There are more ways to make a delicious Weight Watchers chili than you might think! Indeed, chili usually has a base of some meat, beans, chili peppers, and spices, but you can experiment with different types of meat and veggies to make new creations. Red chili has many spices and a tomato base, giving it a deep red color. On the other hand, there is another type of chili: white chili with a creamy or brothy base, and it has white meat and beans to keep it light in color, as the name suggests.

This list has red and white chili options and offers a variety of choices for people who are on a Weight Watchers diet or just want to eat healthier in general. The recipes contain different types of meat, veggies, and other fillings, and each one is unique and flavorful in its own way. Whether you want to try a Slow Cooker Green Pork Chili, Quick Vegetarian Chili, or an autumn-inspired Pumpkin-Turkey Chili, you’ll be impressed by these WW-friendly recipes.
