delicious dinner and a fun new snack!

Winter has me loving a good crockpot recipe and this has been my favorite to date.  I am a huge fan of skinnytaste and have enjoyed every recipe on her blog that I've tried.  I have irrational anxiety about not pairing a meal with either a cheese or a carb but I know with her recipes I will be satisified without those so without further ado I present Skinnytaste's "Santa Fe Chicken".  It tastes like you scooped out a burrito and only ate the contents, only and its less than 200 calories for a 9 oz serving! Yum!

I modified her recipe a bit as you can see below.  I added spinach (I cooked it the whole time and could barely see it when it was done, so I would add it about an hour before serving next time but if you have a picky eater this might work out well.) Have slightly less chicken and corn and a lot of hot sauce.  

Mine clocks in at 163 per serving, paired it with Tostitos Cantina chips (15 for 150) ~313 meal

 Just a random announcement for a kicking good snack bar.
The fudge dipped bars were only 10 calories more than their undipped counterparts so obviously the right choice was made.  I always feel fancy eating coconut so these bars tasted good and I could wear my tiara without irony while eating them so it was a win-win
