Tex Mex Tuna Casserole - 5 or 6 Points

Recipe By :Richard Simmons
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Casseroles Mexican

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups tuna in water, canned -- drained and flaked
2 cups lowfat cottage cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup canned chili peppers -- diced
2 tablespoons salsa
3 cups cooked noodles -- drained
12 saltine crackers -- crumbled
1/8 cup cashews, dry-roasted -- unsalted, chopped

PORTION PATROL: Remember the days when you used to eat nuts by
the handful? Well the good news is that you can still have your nuts and
eat them too, but only if you are on constant PORTION PATROL. 6 nuts
= 1 fat card. Don't forget it!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In large bowl, combine tuna, cottage cheese, sour cream, red onion,
chiles, salsa and noodles.

3. Turn into 2-quart casserole dish coated with non-stick spray.

4. Combine crackers and cashews and sprinkle over top.

5. Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Makes 8 servings.

NOTE: The amount of vegetable in this recipe works out to one
tablespoon per person, therefore you don't need to use a vegie card for
such a small amount. If you wanted to bring it up to 1 vegie card, you
could serve this with 1/3 cup of steamed vegetables per person.

* Recipe called for 12 unsalted, dry roasted cashews. MC is based on cup

Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze
From~ Hot Off the Grill with Bobby Flay

Serves: 4 (I figured 9 points for a 6 ounce, after cooking, piece of salmon.)

1 1/2 tbsp. light brown sugar
1 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. dijon style mustard
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. olive oil ( I used about half)
1 tsp. ground ginger
salt and pepper
4 salmon fillets (6 oz ea)

Melt the brown sugar, honey and butter in a small saute pan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and whick in the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and ginger. Let cool.
Preheat grill to medium heat. (If doing on charcoal grill, it suggests brushing salmon with vegetable oil) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the salmon skin side down on the grill. I always have them take the skin off right at the store.) Coat the flesh of the salmon fillets with the brown sugar mixture. Grill for 6-8 minutes to medium doneness, turning once after 5-6 minutes.

I made mine on the George Foreman Grill...

Cheesy Chicken with Tomatoes and Sunflower Seeds

1 Tablespoon raw sunflower seeds
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halved (about 4 ounces each)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
1 can (14 ½ ounces) ready-cut tomatoes (see note)
4 ounces of reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1. Preheat the oven to 350. Put the sunflower seeds in a pan and bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown; watch carefully, as the seeds burn easily.

2. Place the chicken in an 11”x7” baking dish. Sprinkle with the lemon juice, pepper and salt. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until chicken turns from translucent to opaque.

3. Spoon the tomatoes evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds and Monterey Jack evenly over the top. Place the dish under the broiler for about 1 minute, or just until the cheese is completely melted; do not brown.

Leftovers are good cold chopped up in salads or reheated and mixed in pasta or rice.

This easy chicken dish has a wonderful variety of tastes and textures. I like to serve it for dinner parties with rice pilaf.

These look really good but to help in searches it is better if you post them separately with the Subject as the recipe name. But they look good I'm adding them to my Mastercook program tonight.



Ps - of course if you don't want to post them like that then that's ok too.

01-05-2000, 10:29 PM
Kel--your right. Next time I will separate them.

I hope you enjoy them. Take care. Sherry

NOTE: I made this tonite and it is a large amount. So I recalculated it at 5 servings and came up with 7.5 points. Much better!

I placed "" around the word burrito because, unless you have a humungous tortilla, this stuff is not fitting inside of it. So it's best to have the tortilla on the side.

This recipe is a bit high in points, but it is worth it. You can probably cut it down some by using less avocado paste, maybe a 3 oz. fillet rather than 4 oz., and less of the chipotle cream. There is a lot of food here and one serving can almost be two meals.

