Flavor-packed low-calorie dinners made with chiles.
Boost your metabolism with these zesty healthy chile recipes. From mild to fiery, research shows that a compound in chiles (capsaicin) helps trigger the body’s natural cooling system and revs up your metabolism. Chiles also add the perfect amount of heat to savory dishes like Mini Chile Relleno Casseroles and Thai Chicken Stir-Fry with Basil & Cashews.

 

 

 

Chile-Crusted Scallops with Cucumber Salad
A refreshing salad of cucumbers and roasted cashews makes a nice contrast to these smoky scallops. You can make the salad and scallop skewers up to 8 hours in advance; cover separately and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to grill……

 

 

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub
A quick and efficient way to cook a whole bird on the grill is to butterfly it. This method is so popular, especially in Southern California, that large chains have thrived selling chile-rubbed butterflied chicken to happy patrons.

300-Calorie Dinners
We gave these recipes a real workout: very satisfying food, very light.

Cooking Light
Full Flavor, No Guilt
We’re not interested in low-calorie eating for low-calorie’s sake. The first principle is taste. But with so much fresh produce around, it’s a pure pleasure to cook this way.

First up is our Tomato Tart.

A summery spectacular, but also a creamy, cheesy calorie and sat-fat bomb. Ours is meat-free and cream-free, but olives add satisfying richness…….

 

Chicken, Potato, and Leek Pie
Fast-food chicken pies can contain 800 calories per serving. We deploy full-flavored chicken thighs and smoky bacon to add depth. Store-bought pie crust keeps prep easy…..

 

Sweet and Spicy Shrimp with Rice Noodles
A healthy take on pad Thai, this dish stretches 12 ounces of shrimp to feed four and keeps the noodle portion in check. Sauce has some pumped-up kicks, comparable to many restaurant versions……
