The same portion size from a restaurant can easily be 600 calories! Make the switch from restaurant to homemade, save 224 calories or enough for a 23 pound weight loss in a year. Your choice, order from a drive-thru or homemade.
Look for "fat free" refried beans in your grocery story or make your own. Mash up a can of pinto beans, add seasonings and chicken broth for the right consistency.

Sprinkle with a little grated cheese and chopped green onions. Try it.
