Linguine with Spicy Shrimp
Very Good 4.4/5
(192 ratings)

We're serious about the spice in this recipe. Whole-grain pasta and tender shrimp pair perfectly with a luxuriously rich, piquant sauce.

This is the healthiest I could get this--good fiber from the WW elbows though. There is no macaroni and Cheese in France, so this is what I make when I have a taste for it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew
Very Good 4.7/5
(1153 ratings)

I love this stew! It is so easy and leaves me feeling satisfied. I use 3/4 cup as a serving. If it is too spicy for you, substitute a can of diced tomatoes for one of the diced tomatoes w/chilies.

yummy! When adding dairy to a dish that gets further heating, it's best to whisk it in slowly near the end of cooking. Once the milk or cream is added slowly increase the heat and continue whisking. Don't bring it to a total boil. Or allow the tomatoes to base to cool and then add the cream. Reheat the mixture slowly.

If it does curdle, you can save it with this tip: Whisk in a mixture of 1 T. cornstarch and 1 T. water - cold. Continue heating until the mixture thickens.

The acid from the tomatoes (or any other acid in the recipe) or the amount of salt could cause the mixture to curdle. You can prevent this by sprinkling on baking soda onto the tomatoes so it balances the acidity before you add the cream. Again, take care when heating the mixture: Heat it slowly.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(178 ratings)

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away.
