Spicy Pumpkin, Chicken & Veggies!

Wow - this little dish came out to be so amazingly good!!  It's low in calories, fat & sodium, and super high in protein.  It's packed with fiber and tons of veggies!!  Try it NOW!  :)

1 zucchini - chopped
4 mushrooms - chopped
1/5 cup black beans
chicken breast - chopped - and cooked - I used 5.9oz
1/4 cup white kidney beans
2tbsp salsa (I used black bean & corn)
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Cream Cheese
seasoning you like - I used southwest mrs dash, garlic poweder, red pepper, and original mrs dash

Chicken should be cooked through - season it if you like (I used the regular mrs dash on this) - set aside.
Sautee zucchini & mushrooms for a few minutes.  Add in beans.  Sautee for another minute or two (over med-high heat).  Add in the seasonings as well. Then add in the canned pumpkin.  I also added about 1/8 cup water at this point too.  Mix in the cream cheese -- let it melt down a bit -- You should probably break it into pieces for easier blending.  Add in salsa -- make sure blended well and heated through.  Add chicken to dish at the end and blend in with veggie mix.   Dig in and ENJOY!!

  1. That does look good - I love using canned pumpkin in dishes. Love to stockpile it after Thanksgiving when it is on sale...

    Nice recipe, thanks!
