Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Mexican Corn Soup
Very Good 4.4/5
(18 ratings)

Corn shares the spotlight with chicken in this well-seasoned soup. Blending part of the corn with the broth is a really simple and easy way to thicken up the soup and boost the flavor.

Very Low Calorie & absolutely Delicious !!!