Alan's Grilled Salmon "Burritos" w/Chipotle Cream

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup corn kernels -- fresh
1 cup cooked white rice
1 cup cooked black beans -- drained
1/2 cup sour cream, light
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 tablespoons chipotle chile canned in adobo -- finely chopped
2 medium avocados -- Haas, ripe
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 medium red onion -- thickly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds salmon -- 6-4 oz.
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

If you are using an outdoor grill, throw in some soaked hardwood chips on
the fire and close the lid so that the smoke flavors the fish as it cooks.

1. In a small saucepan of boiling water, cook the corn until tender, about 4
minutes; drain and let cool. Put the corn in a medium bowl and add the
rice and beans. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, yogurt and

2. Halve the avocados and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the lime juice
and mash until smooth. Season the mashed avocado with salt and pepper and
cover with plastic wrap.

3. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. Brush the onion slices with the 4
teaspoons of oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the onions over a
low fire for about 20 minutes, turning once, until nicely caramelized;
transfer to a plate.

4. Brush the grill or grill pan with rest of oil and season the fillets with
the cumin, coriander and salt and pepper. Put the fillets on the grill
and cover. Alternatively, arrange the fillets on the grill pan and cover
tightly. Grill over a low fire for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked
through. Transfer the fish to a plate.

5. Warm tortillas on the grill for a few seconds, just until pliable.
To serve: place red onions on a plate, top with corn/rice/bean mixture.
Place salmon on top of rice. Spread chipotle mixture on top, followed by
avocado paste. Serve with warm tortillas on the side.

I haven't fully converted this to the lowest WW pts yet, but here's my basic recipe for a tasty, fast and easy tuna pizza.

1 pita
1/4 -1/2 c. prepared tuna
grated cheese (to cover, to your tastes)

Spread the tuna over the pita, like you would sauce on a pizza, and sprinkle with as much cheese as you like.

I cook mine in my little toaster over on broil, but it could also be done in the oven that way.

04-23-2001, 02:37 PM
I read it, tried it and liked it:

1/2 c. celery
1/2 c. chopped tomato
1/2 c. tuna
1 tbsp. lite or f/f mayo or you can use f/f or reduced fat ranch dressing

Mix ingredients together and serve on a bed of lettuce or in a pita.

It is kind of on the tuna salad side but oh well.

There's always tuna melts:

1 can tuna
1/2 can 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup
2 tbsp. chopped onion (can sub dried onion)

Mix together and spread on a whole wheat bun halves (leave open faced on baking sheet) and bake for 7-10 minutes. Top with f/f cheese or reduced fat cheese and bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese melts.

Salmon, Tofu and Broccoli Patties

(I haven't made this yet, but this sounds soooo healthy. I love salmon and broccoli. This is a Dr. Weil recipe. Cheree)

Salmon, Tofu and Broccoli Patties

2 servings (2 patties each)

This is a light and easy dish for people who want to eat salmon, broccoli and tofu on principle but may not like cooking these items. The patties are actually baked in muffin pans, using pureed raw salmon, combined with silken tofu. This dish substitutes tofu for the traditional eggs and cream and adds finely chopped broccoli.

Start to finish: 20 minutes

6 ounces salmon fillet
1/2 cup organic silken tofu
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
1 teaspoon salt-free herb blend
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup broccoli, cooked and finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Chop the cooked broccoli finely in the food processor. Remove and set aside.

Cut the raw salmon into chunks and put it in the food processor with the tofu and seasonings. Puree until smooth.

Fold the chopped broccoli into the salmon mixture and divide between four lightly oiled muffin pan sections.

Cover the muffin pan with tinfoil, pressing it down around the edges of the pan. Put in the middle rack of the oven and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

Remove the pan and let the patties sit for a few minutes. Tip the pan over carefully, or guide the patties out with a knife. There will be a little liquid depending on the type of tofu used, but the patties should hold together.

Serve as a lunch or brunch dish with a side salad, or add a crisp stir fry of mushrooms and green vegetables to make it a dinner. These patties hold very well in the fridge for a few days and can be re-heated in the microwave at work. They also freeze very well, so if you like them, multiply the recipe by three, using about a pound of salmon and a full head of broccoli, and make a muffin pan full.
