I love Mexican food too!

One thing I've done to all my Mex dishes is replace refried beans with smashed pinto beans. It made a big difference in how much I ate to feel full! And it still tastes great!

Are you investing your time or just spending it?

I didn't post it. We had so many different amounts of each item depending on our goal =D

I used whole wheat tortilla chips (for the boys and a whole wheat tortilla for myself), the topping was pinto beans, grilled chicken and canned sweet corn all seasoned with Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle. For my son I used extra lean ground beef and for my fiance he mixed the grilled chicken AND lean ground beef. I stuck to chicken. Then we used Cabot's 75% reduced fat cheddar cheese, Smart Balance sour cream and some salsa. It sounds too simple to be very delicious but wow!!! I was incredibly pleased.

We had nachos and my fiance was short on his fat goal by 6 g and he BARELY made his low calorie range.

I was 4 g short of my low end fat goal AND I barely made my low end calorie range.

I'm still excited!!! AND they were yummy!

I'm really great about following a recipe. I'm not so good (usually) when it comes to creating them from scratch BUT

tonight I decided to make a recipe completely from my own creation that would serve my 350 cal per meal plan, my fiances 850 cal per meal plan and my kiddos need to eat healthy but as much as he wants plan.

I did it!! It was VERY yummy. All 3 of us liked it!!

I'm still excited about the success!!

I just had to share where I knew people might appreciate how difficult it can be.

Thank you for letting me share!!!
