One day I decided to substitute a can of black beans for garbanzo beans while making hummus. t might actually be better than garbanzo bean hummus. I added the basil because I had some growing in my garden.

Great healthy option for a potluck. Without the olives it's completely fat free! You can add jalepenos for an extra kick. Add avacado or turkey chili to make it more filling for a meal (will add fat).

Kim's lowfat jalapeno poppers
Very Good 4.3/5
(58 ratings)

A tasty variation on the traditional popper. My hubby likes these for superbowl sunday. You can also vary the recipe by adding 2 -4 T fat free sharp cheddar shreds to the cream cheese mixture. Also you can use panko crumbs for a crispier coating. Make these at least once before serving to company, as it takes a knack to get them to come out nice looking.

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(195 ratings)

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert!

Burek is a Croatian / Serbian meat, cheese or vegetable pie made with flaky filo (also spelled "phyllo") dough.

There are myriad versions among Bulgarians, Bosnians, Macedonians and Greeks.

This one is made in a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan in the Armenian style (boreg) like baklava. The Jack and cottage cheese in this one definitely make it an Americanized version, but delicious nonetheless!

A slice of burek goes great with a glass of cold kefir.
