I think I have officially decided what my number one favorite low-fat-meal-that-tastes-too-good-to-be-a-low-fat meal is.
- Chicken fajitas (I leave off the tortilla entirely and don’t miss it at all)
- Almost-Chili’s Black Beans (to which I add a few spoonfuls of the next item)
- Pico de Gallo (the best I’ve ever had…I leave out the cilantro because I don’t like it)
- Homemade guacamole
- Sweet corn cake (Okay, this part isn’t low-fat, but I save it till the end and just have a tiny bit.)
Yum! I think I could eat this every day. The guacamole is simple, but I don’t have an exact recipe for it. I just mash the avocado and add hot sauce, garlic, salt, cumin, garlic salt, and lime juice until it tastes right. Then, I add about a tablespoon of sour cream.
The entire meal, with a serving of light sour cream was only 400 calories and 12 fat grams (half of which came from the guacamole, so it was “good” fat). You can’t beat that with a stick.
