In case you haven’t noticed, we love Mexican food.

But all those delicious carbs can wreak havoc on our waistlines — not to mention put us to sleep!

  • 4-ounce can diced green chiles
  • ½ cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup shredded cheese (sharp cheddar or Monterey Jack — chef’s choice!)
