Karen from LA was kind enough to share with us a few of her original creations. I'll post her other recipe in a few days. Thanks Karen!
"The first was inspired by a delicious dish from a restaurant in la called Mama's Hot Tamales. It is called Calabasitas which means little squashes. This is delicious served alone as a stew, or on tortillas as a filling for vegetarian tacos. Serve with sliced avocado. Enjoy. "
Sounds to me like a very tasty, very low calorie dinner!
seems like a 0 WW Point recipe to me!
2-3 lbs organic zucchini (on the small side, like a cigar), sliced
7 cloves garlic, minced
one onion (i diced and steamed it in the microwave for 4 minutes)
1 can organic corn
1 pkg frozen okra
1 bay leaf
1 28 oz can diced tomatos
1 14 oz can stewed tomatos, mexican style
1/2 t. cumin
1/2 t mexican oregano
2-4 chipotle peppers en adobe, minced (you can find these hot, smoked peppers in a can in the mexican section of the supermarket. don't touch them!!! use a fork and knife.)
Cook all ingredients together in crock pot on low setting for 4-5 hours.
