Metabolism-Boosting Dinners

Flavor-packed low-calorie dinners made with chiles.
Boost your metabolism with these zesty healthy chile recipes. From mild to fiery, research shows that a compound in chiles (capsaicin) helps trigger the body’s natural cooling system and revs up your metabolism.

Serve with lime wedges and fresh salsa......

This recipe originally appeared on Emeril Green, Emeril Lagasse’s cooking show on Planet Green. Lagasse has his own brand of frozen wild American shrimp, which meet strict U.S. environmental standards. The shrimp taste sweet and “they just smell like the sea,” according to Emeril. Serve this with tostones (fried plantain chips) or tortilla chips. (Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.)......
