Pollo Two Ways {a la Pinterest}

Lately I’ve been at a loss of what meals to prepare…trying to eat healthier, but keep the menu exciting.

I also haven’t been spending a lot of time on Pinterest, but remembered that I have oodles of recipes just waiting to be tested. I clicked around and was reminded of two which I made this weekend ~ both yummy and on the healthier side. Win. Win. At least in my book!

Crispy Grilled Southwest Burritos

 Suuuper yum….just used some PAM on my grill pan and they turned out crispy and perfect!

Tonight we tried Chicken Tamale Casserole from Cooking Light.

This, too, was delicious and different.

I served it on a little chopped romaine and garden tomato salad with this spiiiicy sauce as a dressing. If you can handle heat and you want a lo-cal dip, dressing or condiment, you need to make this. I’ve had the Pioneer Woman version {made with full mayo}, the reduced guilt version that I attempted {half mayo, half light sour cream and the juice of 2-3 limes} and Julie’s brilliant concoction {fat free greek yogurt and lime juice…and the chipotles in adobo, too, of course!}. I can tell you that I cannot tell the difference AT ALL in all three versions. Julie is a genius and did the math on the calorie count for us and all you need to know is go with GREEK!

This sauce can go on anything that you want to spice up ~ baked potatoes, sandwiches, eggs, tacos, burritos, salads, fresh veggies, nachos, fish, burgers, etc.

 Make some….it really is awesome at 7 calories a tablespoon.

Attempting some homemade peanut butter frozen yogurt this evening. I hope to be able to come back and share that recipe with you, too!

Hope you had a super summery weekend!
