Green Chili, Mexican Style

Total Time

This came from a Weight Watchers cookbook. Very tasty, with a nice "kick" to it. I'm sure it could easily be done on the stovetop, just cook until the beef is fall-apart tender. I sometimes have a difficult time finding the Mexican tomatoes so have also used diced ones with green chiles (and added more garlic). Serve with sour cream and a nice crusty bread (or flour tortillas). A 1 cup serving is 3 WW points. Update 2/12/2010: This won 2nd place (a fraction of a point away from 1st) today at a chili cook-off at work :)

Calling this a chili is somewhat of a misnomer as this is very watery and more like a brothy soup. However, it is delicious. I used extra hot Rotel so it had a great kick and topped with non fat sour cream and cheese. Equally as good with tortillas or chips. Next time will cut the meat a little smaller too. I didn't use the chilil oil as I thought it was great without it.

This was very easy and authentic tasting, the fact that it is from weight watchers is just another bonus!

This was very good. I did not add the chili oil because I did not have any. The meat turned out very tender and the broth was just right; not too spicy. I used this as a filling for soft tacos.
