I recommend this to anyone who is trying to eat healthier! It was filling and great the next day at lunch. I added some red peppers to the pan as well because we like them so much.

very tasty. didn't even miss the meat. we thought they needed more sauce on top, though, so served with salsa in addition to sour cream. next time will use more picante sauce before baking.
