Healthy Jalapeño Adobo Turkey Sliders
These Healthy Jalapeño Adobo Turkey Sliders are a variation of my Scrumptious Turkey Sliders and use my Homemade Chipotle seasoning. They are on the spicy side but not too hot. (You can always adjust the heat by using less chipotle seasoning, jalapeños and chipotle peppers). Serve with my Slider Bun, a dollop of my Jalapeño Cream and a nice salad on the side. If you have the chipotle turkey sliders and buns in the freezer, you can reheat them in a jiffy for a quick lunch or dinner. ...

Roasted Tomatillo Green Salsa
Fresh roasted tomatillo salsa is simply the best! I've been making this tomatillo salsa recipe for years. It's super easy, very few ingredients and takes little time. This recipe is also in one of my previous cookbooks, Entertaining with Amy (definitely not a smart point friendly cookbook and thus the reason I ended up joining Weight Watchers). For a lower carb option serve with fresh jicama chips!

Homemade Spicy Chicken Sausage
Updated October 17, 2019; originally published on October 26, 2017
This healthy Homemade Spicy Chicken Sausage is a big hit at my house. My kids will even fry it up on their own because they love it so much. It's great over nachos, delicata squash, rice, and zucchini noodles. It also makes a fast appetizer in my Lasagna Appetizers. This recipe is pretty spicy, so if you don't like spice, then dial it down a bit by using less of the spicy seasonings.
Cheaper than buying it in the ...
