One of my goals for 2012 is to try at least one new recipe per week and blog about the recipe. Last night we had Chili-Corn Taco Pie from IMadeDinner.net. I find a lot of recipes on various food blogs, but this one is quickly becoming one of my favorites!
I ended up making a few modifications to the recipe, intentional and unintentional. I used regular long grain brown rice, versus instant. I cooked it earlier this afternoon while we were hanging out. I also accidentally left out the crushed red pepper. I am kinda glad that I left it out because I think it may have been a little too spicy with it.
As far as Weight Watchers goes, this recipe came in at 10 points plus values per serving. I cut four servings out of the 8"x8" pan. Next time I make this, I will use a slightly larger pan (6 servings) because the servings tonight were way too large. This also will reduce the points plus value to 7 per serving.
I think it is safe to say that we both liked this recipe. The hubs liked the corn mixed in and the "kick" from the chiles. If I were to change anything in the future, I would probably add in more diced/chopped veggies for just a little more umph. I like to sneak in extra veggies for color and texture. Just makes things more interesting.
