Pigs in a Poncho
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min./batch
Like another reviewer said, the fat, calorie and sodium content in just one of these is through the roof and a little on a ridiculous side and that's BEFORE adding the sour cream. However, there's a way to make these that are quite tasty and a little less scary, if you're health-conscious like I am. So my star rating is for the 'lightened up' version without downgrading the original. First, use hot dogs that have fewer calories and less fat. Secondly, use fat-free refried beans. Go EASY on the cheese and/or use reduced fat 4-cheese Mexican. And instead of deep-frying them, brush them lightly with your favorite oil and bake them in the oven until crunchy and brown. They can also be browned on a stovetop griddle or in a pan. They're super good without feeling too guilty for eating them.
No way would I feed my kids over 700 calories and basically 1400 mg of sodium in 1 meal. Get real, Taste of Home. Is anyone approving these recipes before publishing. Besides my kids wouldn't be satisfied with just one.
I left out the olives and my boys loved these for a quick lunch!
