A trio of peppers livens up this comforting side dish. "I've had this recipe for many years," says Virginia Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida. "I lightened it up from the original by using reduced-fat sour cream and milk, plus some egg substitute. It tastes just as good...but it's much better for us!"
When I tried out these roasted potato wedges on my family, it was love at first taste. Since I generally have the onion soup mix and seasonings on hand, the recipe couldn't be easier. Spice amounts can be altered to your liking.
Two types of beans, jalapeno pepper and a little liquid smoke help these beans steal the show at potlucks and other get-togethers. "Whether served with a summer barbecue or winter ham dinner, this recipe makes an ideal side dish," promises Erin Anderson of Far Hills, New Jersey.
I substituted reduced-sodium chicken broth for the rich chicken stock that was originally called for in this recipe. It's a great side dish to serve with grilled fish or chicken for a tasty low-fat meal.
