I have been on the Weight Watchers plan since this summer and have lost 20 pounds. I'd still like to lose a few more to hit my goal weight. The new Weight Watchers Freestyle plan is making that easy. Over 200 foods are zero points, and many of those zero point foods can be combined to make some delicious recipes like this One Point Cheesecake. Today I am sharing a staple of the plan for me - 0 Point Chili in the Crock Pot. Made with 0 point ground chicken breast and 0 point beans, this recipe doesn't skimp on taste!

How to make 0 Point Chili in the Crock Pot
I made this 0 point chili in the crock pot with 99% fat free ground chicken breast. Only 99% fat free chicken breast is 0 points so be sure that is kind you use if you want to keep this dish 0 points. You can also use 99% fat free ground turkey breast.
Cook ground chicken in a skillet on the stove-top, breaking it apart to create crumbles.
Toss all the ingredients and spices into the crock pot, give them a stir, and cook for 4 hours on high heat.
The best compliment I got on this 0 Point Chili in the Crock Pot was from my husband. The day he ate this for dinner, he had also had chili for lunch at a restaurant. He was a little bummed to have chili again for dinner, but changed his tune when he tasted it. He said this turkey chili was better than his higher fat and higher calorie restaurant chili. So there you go!
You can serve this Weight Watchers Chili Recipe with some shredded cheddar and still keep it zero points. I found Kraft Cheese Fat Free Cheddar, which is 0 points for ¼ of a cup. I don't think you'd ever mistake the stuff for full fat cheese, but it is very tasty when mixed in with warm chili.
I thought this 0 point chili in the crock pot tasted even better on the second day when reheated and served. No one will complain about leftovers when you are serving this!

Frequently asked questions
I used kidney beans in this chili recipe, but you can substitute pinto beans if you have them instead.
Before you store the chili you will want to make sure it has cooled. You can store the chili in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months.
You can, but it will change the point value. Low fat ground turkey or chicken is your best bet.
