Even though this is a low calorie recipe I thought I would post it because it's just amazing and a very large serving. Tweak to make lower carb, or not, but please give this a try. It's easy AND delicious (so says DF! )
4 oz extra lean ground chicken
1 Can Rotel Tomatoes and Green Chilies
1/4 Cup Goya Tomato Sauce or any sauce at 15 calories a 1/2 cup
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1/4 Cup sliced onions, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 Cup Juanita's Mexican Hominy or any other lower calorie hominy
Spices to taste: Chili powder, Cumin, Oregano, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Parsley, and any other Mexican type spice you like
1 tsp Granulated Sweetener (optional)
Spray Sauce Pan with cooking spray
Break Chicken into bite sized pieces
Brown Chicken, Garlic and Onions until chicken is no longer pink
Add Rotel and Hominy
Add Tomato Sauce
Add Sweetener, if using
Cook on low for 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally

Makes 1 LARGE Serving..... 236 calories, 28.45g protein, 20.40 net carbs
To make lower in calories omit Hominy.....176 calories, 26.45g protein, 16.40 net carbs
A man asked Gautama Buddha, "I want happiness." Buddha said, "First remove "I," that's Ego, then remove "want," that's Desire. See now you are left with only "Happiness.”
