Tex Mex WW Style.....

In honor of Cinco de Mayo which is Sunday I made a yummy Tex Mex feast for Matt and I last night! I am sure you won't be shocked when I tell you I got this from my favorite site SkinnyTaste! It was so good I had a hard time keeping with my smaller portion!
This looks so gourmet and it was really easy .........

Fiesta Lime Rice you can see the original recipe with nutritional facts  HERE!
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked long grain rice ( TIP! I used brown rice where you heat the packet in the microwave....easy peasy)
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and heated
  • 3/4 cup cooked corn, heated
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 large scallion, diced fine
  • 2-4 tbsp chopped cilantro 
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • salt to taste
  • TIP! I also added avocado and 1 tomatillo
In a large bowl, combine hot rice, heated corn, heated beans, tomato, scallion, cilantro, lime juice and salt if needed. Toss and serve

Salsa Verde Chicken Tostadas
I loved that this recipe called for a slow cooker those are the best kind! To see the recipe for the Salsa Verde chicken and the tostada recipe on SkinnyTaste click HERE!
 Last night I made Matt and I's favorite dessert recipe..... WW cupcakes which are only 2points including icing!!!!!
Cake
1 Box cake mix- I used French Vanilla
1 Can Sprite Zero
I added about 2 tablespoons of colored sprinkles before baking for a fiesta feel!
Combine the two ingredients and then bake at 350' for 18-20minutes!

Icing
1 tub of Fat Free Cool Whip
1/2 package of Vanilla pudding mix!
Literally all you do is mix the two and ice! I don't ice them until we eat one! I keep the tub of icing in the fridge so they don't get soggy!
I hope you all try these recipes.....you won't regret it!
