Low Calorie Cajun Lime Stir Fry: Boost the Spices

There might only be a few ingredients in this low calorie Cajun lime stir fry but if you like spicy flavors feel free to throw in a pinch of chili powder or a fresh chopped chili pepper.

Add this when you add the Cajun seasoning and if you are using a fresh chili remember to wash your hands in soapy water after chopping it. I say that because last night I chopped a chili and forgot to, then scratched my eye – argh!
