Pie, Pie, Me Oh My!

Ok, so I have been craving sweets like a crazy woman and wanted something to go with a wonderful batch of Chili-Lime Black Bean Soup.  How wonderful a warm slice of apple pie would be I thought.  So, here is my take on that warm apple pie….

Just dice up some apples and toss them with some cinnamon and splenda and just a touch of flour to thicken.  On a parchment paper lined baking sheet place one WonTon Wrapper, put a spoon of apple filling in the middle and with a little water seal another wrapper on top.  Bake 10 minutes or so on 350 degrees and you end up with crispy little pockets of goodness that really satisfy my craving for sweet and pie!  Only 3 Smartpoints for TWO if you are counting.  Enjoy!

      Ok Melisa, here it is, Chili-Lime Black Bean Soup:
      By the way, we had it left over as a dip with home-made crackers…another discovery of mine! It is so thick it works great as a dip too!

      1 Tbsp olive oil, extra-virgin
      1 large uncooked onion(s), chopped
      1 medium jalapeño pepper(s), seeded, minced
      1 Tbsp minced garlic
      1 tsp kosher salt
      1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
      1/2 tsp ground cumin
      1 tsp chili powder, ancho variety
      1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
      60 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained
      2 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
      2 Tbsp fresh lime juice, (Juice of 1 lime)
      3 Tbsp plain low fat Greek yogurt
      1/4 cup(s) cilantro, chopped
      1/4 cup(s) uncooked scallion(s), chopped
      Heat oil in a large nonstick soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeno, garlic and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add oregano, cumin, chili powder and cayenne; stir and cook 1 minute. Add beans and broth to pot; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for flavors to blend, about 10 minutes; stir in lime juice.

      Remove from heat and puree soup in pot using an immersion blender (or puree in a regular blender in batches). When serving, stir 1/2 tablespoon yogurt into each bowl and garnish with cilantro and scallions. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
