Chicken Tikka Masala (Maya's Makeover)
Very Good 4.5/5
(11 ratings)

DELICIOUS, easy, and now only 214 calories per serving!! This is my modification of a Chicken Tikka Masala recipe on this site. It sounded great, but I wanted to use less oil, didn't want to buy garam masala (when I had the ingredients for it on hand already), added a missing ingredient into the calorie count, and reduced the serving size. Still very yummy!

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.

Adapted from Kayln's Kitchen: http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2007/10/cottage-cheese-and-egg-breakfast.html

EDIT: Apologies to any one who read the "whole wheat flour" in the cooking instructions; I merely copied the directions from the aforementioned site and did not edit the instructions to list that you should use the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour. I assure you, when using this particular ingredient, this recipe is gluten free. Again, my apologies.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(74 ratings)

This is an adaptation of my favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you have the calories to spare, make some tortilla chips in the oven to eat with the soup and top with a bit of sour cream, cheese, avocado and anything else you like! It is very flavorful on it's own, though. Be sure to use high-quality enchilada sauce, as some brands can be greasy. I like to add other veggies in sometimes, such as carrots and squash.

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.
