Re: Potato Toppings Request

Hi Felicia,
	My favorite potato topping (and topping for everything) is a Mexican
mixture I have made.  It is really quick and easy.  I don't know what to
call it, so would appreciate any suggestions for a name.  

1 pkg chopped spinach (frozen)
1 red bell pepper chopped
1-2 cups frozen corn (I use Green Giant Extra Sweet Niblets)
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
8 oz taco sauce (hotness to preference, I use medium)
1 tsp chili powder
cumin, coriander, cilantro to taste

(Sometimes I substitute 1 can black beans for the spinach, and I have also
put mushrooms in it.  I think most anything would work - like zucchini.  

Put the spinach in the microwave in the box and nuke for 4 minutes.  Then
take out and drain thoroughly.  Be careful not to burn your fingers.
Sautee the onions and garlic in water, then add the peppers, corn and
spinach, sauce, and seasonings.  Simmer until everything is soft, but still

I use this on baked potatoes with my tofu (sour) cream, also in whole wheat
tortillas, and just as a dip with fat free chips sometimes.  


PS:  	I also found a tofu spinach and carrot sandwich filling recipe on the
internet the other day - will try to look it up and post it later.  it
would be great on baked potatoes.  I think it was in the Simply Soy
cookbook under the www.soyfoods.com address.
