I'm not particularly crazy about kidney beans.. any suggestions for a substitution??

I don't see any possible way this could serve 6... Each plate would consist of approximately 2.5 oz of meat with about a 1/4 cup rice with a spattering of vege's mixed in. Most lower calorie diets allow 4 oz of lean meat per serving. This does not appear to be a high calorie meal, but to lower it even more, try switching switch the veg oil to olive oil, change the kidney beans to a lentil or white bean and use pico de gallo instead of salsa. These substitute ingredients will help burn more fat and provide a metabolic boost.

The last time I divided 6 into 32 I got 5.33 oz. Rice doubles whens it cooks and most people don't eat like dogs. I would think the size stated on the corn should be 15 1/4 but maybe the recipe really only calls for a small amount.

Navy, butter, field peas with snaps.
