I found this recipe in a book called, "Healthy Heart, Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook," on behalf of the Cleveland Clinic. I used my own beef broth from http://www.recipezaar.com/Shredded-Beef-for-French-Dips-Crock-Pot-155355 which probably made it less healthy, but my husband and I both liked it.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion, carrots, celery, jalapeno, and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, cilantro, corn and pepper.
  3. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the beans, spinach, and lemon juice. Cook just until the spinach wilts.
  5. Serve immediately. Top with reduced-fat cheddar cheese.
  6. Note: I like this without the corn.
