Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites


Healthy, Delicious - Low in Calories

Yummy and super ultra low in calories. This low calorie recipe lives up to the old adage of eating one's way to thinness.

Ingredients for this low calorie recipe:

1 small can of black beans
1 small can of any variety of kidney beans
1 small can of diced tomatoes
1 package of taco seasoning

Combine all the ingredients and cook until bubbly. Add crumbled corn chips and cheese to your Mexican Stew if desired.

Raging Cajun Mac 'n Cheese With Black Beans & Sausage

Get a little Diet Hostile with our delicious twist on mac 'n cheese. Take note that you'll soon turn into a spoonful of honey once you experience this deliciously delicious dish.

One key in keeping calories and fat low is using a low calorie/low fat sausage. We love Bistro Sensation's Apple & Gouda Cheese Chicken Sausage which contain a scant 130 calories per link. You'll need two links for this recipe. Slice into thin strips and cook on the stove top using cooking spray if needed until golden brown on both sides.

Remove and add to 3 cups of cooked bowtie pasta plus 1/2 jar of queso dip (found in the chip section which contains 40 calories per serving). Finally, add 1 can of drained and rinsed black beans. Stir until well incorporated.

This low calorie recipe contains about 1,600 calories and serves 4 generously for about 400 calories per serving. Sun-ripened tomatoes also go exceptionally well with this recipe, as does diced onions.

Hot Dawgs With Black Beans & Cheese, a Low Calorie Recipe

Enjoy these low calorie dawgs with our low calorie Black Bean Chili recipe, or a smear of mustard. But whether you're a mustard sort of man or heavy on the ketchup, defeat those unwanted pounds with a bound - the delicious way with this low calorie recipe.

We have two different preparation methods:

#1 - Roast franks on stove top using cooking spray if necessary. Place into warm hot dog bun. Top with drained black beans that have been mixed with 40 calories worth of queso OR shredded cheese. Add other hotdog fixings if desired, or top with Black Bean Chili for a robust treat.

#2 - Begin by opting for light franks when grocery shopping. Simply slice franks and cook on the stove top until golden brown.

Add 1/2 jar of queso (found in the chip section and contains 40 calories per serving) plus 1 can of drained and rinsed black beans.

Serve on top of prepared rice. Delicious and who needs mustard or buns?
