Taco Soup

This is a slightly altered recipe I got from my Young Women's President, Connie Berner, back in the day.
What You'll Need:
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 small onion, diced
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
2 medium or 1 large can kidney beans
1 can corn, undrained
1 envelope taco seasoning
Your Favorite Garnishes (i.e. cheese, tortilla chips, shredded lettuce, olives, etc....)

What To Do:
1.  Brown beef and onion together in pan.  Drain.
2.  Combine remaining ingredients in saucepan over medium heat.  Add meat/onion mixture.  Heath thoroughly.
3.  Serve warm.  Top with your favorite garnishes.

Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Not only are these yummy, they're low fat too! This is essentially the Pillsbury Quick Bread Pumpkin Mix recipe using low-fat ingredients.
What You'll Need:
1 (14 oz.) box Pillsbury Quick Bread Pumpkin Mix
1 c. fat free milk
1/3 c. applesauce
1/2 c. egg beaters

What To Do:
1.  Heat oven to 400*F. Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.
2.  Combine mix, milk, applesauce, and eggs in large bowl.  Stir 50 to 75 strokes until mix is blended.  Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full.
3.  Bake at 400*F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and the muffins spring back when touched.  Cool 2-3 minutes in pan.  

These muffins are only 45 calories and .5 grams of fat each!  Enjoy!
