Recipe by Mindi Bunch

This is another great recipe I found in the New Dieter's Cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens. We had this for supper last night and enjoyed it very much. I substituted lean ground beef for the steak and it tasted wonderful. We like to garnish this with a dallop of light sour cream and some pico de gallo. If you like a little kick, you might try some Tobasco sauce like I do.
