Recipe by Carolyn Schley
This is a very hearty filling meal for 4 people. Each serving equals 5 points on the Weight Watcher Points Plan, as follows: BOCA = 1 point & 1 cup Pinto Beans = 4 points, rest of recipe are free points. We watch FAT intake, most other chili's are too high in fat content. This recipe is one of my own creations, and my husband says this is the best chili he has ever eaten.
