Since switching from Keto to Weight Watchers, one of the things I’ve been excited about is all the different soups. On Keto, the main soup I made (and it’s super good) was chorizo chicken soup. On Weight Watchers, I have a ton of different soups to make. I like soups because you are able to freeze them. With knee surgery coming up in less than two weeks, filling the freezer has been my main goal. This spicy turkey chili recipe is a perfect addition. And, best of all, it’s only one point on Weight Watchers!

Delicious Spicy Turkey Chili
This spicy turkey chili is so good! I made this yesterday and actually had a bowl of it this morning for breakfast! Now remember, if you are following Weight Watchers, you must use the extra lean (99%/1%) ground turkey for it to be so low in points. The only thing in this recipe that adds points is the tomato paste. Be sure to scan all of your ingredients and put it in your recipe builder yourself. Some of the beans I scanned at the store were NOT 0 points. The beans that were not zero points had sugar as one of the ingredients. Be sure to look for that.

Freezer Friendly Recipe!
Like I mentioned above, I am having surgery in less than two weeks. I am making sure to stock my freezer to make things easier. This recipe works perfectly as a freezer recipe! I picked up these freezer friendly containers that are perfect for freezing soups, pulled pork, taco meat, etc. Be sure to pick up some freezer labels and label with the name of the item (duh!) and the date you put it in the freezer.
