Finally! Food with Southwest Flair for Diabetics--and Their Families! Dear Friends, After being diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago, I decided to follow up my bestselling book Fat Free and Ultra Lowfat Recipes by writing a cookbook of tasty dishes for diabetics. There was such a terrific response from folks around the country to Real Food for People with Diabetes that I decided it was time we had our own cookbook of America's favorite ethnic food, Mexican and Southwestern cooking. As a diabetic, I still want all the old favorites and comfort foods I grew up with instead of the boring and bland choices normally available. And when it comes to Mexican food, I love the spicy flavors and zest of the real thing. So, as I've done before, I developed recipes for authentic-tasting dishes that are lowfat and low-calorie--delicious and healthful. Now, you too can savor enchiladas, tamales, and burritos filled with cheese, sour cream, refried beans, and chunky salsa and still maintain a safe, healthy, diabetic diet. Each quick, hassle-free recipe includes a nutritional breakdown and lists the diabetic exchanges to take the work out of cooking for a diabetic lifestyle. To your good health and enjoyment, Doris With this collection of more than 150 enticing soups, salads, side dishes, entrées, and desserts you will find it easy to limit fat without sacrificing flavor. Enjoy "real Mexican foods" such as: Fiesta Tortilla Corn Chowder · Chicken Taco Salad · Cheesy Nachos · Green Chili Quesadillas · Meaty Zesty Chili · Southwest Grilled Steaks · Veggie Fajitas · Blackened Chicken Enchiladas · Skillet Southwest Potatoes · Jalapeño Corn Bread with Cheese · Hot Cinnamon Fruit Sauce · Chocolate Pancakes · And many more!
