Turkey Chili (Weight Watchers Inspired) 10 Points

          Well let me first say I do not work for or endorse Weight Watchers.  I am just changing my eating habits following their point system plan and am creating recipes to eat healthy.  I do not eat out of boxes so I need to figure out ways in order to make things that are low fat and healthy super flavorful.  I am going to break down the recipes by point values that they use.  I hope you enjoy these healthy alternatives to the ones we all love to eat.  I promise that you wont even miss it or notice.  Be sure o check out my Youtube Videos on Instructions.   I am taking each recipe and making it good for one portion.  I will let you know the point value and the amount needed to reach those points. 1 Serving of Turkey Chili = 10 points.  (includes the garnishes)

  •  1/4 of a whole onion chopped (0 points)

Cook for about 2 minutes then add the beans and the corn.  Cook for a few minutes add the chicken broth and the tomato sauce.  Cook until most of the broth is rendered down.  Take off heat and put in bowl, add cheese, onions and avocado.  Serve and Enjoy…All that food for 10 points.
