Expert Tips

  • * To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or, spread almonds in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on HIGH for 4 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
  • White pepper is just black pepper that has been allowed to ripen slightly longer and then has been hulled. Its flavor is milder than that of the black variety.
  • To lower fat by 3 grams per serving in this recipe, substitute nonfat sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt for the sour cream.
