Cliff's Calico Skillet
Heart Smart p.184
If your goal is to get your family to eat lots more fiber, here's a smart way to do it in no time at all! It's ready so quickly, you'll probably serve this skillet supper often--which I know will make Cliff very proud, since he inspired it.
8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
10 ounces (one 16-ounce can) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups (one 16 ounce can) cut green beans, rinsed and drained
1 (10 3/4oz) can Healthy Request Tomato Soup
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat and onion. Stir in corn, great northern beans, green beans, and tomato soup. Add taco seasoning, parsley flakes, and black pepper. Mix well to combine. Lower heat and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Hint: Thaw corn by placing in a colander and rinsing under hot water for one minute.
