1/2 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro leaves, divided
1/2 avocado, chopped
In a large oven-proof skillet on medium-high, bring tomatoes, milk and broth to a boil, stirring occasionally. Stir in pasta, cover and reduce heat to medium, adjusting as needed to maintain a steady simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just barely al dente, 8 to 14 minutes.
Arrange oven rack in center position and preheat broiler to high. To skillet, add beans, corn, half of cheese and 5 tbsp cilantro. Stir until heated through, about 1 minute. Sprinkle remaining half of cheese over top and transfer to oven. Broil until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Divide among plates and sprinkle evenly with avocado and remaining 3 tbsp cilantro.
This creamy chowder uses fiber-rich sweet potatoes for a taste of fall. Here, we bump up the flavor even more by adding the shaved corn cobs to the simmering chowder to draw out flavor. Remove and discard cobs before serving.
This creamy carrot cashew sauce with roasted broccoli is a healthy substitute that will fill those cheesy potato cravings. Serve it like you would any traditional cheese sauce over a baked potato or as a sauce for potato gratin or whole-grain pasta, or try serving it fondue-style accompanied by your favorite veggies, crackers, pickles or whole-grain crusty bread for dipping.
Simple chicken breasts are dressed up with a made-from-scratch tomato- chile sauce and quick-sautéed black beans. We suggest making this recipe with our Yellow Rice (see recipe, right) alongside. If you don’t have queso fresco on hand for garnish, feta will work too.
