in a tagine dish—it works well in a large saucepan—but if you have one, here's a chance to use it.
