I have made this recipe with a couple variations. For the chocolate chips, I have also used mini cherry-flavored chips and they were equally as delicious. For the dried cranberries, you can substitute raisins.
If you use full fat condensed milk, fat content will be 6.8 grams per bar; fat free condensed milk is 4.9 grams per bar. I recommend using the LOW fat version, as I used in this recipe, because they hold together a little better. I have made it with fat free as well and they were great but a little more apt to fall apart.
Sweet sauteed onions and a rich mixture of spices create a complex, flavorful base for this extraordinary vegetarian stew.
This recipe is VERY low fat and low sodium, but it is full of flavor! My husband added a pinch of salt to his but I thought it was fine without. It is perfect by itself, or excellent on top of brown rice!
Adapted from the "Beef: It's what's for dinner" website. I lowered the sodium, fat, calories per serving and added a few seasonings and beans. The beans make is very filling without adding calories or fat! Super quick and easy to make and really stretches out a pound of ground beef!
This recipe was on PBS "Everyday Food". The original recipe can be found here
I changed the recipe because I didn't want to fry the chickpeas (save a little fat!). I enjoyed it without frying them, but I thought I'd include the original list in case anyone wants to try it that way, too. Salt and pepper are NOT included in in nutritional information because I choose not to use salt.

Just to clarify for the questions below:
First, YES the cream cheese is figured into the totals...if you use FULL FAT cream cheese, the fat content will be considerably higher. But low fat cream cheese really takes the fat down.
Second, I haven't ever tried it with regular Italian dressing...let me know how it turns out!
Third, I HIGHLY recommend using the low setting for cooking...it allows the juices from the chicken to really seep into the dressing.
I love to use this recipe for an afternoon or evening snack...seems to satisfy me enough that I don't eat any junk food!
The great thing about this recipe is that you can play around with the seasonings a bit. We love cumin, so we tend to use a bunch. The flavor won't suffer if you leave a little out! It's kind of a base recipe that you can add to or take from...ENJOY!
Spiced black beans, shredded chicken and vegetables used to fill tacos, burritos or whatever else you would like it in!
