    Capping fiber at 4 shoots this up to 7. Not bad but just warning. ------------------ - Jess 232.4/192.4/188/130-155 http://www.geocities.com/weigh2gone

    Nacho Chicken

    I find any canned meat (chicken, tuna, salmon, etc) in the same section of the store here. In Food Lion it's on the top shelf. Tuna is eye level. Salmon, sardines ... left of tuna, below chicken. I think. good luck
  3. I'm sure there are as many taco soup recipes out there as ... Well, I'm sure there are a lot. I did the one on dotti's site, sort of. I used that recipes crumbles stuff instead of meat. I also used only one can of pinto beans and a big can of crushed tomatoes (they're cheaper) and a can of dice tomatoes with chile (pretty darn cheap too). The taco mix and ranch dressing mix were used. Really cheap meal (pointwise and pocketwise). I am guessing a cup for about a smidge less than 1 point. It's spicy though. I have to eat it with lite wheat bread ------------------ - Jess 232.4/193.4/188/130-155

Place marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Place on grill over medium-hot coals.

Cook the rest of the ingredients a few minutes. Combine in a processor blender until creamy. Combine tofu mixture. mushrooms and onions. Put in the bottom of an 9" pie shell. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until filling is set in the middle. Makes 8 servings. NOTE: Make your own low fat pie crust or use a premade low fat pie crust, because the regular pie crust adds 3.5 points per serving so 22 points for the whole crust. Also I didn't have the nutritional yeast info but I'm sure it woun't effect the points much.
