To edit or delete your recipe, just go to your recipe box and click on the appropriate button next to your recipe. Once you make your corrections, click the button to submit your recipe.

How do I delete a recipe? I tried to put one in and didn't see the servings. I did a makeover and changed the servings, but now have 2 and one is really bad.

Okay. I did find that someone had entered Homemade Green Chili, so I used it for my tracker. Maybe I will go in and ask her how she made it and figured it. Thank you.

FANCYQTR - I am not able to find any listings for roasted green chilies, even within the USDA database, which is what a lot of our fresh food items come from. With that type of thing, you will have to pick the closest item that would be similar to it.

This still won't work for me since the unlisted ingredients you have to put in all the nutrition. I am trying to figure out what some of those are. I can find canned green chilies or pre-made green chili, but how to I put in a recipe that has "20 fresh roasted green chilies" and how do I enter the garlic, etc? How do I actually make it into a recipe like we used to be able to do?

Thanks for replying but I finally figured it out. It looked like nothing happened when I hit search, but I didn't know you had to click on the down arrow on the right side of the box before you would see the list. This doesn't seem to be a very user friendly way to do it, but now I know.

FANCYQTR - You can still manually enter a food item (there is a link for "enter a food not listed" -- is that what you are looking for?

JAMAR59 - Can you give me a couple examples of items you are looking for?

When I first started using it, I would put the ingredients in the ingredient list and was confused that nothing happened. I had to scroll up and enter them in a different place. I think having two places for ingredients causes confusion.

I haven't tried again. It used to be so you could just type in the ingredients like you would on a recipe card and the entire recipe would be in there. I have done that before and didn't have any problems with it, but now I can't get the recipe to go in at all. I don't like this having to look up ingredients on their list to enter and then you can't even get the entire recipe. I am hoping that somehow you can just enter it like before.

I can't find any ingredient that I search for. These are simple common ingredients that are in the food tracker list. Is it working for you now? I can't figure it out, so frustrated.

I am also having trouble trying to enter a recipe. How do you enter something that is not in the listing? If I enter this recipe so that I can figure the nutrients I could not get it off here to use to make the recipe like I used to be able to. But I can't enter "fresh roasted green chilies", pepper, etc. It is a homemade green chili that would not be as fatty as green chili that is purchased because I am using lean meat for it and I don't know how to figure canned green chili for 20 roasted chilies.

I just tried it and both items came up. Did you change any of the search criteria options by chance?

I am trying to enter and calculate a recipe, but it sows me no matches when I press start. I am entering normal stuff like kale and almond milk..... Can anyone help?
