Football tonight. My dh is working a 12 hour day and getting off just in time for the big game. He is low- sodium, fat and sugar. So what snacks can I provide. Maybe something hearty since he will be hungry after work.

Wonderful for entertaining, this high volume hummus recipe is made with chipotle pepper, roasted red peppers, and sun dried tomatoes. The Middle-Eastern-inspired dip is a beautiful color and has a smoky, bright flavor. Serve with pita chips and fresh vegetables.

This clever recipe makes innovative use of prepared crescent roll dough. A cheesy chicken and chopped broccoli mixture fills the center.

You can try making turkey burger, sliders/syrian bread.Rice pilaf, low salt ,low fat.Veggie pockets, saute onions, and green, yellow, red peppers, mushrooms and stuff them in the { syrian } PITA bread. My husband is on the same diet, so he fills up on all this stuff, and it's REAL HEALTHY!

Spicy beef, onion, and beer chili recipe I picked up while in Alabama. Many people have asked me for the recipe so I'm posting it here. Enjoy! Adjust the amount of jalapenos and other spicy things to suit your taste.

Although I was born in Dothan, my DH is Scots-Irish raised in the heavily Catholic Slavic Village of Cleveland. The Irish and Browns are the only football teams for him. Me? I went to only two games during my college years (the Steve Spurrier/Emmit Smith Gators). I'm a NASCAR girl. Think he'll put out a spread for me Feb. 24 for the Daytona 500?

Okay, this is high sodium. Sorry. So leave out the tablespoon of salt, drain and rinse the canned beans, ETC, which should cut the sodium dramatically. This is a really good recipe if you can modify for the high sodium. I also used dry TVP (texturized vegetable protein), not the prepared crumbles. I don't know how much sodium they have but they probably contribute to the high sodium level. Or you could just use turkey, chicken, or low fat ground beef or bison if you are not vegetarian.

I have gotten pretty good at adjusting spices to make up cutting the salt. TY

Green Chile Chicken Stew

Submitted by: Georgette 
This stew will keep you warm and cozy on those cold winter days!! I got this recipe together after months of harassing my friends in New Mexico in search of the perfect green chile chicken stew. I make it at least once every month (I myself use a pressure cooker). Serve with warm flour tortillas. This recipe has a lot of chile peppers. Be sure to tone it down if you can't handle heat!

This is also good. I can't remember if it calls for canned broth or not, which would be high in sodium.

I drain off and save all the juices when I cook chicken, freeze it and use it to dialute low-sodium broth even more. That way I don't lose taste.
