I also added some pan drippings and fat cut from the Top Sirloin I had cooked for dinner for flavor. Did not how to record that. So, I am sure it added some more calories etc.

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

This is a great soup and quite hearty to warm one's soul. It makes 18 servings and is even better the next day.

Since our family has to watch sodium for medical issues, we do not use chicken soup base or bouillon when called for and instead use homemade chicken stock. By doing so we can control the sodium as needed. This recipe's nutritional info is if you are using homemade stock/low sodium homemade stock.

You may also cut back on the fat by using a substitute for the butter and/or cheese if you wish. We opted for Smart Balance Buttery Lite Spread for this recipe and nutritional info.

Remember the cooking time is 5 Hours on High or 8 Hours on Low in your Slow Cooker.

Please see the bottom of instructions if you wish to use chicken base instead of stock.

Hope you enjoy the recipe.

I found this recipe on the back of the box of the Old El Paso Soft Taco Bake Kit. I altered the recipe by changing a few ingredients. It called for salsa, kidney beans, and Monterrey Jack cheese. I used Fat Free Refried beans instead of the salsa and kidney beans.

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche
Very Good 4.5/5

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

I lowered the fat and calories of traditional potato soup by using 1% milk and using turkey bacon and low fat cheese as garnishes instead of ingredients.
