Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

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.

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.

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing.

COOKING WITH CAITLIN'S Gazpacho
Very Good 4.2/5
(13 ratings)

I think that gazpacho is quite the refreshing soup option--especially in the summer. It goes well with a simple sandwich as well as something a little fancier and off the grill. Not only that, but it is actually pretty healthy for you as well--gazpacho is made up of all kinds of different veggies.
