I challenged Minnie with making my Impossible Taco Pie into a healthier/lighter version and she did! Zachary (9) went to her house and ate dinner with her last night so he could give his impression of hers versus mine. 🙂 Here’s what he said in response to my “So, which easy RoTel recipe did you like better” question:
Well, actually Momma, it is really hard to say. They aren’t the same, so I can’t say which is better. I REALLY, REALLY like yours, like a BUNCH. But, I really really liked her’s too! They are just not the same thing. It would be like choosing between hamburgers and french fries. I really like them both, but not one more than the other.
Ha, so there you go, from my little Diplomat 😉
From Minnie: Heart Smart Bisquick and EggBeaters work together to tone down the spicy taco flavoring in this dish, making it perfect for little kids and old people alike! 🙂 And the lean turkey, the Almond Milk, and the fat free cheese work together to make this dish lower in calories and as healthy as can be! Great taste and great for you – who could ask for more?
