Southwestern Eggrolls: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Winner
Very Good 4.4/5
(70 ratings)

I love Chili's Southwestern Eggrolls. They have so much tasty stuff in them, but I hate the fact they are deep fried. I added more beans and corn and then put them in the broiler for crunch.
These are great made ahead of time and *frozen for a quick meal or a fun snack for the big game. I make a double batch so I can freeze some for later.

Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.0/5
(69 ratings)

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.

Seasoned Coconut-Oil Popcorn
Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

Gourmet coconut-oil popped corn seasoned with Adobo. An awesome solution when you find yourself seized by those late-night cravings for chips. Coconut oil is a healthy fat that promotes weight loss. Adobo seasoning is enhanced with cumin to offer an exotic, salty treat. Makes 4 generous three-cup servings.

OMG it's Tofu Queso (95 Calories 6 Carb) MUST TRY
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

I modified this from the Ellen Show (10-05-10). Made it for the Superbowl and put it out with the "other" queso. It ran out first. It's a great faux cheese for nachos. The uses are endless. You can add anything to it... Don't forget to add your chips to your tracker. ;-)

Herb Roasted Garlic
Very Good 4.5/5
(37 ratings)

Garlic is good for more than keeping away vampires. It's also quite good for you and full of flavor. Roasting garlic mellows its flavor and gives it a creamy texture.

Very Good 4.5/5

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.
