Expert Tips

Heat a 14-ounce jar of meatless spaghetti sauce, and substitute for the bean and salsa topping. Sprinkle each serving with grated Parmesan cheese if you desire.

Pancakes aren't just for breakfast. A chili bean topping makes a hearty dinner meal. For dessert, top chilled pear halves with sour cream that has been sweetened with a little brown sugar.
