Weight Watchers Friendly Zero Point Chili

Hello, Fall! Even though it's still warm here in Arizona, I'm ready for all things autumn… this includes my favorite Weight Watchers Zero Point Chili. Serving zero-point chili with 1 point cheddar garlic biscuits is the perfect way to have a low point dinner full of flavor.

We like our chili spicy. Feel free to skip the extra spices if you like yours mild! Remember that fat-free shredded cheese is 0 points for 1/4 cup, and fat-free Greek yogurt is 0 points as well. These make great additions to any WW chili! Add any zero-point ingredients (including chicken, green onions, etc) without adding points to this chili recipe.

Weight Watchers Chili Recipe for Zero Points

When Weight Watchers came out with the Freestyle Program and talked about having 200+ zero point foods, I was curious but cautious. I mean, which foods could actually be zero points? How was this program going to be like SmartPoints and Points Plus? Hmmm. I was intrigued. How can we still lose weight if they are making some foods zero? Can you overeat zero point foods? What happens if all the food I eat is worth zero points? Is there a way to track that? I had so many questions.

I saw the full list of zero-point foods and noticed ground turkey (99% fat-free) was on the list. YES! Can you even IMAGINE how many recipes I can come up with?! So. Many. Recipes.

We cooked our zero-point chili in a slow cooker but you can use an Instant Pot or stovetop. Cooking your chili in the Crock-Pot will ensure the house smells amazing when you get home, but if you're in a hurry, the Instant Pot is a great option. Ok, but can I lose weight eating only zero point foods?

Well yes, you can but you need to be cautious and not overeat. Will you be happy eating just zero point foods? This is a life-changing eating plan so don't deprive yourself of certain foods or food groups eat them in moderation and change your serving size. Enjoy eating and living while losing weight. That is what WW is for me.

If you’re concerned about overeating, our guidance is to eat zero Points foods until you’re satisfied, but not “stuffed” – you don’t want to feel like you’ve just eaten Thanksgiving dinner.
