This delicious, hearty Weight Watchers WW Freestyle Zero Point Chili recipe has been a favorite recipe of mine for years and I know you are going to love it, too.
This delicious chili recipe is one the go-to WW recipes that I’ve made dozens of times during the many years I’ve been doing Weight Watchers.
WW Freestyle Zero Point Foods
In years past when I was following the Points Plus program, this chili was low in points, but now with WW Freestyle you can make this chili to be zero points. Amazing!
While it’s true that you could eat a whole day’s worth of zero point foods, it’s not necessary to only eat zero point foods.
Still, having these zero point food options helps balance out a day when you were more hungry for snacks, want to eat a higher point dinner, or it’s a day to splurge on a special dessert.
Note – It’s important that you use lean ground turkey breast in order for this to be free. Lean ground turkey does have points. Lean ground turkey breast can be quite expensive so be prepared for the extra expense in your grocery budget.
I find the splurge to be worth since I make a huge double batch of this zero point chili recipe. We eat it for dinner one night then I have some to freeze and plenty of left-overs for my lunches throughout the week.
You’ll find a number of variations online when you search for a WW Freestyle Zero Point Chili recipe. I add plenty of extra vegetables to mine to give it additional flavor and texture plus they fill this hearty chili with all the nutrition of a veggie-filled meal.
