Yesterday I shared with you my favorite Weight Watchers taco soup recipe. Today I wanted to share with you a couple of other great Weight Watchers recipes that you may have missed the 1st time we posted them.
My favorite WW swap is making this yummy chips & salsa recipe that Whit shared with us. She said, “I’ve had Mexican food on the brain lately. I grew up in AZ and sometimes I just crave chips & salsa. Not exactly a healthy option on Weight Watchers. UNLESS you bake your own chips.
What I do: Take 2-3 delicious corn tortillas (I prefer white corn) and use a pizza cutter to cut them into strips. You can cut them into triangles like the photo, I just think it’s easier to cut them into strips and I also prefer dipping/eating them that way. Put your tortilla strips into a bowl and drizzle your healthy oil on top of them. Rub the oil into the strips and put onto a baking sheet. You can also use cooking spray for this step. Bake at 450* for about 5-7 minutes on each side. Flip them when the top side has browned. They are done when the second side has browned and they are crisp.
For my hot sauce, I take some Pace Salsa (or whatever I bought on sale) & blend it (just in my blender) with some El Pato Jalapeño Salsa (you can usually find this in the Mexican food section of your local grocery store and it’s worth looking for). The more El Pato you use, the hotter your sauce, so pour it to taste. This makes for some yummy hot sauce!
Then I have a bowl of black beans (maybe a little lime juice on top) with my chips and salsa and I’ve eaten a nice low point Mexican food meal! Points Plus values depend on the tortillas that you purchase. You can find tortillas that are 1-1.5 points/each. The hot sauce is FREE and the black beans are also free if you’re doing the Simply Filling Technique. Black beans are 2 PP for 1/2 C if you’re not doing SFT.”
What goes great with chips & salsa? Ice cream. Here is a great way to enjoy ice cream while doing Weight Watchers:
Simply take frozen fruit (I prefer either sliced up ripe bananas or peaches) and put it into your favorite blending appliance. This appliance needs to be able to really chop through frozen fruit. For one portion of fruit (i.e., 1 banana or peach frozen) you will add about 1-2 Tablespoons of skim milk or coconut milk or almond milk or whatever you prefer (you can add chocolate almond milk to the bananas – delicious!) and a dash of vanilla. Blend all of this until it is the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Add more liquid as needed.
You can add whatever you you want to count points for (or 0 points items like cocoa powder!) into your ice cream or on top of your ice cream. I just purchased peanut butter powder to add in with my banana ice cream. Mmmmmmm!
