WW points+ 5 per serving

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed

  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ground turkey and cook to evenly brown.
  • Add in chopped onions, peppers and celery and cook until tender. You do not need to drain fat if using ground turkey or ground chicken.
  • Stir in 2 packets of chili seasonings, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and beans. Mix well and add in one cup of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. 
Tips: Substitute ground chicken or ground turkey breast to lower the WW points+ value to 4 points per serving.  Also place 1 cup servings into sandwich bags, seal and place into a larger freezer bag, for individual servings that are easy to microwave. Dish will freeze for 3-4 months.
