Vegetarian Black Bean Cakes with Orange-Basil Salsa
Very Good 4.3/5
(166 ratings)

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.

My Spicy Old Fashioned Meatloaf
Very Good 4.4/5
(70 ratings)

I like things a little on the spicy side so this is my meatloaf. It has tons of onion and a load of flavor! You can cook it topped with additional ketchup or back it like it is. The only reason I made this is so I could figure out the calorie count but thought I might save others the trouble. Enjoy!

Low-Fat Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas With Creamy Green Chile Sauce
Very Good 4.3/5
(35 ratings)

My favorite dish at a local Mexican restaurant is their Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce. I had to try and find a way to lower the fat and sodium so I could enjoy these without the guilt! I tweaked that recipe a bit to lower the sodium and fat, and came up with a winner! My husband and teen daughter gobble these up!
