Here is the recipe for the muffins I made last night and brought to my office today. Everyone liked them (the can of cream cheese frosting I put with them on the serving tray might have helped)

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Makes 18-20 muffins (I made 24 smaller muffins)

1 box Spice Cake Mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling; pure pumpkin)
2 egg whites (I used 1/3 cup egg beaters)
1/3 cup water
2 Tbsp Pumpkin pie spice
Mix all together and put in foil liners. (I used paper and they were fine)

Bake 350 for 18-20 minutes.

If you are interested,the WW points value is less than 2 (41 points for 24 servings) without frosting.

"Roasted" Butternut Squash Soup
(from WW website -- 12 servings; 0 points/serving)

1/4 tsp table salt or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste

Instructions:
In a large stock pot, combine broth, squash, onion & apple
Cover and bring to a boil over hight heat
Uncover and reduce heat to low; gently simmer until squash is very tender, about 10 minutes
Puree soup using an immersion blender (I put in in my Magic Bullet in batches)

Chicken Tortilla Soup

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got the recipe from allrecipes.com and made a couple of change just based on what I had in the pantry. When it was done I topped with shredded mozzarella cheese and voila! It tastes just like one of our favorite restaurant's soup.

Ingredients:
1 pound shredded, cooked chicken I used pre-cooked diced chicken
1 (15 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed I used a can of Rotel diced tomatoes
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce I used small container taco sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups water
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf omitted
1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn used can corn
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
7 corn tortillas
vegetable oil

Directions:
1. Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into a slow cooker. Pour in water and chicken broth, and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Stir in corn and cilantro. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
3. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips, then spread on a baking sheet.
4. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, sprinkle tortilla strips over soup.

African Sweet Potato Stew
from Cooking Light via myrecipes.com

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
4 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 1/2 cups cooked small red beans
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
6 lime wedges
Preparation
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender.

Place onion mixture in a 5-quart electric slow cooker. Add sweet potato and next 10 ingredients (through chiles). Cover and cook on low 8 hours or until vegetables are tender.

Spoon 1 cup cooking liquid into a small bowl. Add peanut butter; stir well with a whisk. Stir peanut butter mixture into stew. Top with peanuts; serve with lime wedges.

Note: I make this as written. The peanuts and lime really make the dish!

Rose - That sounds incredible! I can't wait to try it. Are "small red beans" something other than kidney beans? Also, any idea of the WW points plus value on the recipe?

Thank you so much for posting this!

Our kroger actually sells beans called red beans. They are similar to kidney beans, but smaller. I have no idea about the points, but there is almost no fat--just the peanut butter and whatever peanuts you use. Oh and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. If you go to myrecipes.com and search for it, it might have nutritional value. Mike loves this soup--leftovers do not last very long!

Hi there! I have been making Jennio's Biggest Loser Chili (from last fall's season, I think). I added more beans and more tomatoes which brought it up to 10 cups of chili.

Jennie-O Biggest Loser Black Bean Turkey Chili

1 (20-ounce) package Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced (optional)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 (16-ounce) cans low-sodium whole tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
1 (16-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
8 ounce tomato sauce
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
4 tablespoons low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
In a large stockpot, combine turkey, onion, red pepper, garlic, jalapeño peppers, chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, marjoram, red pepper flakes and cinnamon.

Cook mixture over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink. Stir in tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Stir in beans and cilantro. Continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Serve topped with cheese.

Makes 6 servings.
