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.
