Great! Here is a fun recipe: I think of WW as a new lifestyle of eating..and good for the whole family!

Layered Mexican Chicken
1 serving cooking spray
2 cups cooked chicken or turkey breast cubed
1 can black beans -- rinsed and drained
2 cups fat-free sour cream
2 cups shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
4 ounce chopped green chilies
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
5 large spinach tortillas -- cut into 2-inch strips
1/2 cup salsa -- mild, medium or hot

All of the measurements were approximately!!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a lasagna pan with cooking spray. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces. Transfer chicken to a large bowl and add beans, sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheese, chilies, cumin, salsa and pepper; mix well and set aside.
Arrange half of tortillas in bottom of prepared lasagna pan, overlapping pieces to cover bottom of pan. Top tortillas with half of chicken mixture, layer with remaining tortillas and then top with remaining chicken mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese.
Bake until filling is bubbly and cheese is melted, about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces. Serves 12
6 POINTS per serving

I will be glad to join in! I am on day 26 and it ain't bad! I have found because they give you 35 bonus points a week That I can take a day and slurge if I want or just use the extra a little at a time...or not at all. I love having options that don't include guilt!!!!

AND if anybody whats to know point value of a recipe revised or other wise I have a calculator for that...I just need to know calories ,fat and fiber...then I can tell ya!

Thanks Janet

Skillet surprize

cooked med red potato (1 point) diced, 1/2 c. eggbeaters(2pts.),1 sliceww bread broken into small peices(1/2 pt), and 1/4 c. chopped onions(1/4 pt)= mixed all together and fried in a sprayed with olive oil skillet. Took me home...as a child we ate a version of this often and it is a comfort food for me. Made this way was really good too and a large serving!



Crustless Pumpkin Pie -weight watchers
Whole Pie = 6 Points with skim milk - 9 points with evaporated skim milk

15 oz can pumpkin ( make sure this is 100% pumpkin,NOT pumpkin pie mix)

½ cup EggBeaters

1+1/2 cup skim evaporated milk

¾ cup Splenda (you can use ½ cup – depends on how sweet you want it)

½ teaspoon salt (you can use just a dash or leave it out completely)

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (I prefer 1+1/2 teaspoons)

Beat all ingredients together until smooth; put in pie pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degree for 15 minutes, then bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.


Crab Salad , Candy's ww points 1 for aprox. 2 tbsp.

2 6 oz. cans canned real crab meat =140 cal. & no fat
3 tbsp. miricle whip lite = 75 cal.& 4.5 fat
you can add 1 more tbsp of m.w. lite if you want it will
only add 25 cal & 1.5 fat g. and the point value stays
same.
1 tbsp. yellow mustard free food
1/4 c. finely chopped onion free food
1/4 c. finely chopped celery free food
1/2 to 1 teaspoon dry dill crushed as you add it free food
1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning....or more to taste free food

Mix everything and enjoy. This is better if left in frig a few hours for flavors to meld.

Wow already so many recipes to choose from. This recipe is for a quiche which I love .


Recipes
Bacon and Swiss Quiche


POINTS® Value | 3
Servings | 8
Preparation Time | 20 min
Cooking Time | 35 min
Level of Difficulty | Easy

light meals | Vary this simple recipe by using other types of cheese, or by adding diced, cooked vegetables and fresh herbs.

Ingredients


2 sheet phyllo dough, cut into 3 strips each
3 large egg(s)
1/4 cup regular egg substitute
1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup low-fat hard cheese, Swiss, grated
4 oz cooked crisp turkey bacon, diced


Instructions


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.


Lay phyllo dough in pie plate, one piece at a time, coating each layer with cooking spray — dough should cover bottom and sides of dish. Fold in any overhanging corners.


Whisk together eggs, egg substitute, milk, flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg.


Sprinkle cheese and bacon over phyllo dough. Pour in egg mixture and place quiche on a baking sheet. Bake until firm, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool at least 5 minutes before cutting into 8 wedges.


This was from the weight watchers site

Add a salad and that is a full meal for me!!

Hugs Debbie

pita pizza 4 points with out olives and 5 with

1- fat free or 1 fat gram per whole pita,whole wheat...this is one point but if you use another kind of pita it will be more. wholewheat is important as fiber reduces the point value.

1/4 c. ff pizza sauce- free
1/4 c. low fat motzerella =3 pts
finely chopped onions green peppers or other free veggies
10 sliced ripe olives =1 pt.


I love this as I am a Pizza freak! This tastes so much better than the frozen ones and is less points. And the whole family can eat them.
