Weight Watchers Two-Bean Chili

READY IN: 37mins
Recipe by senseicheryl

I found this recipe in the March/April 2008 issue of Weight Watchers magazine. It is a CORE recipe for those following the CORE plan and it is a points value of 5 for a serving of 1 cup of chili with 2 tablespoons sour cream and 1 tablespoon of scallions.

Very tasty, very easy ... great for a week night. I used Certified Angus Beef ground beef and rinsed it with hot water to remove some of the fat content. I also used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, which may have reduced the points overall!

  1. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the beef and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add the onion, garlic, bell pepper, chili powder and cumin.
  4. Cook until the vegetables are softened, 3-4 minutes.
  5. Stir in the tomatoes, beans and salt and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the chili thickens slightly, about 15 minutes.
  7. Serve topped with the sour cream and scallions.
