White Chicken Chili – 4 WW Points Plus

Grumpy is not a chicken kinda guy.  If I make chicken once a week it can be too often for him.  However, I’m not a beef kinda girl.  I just never cared for it.  I do my best to make recipes that are good for us and if I can sneak chicken in it I’m a lot happier.  :)

This White Chicken Chili is a great weeknight meal and just one cup of it is 4 weight watcher points plus (if your counting that is).  I went with 1-1/2 cups for 7 points.  I’m looking forward for leftovers for lunch tomorrow.  I made sure to get another serving out before Grumpy finished it up on me!  He really liked this recipe but he thought it should be a little thicker.  Next time I will mash an extra cup of beans in the recipe to thicken.

    I actually prefer white chili to the "traditional" version. I love that this one is "figure" friendly. Is that still a term or am I again dating myself! Anyway. looks delish and healthful. Thanks Shelby! #Chicken #Chili, can't wait to try!
