This recipe came from when I was in Weight Watchers during the mid-1990's. The cilantro is the debate at my house as my DH hates it and I love it!
- 2 cups small broccoli florets
- 1 1⁄2 cups skim milk
- 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour, plus
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
- 1⁄4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup green chili, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
