I love to cook--as many of you know--tonight is chicken fajitas (WW recipe using my own marinade) and this salsa with WOW tortilla chips

I am not gonna figure points on this as its all free ingredients except the tomatoes and onion which at worst calcs to 1/2 per cup

1 can diced tomatoes (The large ones)
1/2 bunch Cilantro
1 Onion
1 teaspoon of minced garlic (you can buy or do yourself--I use garlic powder too)
1 Jalapeno --more (TASTE FIRST) before adding any more
2 teaspoons of hot sauce
Salt--to taste
Pepper--to taste
Combine all ingredients. This is a quick and excellent salsa thats chunky because we are using diced tomatoes--its awesome--i bring it to every party and its very very good for you



Hey! Sorry I never got back to everyone! They actually turned out pretty good. I found the wrappers in the salad section of my grocery store. They have a bunch of those packaged salads, dressings, tofu, egg roll wrappers, etc. in that section.

Anyhow, I mixed cabbage, chopped broccoli, carrots, onions, and chicken together. I steamed that for about 5 min before putting it in the egg roll wrappers. I then filled them up according to the directions on the package. Once I had them rolled, I refrigerated them over night. I wouldn't suggest doing that unless you really are in a time crunch, because the wrappers got pretty sticky. Anyhow, I then quickly fried them in a pan with non-fat cooking spray just to brown them up. I then sprayed them and put them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 min, flipping once. They were very tasty--and the only points were the wrappers and the chicken. I think I calculated them to be 1.5 pts each, plus I used some sweet and sour sauce which had points.
I have some frozen, so hopefully, they won't get as sticky as the refrigerated ones!
Happy Losing,
Amy :)

I love this, only I use a light sprinkle of "Bar-B-Que" seasoning. It is
sold with the spices, and really zings up the oven fries!
:my mom makes them with TexJoy Steak Seasoning

Cut a potato in thin slices (or wedges or whatever you like). Spray a
cookie sheet with Pam and place the potato slices on it. Sprinkle with
