Another recipe loved by EVERYONE, not just dieters or low-carbers! Goes together in minutes and keeps in refrigerator for 4-7 days.

Recipe Notes: If not using thickener, I recommend straining off most of the juices (save them to use when seasoning ground beef for taco salads or wraps?) You may use all canned tomatoes (2 cans total) with excellent results, if fresh tomatoes are not in season or available, or take this shortcut: use 2 cans Mexican-style canned tomatoes (I prefer Rotel™) and skip or adjust the lime juice and green chilies.

12 servings, each about 1/2 cup: 33 cal, 2 g fat (0 g sat.), 4 g carb (1 g fiber)
