Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Taco Salad

Part of my birthday prezzie from my friend, Susan B, was the Perfect Tortilla™ Pans.

I'm going to say this comes out to @3 PointsPlus™ only because I didn't measure any of the ingredients. I think 3P+ is erring on the high side......works for me!
Makes 1 Serving
1 Serving = a guestimated 3 PointsPlus™
1 small whole wheat tortilla
Crumbles (or lean ground beef or turkey)
Chopped red bell pepper
1/2 roma tomato, chopped
Few slices of cucumbers, cut up
Lettuce, shredded
Shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
Black bean & corn salsa
Salsa verde
Bake the tortilla in your cute little pan (or turn a muffin tin upside down) for 8ish minutes at 400º (up to 10 minutes if you want it crunchier).  Cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes and then remove from the pan.  You can keep these warm or let them cool completely before serving.

Put some crumbles in the bottom of the shell.
Add some black bean & corn salsa.
Add some red bell bepper, cucumber & tomato.
Add some lettuce.

Add a bit more black bean & corn salsa as well as some salsa verde.
Top with some shredded fat-free cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you want).....
......and ENJOY!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
