Amy's makes Tex-Mex healthy

Gotta try it

        Who says Tex-Mex has to be high fat and full of meat and cheese?

        Not Amy's, the Petaluma, Calif., company that specializes in organic and meatless frozen entrees, including its healthy version of Mexican Tamale Pie. This single serving is made with creamy pinto beans, crunchy yellow corn and crisp bits of zucchini, smothered in a tangy tomato sauce and topped with delicate corn meal polenta.

        OK, this tamale pie could use a little more spice and heat. But it's meatless, wheatless, dairy-free, contains only 3 grams of fat and tastes too good to be healthy and Tex-Mex.

        Amy's products are available in the freezer case at Kroger, Wild Oats and other groceries. $2.49 per 8-ounce pie.
