Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Get every ounce of flavor from the tomato sauce by rinsing any remaining sauce from the can with the 1/2 cup water.

Try using another type of bean instead of kidney or black beans. Black-eyed peas or pinto beans are a nice change.

Serve with a variety of toppings, such as shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese or chopped cilantro.
