My family loves chili and I make different versions constantly. We love all-meat chili and chili with beans. What do you prefer? I prefer without beans, but it depends on the mood I am in. This recipe happened because I had both ground beef and ground bison from ButcherBox in the freezer that I needed to use up. But the great thing about chili is that you can use whatever ground meat you want.

Many of you know that I am on a 100 lb+ weight loss journey and am currently following the WW (weight watchers) green plan. This recipe (as is) is 7 points on the green plan. You can easily save points by using only ground turkey (5 points). These calculations do not include toppings, but there are so many point friendly options.

Topping Ideas:

  • Light Sour Cream – 2 Tbls = 1 point
  • Lime Wedges – 0 points
  • Diced Red Onion – 0 points
  • Cilantro – 0 points
  • Shredded Cheese – 1 Tbls = 1 point
  • Avocado – 1/4 = 3 points
  • Jalapeno – 0 points

*these are all based in the WW green plan and can vary depending on brand
