Baked Salmon

Extremely simple, very flavorful recipe. Can also substitute salmon for chicken.

Quinoa & Black Beans

Delicious salad topper!

Chicken & Black Bean Enchiladas

Great way to use up leftover roasted chicken!

Peanuty Pancakes

Used a base pancake recipe to create a kid-friendly, delicious peanut butter flavored pancake.

Fresh and Healthy Guacamole

My husband hates guacamole but he LOVES my guacamole! This is a very fresh tasting, light guacamole that is great served with your favorite chips, crackers, pita or even fresh veggies. It's also awesome in tacos or atop taco salad.

Turkey & Black Bean Burgers

Filling and light alternative to a burger!

Mexican Lasagna

Thrown together to use leftover Crock Pot Taco Meat (recipe by MRSBETH 99)

Mexican Layer Dip

This dip is requested regularly by friends, we bring it to every event/potluck/etc. It originated with full fat ingredients but really doesn't lose much by substituting lower fat products. I personally don't like fat free dairy products but you could use fat free cheese and sour cream, if you prefer.

Pulled Pork Shephard's Pie

Great way to use leftover pulled pork - I adapted it using SLCOLMAN's Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Roast recipe. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta

Crock Pot Chili

This is chili using the trimmings from a whole beef tenderloin that has been trimmed up for filets. It's about 1 - 1 1/2 lbs of meat (I trim off the majority of the fat but do leave some on for flavor).

Creamy Lightened Up Potato Salad

My mom's potato salad, lighted up using greek yogurt and olive oil mayo instead of the full-fat stuff.

Potato Ham Skillet

From Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook - we made this tonight and it was really tasty and filling. The recipe called for 3 medium peeled potatoes but all I had was small red potatoes, so I used 6. I left the skin on them, since the red potatoes have a pretty thin skin. It was delicious - my kids gobbled it up!
