Tonight I crossed one goal off this week’s list – I tried one new recipe.
These cut the calories by using low carb tortillas and stuffing them with chopped spinach, corn, and black beans. There’s also some cheese, but it’s not much.
As I prepped the food, I was skeptical. Spinach, in its Pop-eye canned form (or thawed), looks pretty gross to me. Spinach is just one of those veggies I haven’t really come around to. I recently tried the South Beach Diet spinach quiche cups and I just could not do it. What a waste of eggs.
But. BUT BUT BUT. I actually LIKED the spinach-stuffed egg rolls. I did make a few recipe modifications you should know about. For one, I didn’t have red chili peppers, so didn’t include them. I had a REALLY difficult time rolling up all the ingredients, so I ultimately put them in a muffin tin and cooked them that way. I also (confession alert) added some cheese to the final item (in anticipation of cheese overcoming the spinach). It didn’t need it, really. Finally, I added one tortilla to the recipe because there was too much stuff (even in muffin form) to fit inside.
