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.

150-Calorie Chocolate Mousse
Good 3.4/5
(37 ratings)

When I want chocolate mousse, only the real deal will do. This version is low in fat, but it's still creamy and rich. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Very Good 4.1/5
(37 ratings)

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!

This is the original, tried and true recipe. Many alterations could be made to this soup, and it would be just as healthy and delicious. Feel free to play around with it. Freezer friendly too!!!

Turkey Garlic & Herb Cheese Burger
Very Good 4.5/5
(19 ratings)

This burger gives you the satisfaction of having your "mayo" and cheese by using a wedge of the Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb spread on the 100% Whole Wheat Arnold Select Sandwhich Thins. The thick slice of tomato, crunchy lettuce, protein from the burger and the whole grains in the bun will fill your belly and put a smile on your face.

The protein from the black beans can make this side dish a main meal. You can also add diced chicken for a little extra protein punch!!!

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.
