These tasty bites are low in fat and calories and loaded in fiber and lean protein.
Share a meal with friends, and sample all of these miniature main dishes. Small-plate entrées, also known as tapas, are popular in restaurants right now. You can taste a variety of recipes at one time without overeating. Try our uniquely Southern choices such as Grits-Stuffed Greens and Polenta Rounds With Black-eyed Pea Topping. Ice-cream Crêpes topped with hot fudge are the perfect low-fat finale. Every recipe gives you the nutritional value for each small serving. These little nibbles were made for sharing, so pass the plate.
Don't be intimidated by these homemade pizzas. The convenience of deli chicken and store-bought crusts makes this recipe a cinch. Hot sauce, blue cheese dressing, and Colby-Monterey Jack cheese add the enticing flavor.
