Thai Pork Pizza

My Thai Pork Pizza is a unique combination of my Homemade Hoisin Sauce, my Kalua Pork, fresh ginger, onions, garlic, cilantro and cabbage. These pizzas make up very quickly if you have the pizza dough in the freezer and the Kalua pork already made. You can also use cooked chicken in place of the pork. This recipe is for 4 but you could easily do it for more or less people. The secret ingredient in this recipe is the homemade hoisin sauce. Why do I have two pizza dough recipes listed? O...

Pork Carnitas – Instant Pot and Slow Cooker Directions

I just love Pork Carnitas! These are a more healthier version than traditional but they still taste great! They do take a bit of prep time and marinating time but they do cook fairly fast in the Instant Pot, so be sure and make a full batch (you can always freeze the leftovers). I usually buy a 15 lb pork shoulder from Costco and cut it into 3 (5 lb.) portions. I freeze two portions for later for more Instant Pot Pork Carnitas or for Kalua Pig. Also be sure and use fresh oranges and limes in ...

Scrumptious Turkey Sliders – Really!

To tell you the truth, I'm originally wasn't a big fan of ground turkey burgers.  However, when you add a bunch of spices to dress it up,  a thin slice of smoked gouda and top it off with my Jalapeño Cream, these Scrumptious Turkey Sliders are fabulous! I like them even better than traditional beef sliders. See what you think! 0 smart points per slider (3 pts if you pair it with a Slider Bun, 1/4 oz of gouda cheese and 1 t. Jalapeño cream). Serve it with a salad ...

Jalapeño Cream

This creamy delicious Jalapeño Cream is a great way to add some pizazz to any taco, sandwich or burger. Because it's made with light sour cream, it's lower in calories and points. And because it's made with jalapeños and garlic, it's full of zip. A little goes a long way.  If you use less than a tablespoon, then it doesn't even count as a smart point! Woo hoo! I use a tiny bit as a substitute for mayo on my turkey sliders. Yum! Be creative and discover your own uses for this wonder...

Healthy Black Bean and Lentil Chili

Cozy up to the fire on a cold rainy day with a cup of this delicious Instant Pot Lentil and Bean Chili! Simple, easy to make, yet filling.  I love to serve it with my homemade focaccia.  Because the chili is low in calories and points, you can serve it with a few pieces of luscious bread and a salad on the side and still stay within your point range.  1 Smart Point per 1 cup of chili. Freeze it into small portions for a quick, healthy meal later. Great for a party! ...
