Corn and Green Chile Soup Serves 4; heaping 3/4 cup per serving
Ready in no time, this chunky and spicy soup requires very little cleanup.
16 ounces frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
12 ounces fat-free evaporated milk
2 ounces chopped green chiles, drained
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1/2 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped (optional)
3 medium green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons light tub margarine
1/4 cup shredded fat-free sharp Cheddar cheese
In a medium saucepan, stir together the corn, milk, green chiles, cumin, pepper, and cayenne. Bring just to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat.
Stir in the bell pepper, green onions, and margarine. Serve sprinkled with the Cheddar.
Cook’s Tip on Thawing Frozen Vegetables: To thaw frozen vegetables quickly, put them in a colander and run them under cold water until thawed. Shake off the excess water and drain well.

Filled with tons of great recipes (and an additional 50 from the last addition), this book includes categories such as Appetizers & Snacks, Seafood, Meats, Soups, Vegetarian Entrees, and even Desserts. All of the recipes include complete nutrient information and include calories, fat (including saturated, polyunsaturated, and monosaturated), cholesterol, sodium, carbs, protein, calcium, potassium, and dietary exchanges. The only things missing from this addition are a spiral binding (to help it lay flat) and full color photos of each recipe.
Some of my family's favorites include: Blackberry & Balsamic Chicken, Grilled Sesame Chicken, Cowboy Steak with Portobello Mushrooms, Slow Cooker Beef and Red Beans, Baked Pork Chops with Apple Dressing, Braised Lentil and Vegetable Medley, Strawberry Orange Sauce, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Flan Caramel, Potato Skin Nachos, and Vegetable Beef Soup.
I am voluntarily trying to reduce my sodium intake as my blood pressure has steadily crept up over the last few years, as has my weight! It isn't easy for me because I like salty foods but this cookbook has helped and will continue to help.
The appendix also has helpful advice on shopping, cooking , and making substitutions. I look forward to making more recipes fromt this book.
This cookbook is informative: telling how to avoid hidden sodium in foods, list of foods high in sodium and healthy cooking techniques, plus many great recipes. We especially liked the Chicken, Barley and Spinach Casserole, the Chicken Dijon and Scalloped Potatoes. I just wish it included some photo shots of the dishes!
