This is my recipe for meat Tamales. You can use any kind of meat, but for the sake of calculations I used a chuck beef for roast.

Original recipe calls for regular breakfast sausage, such as Jimmy Dean. But I found this substitute to taste just as good and much less fat and healthier. A great grab and go breakfast. Make ahead and wrap individually in the refridge, micro for 30 seconds on high and go!!

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

Lumpia or Filipino Egg Roll
Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

This is one type of Lumpia (Tagalog for Eggroll-it's a Filipino Eggroll). I prefer using Ground Beef and Ground Pork but you can use the Ground Chicken or Ground Turkey along with the Pork also. I DO NOT COOK MY MEAT AND VEGGIES I prefer to mix them together in a bowl with the seasonings and then roll them in the Lumpia to a somewhat small size then deep fry them. They are more flavorful that way. You can cook it if you want to but it may not come out as well. I also prefer to use Chinese Yard Long Pole Beans cut into small diagonal pieces instead of regular Green Beans. I also use MSG in some of my cooking or otherwise known as Accent. It does help to bring flavors out in your cooking, but, this is optional for anyone else but me. I do not use regular Egg Roll Wraps. I prefer to use Lumpia Wraps(o'tasty spring roll wraps is the commercial name for them in the stores) which are larger and come in crepe thin slices. I also prefer to seal my wrappers with raw egg. It comes out better that way but you can use water-flour paste also. I also prefer to cut my veggies into tiny matchstick pieces. It's better that way in the Lumpia but you can do it anyway you want. For a dipping sauce you can use the Lumpia Sauce recipe below but in mine I turn it into a Sweet and Sour Sauce by making Annatto Water and adding 1/3 cup to the recipe instead of water, and 1/4 c crushed pineapples in juice. You can also mix in bits of bell pepper if you like. This is the Annatto Water recipe aka Achiote Water also: In a small heavy saucepan, heat the water over medium heat. Add the annatto seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until the water becomes a rich, orange-red color, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Strain the water into a jar, discarding the seeds, and keep covered in the refrigerator. You can do the same thing using Oil to make Annatto Oil. I also prefer to use just the soy sauce and about 1/4 vinegar mixed with fresh, not cooked, garlic and onion diced up and crushed with a bit of black pepper or chili peppers crushed in as a dipping sauce. I also like to use 1/4 Fish Sauce(Patis) mixed with 1/2 Lemon or Lime Juice for dipping also.

I simmer my stew meat in the crock pot half the day, so this is really easy, when the meat is tender I transfer to a pan or wok and cook up the veggies! Super easy, no fuss dinner!
