Are the stats on that correct for 1 serving? 97.7 carbs? How big is a serving? It sounds so good but I can’t afford that many points on WW.

The high carb amount comes more from corn, not chick peas. Don’t add the corn and you won’t have as many carbs or sugar. I am making this tomorrow! Can’t wait!

Can you use ground meat for this recipe?

If I precook the ground meat, do I still add it to the crock pot at the same time it says to add the chicken, or later?

I used ground chicken breast and it turned out great!! Once in the serving bowl, I added a bit of A-1 with tabasco and some salt to give it a bit of a kick. It was delicious. Will definitely be making this again!

Made this today in the crockpot and it was delish! I used shredded rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken in there, and it was just as wonderful! Oh, and I added some kidney beans! Mmmmm great recipe! Love the addition of secretly healthy pumpkin!

making this now and totally didn’t read down far enough to see that you cut the chicken later. I cut it in the beginning, will this affect cooking time? I have it at high but have enough time to cook on high for 6 hr if need be. thank you for your help!

To quote my husband, AMAZING! Thank you for sharing this! I used half the amount of beans. It was delicious. Thanks!

It sounds great but my husband is on Weight Watcher and a serving has 17 points. I’m assuming the info you give includes the toppings.

I’m not seeing on the recipe where it says to add beans?

Can I leave out the beans? Not crazy about chili with beans. Looks wonderful and I am cooking it tonight.

Has anyone ever used any other type of beans?? My husband won’t eat chickpeas!

It says to use “14oz of tomatoes, diced”. Should I use fresh or use canned. I was going to use canned, but was not sure if I should drain them before adding, or add the liquid as well. Suggestions?

What are chipotle peppers in adobo sauce? Is this found in a can, or is this something I have to make ahead of time? Sorry for my ignorance, but I’m a military wife living overseas, so I have to use what the commissary supplies, and this doesn’t sound familiar. Thanks! About the tomatoes, is it okay to use diced tomatoes in a can, or am I suppose to use fresh? If I can use the ones in a can, do I drain the liquid or add it? Also, just a tip, I always shred my chicken in my kitchenaid mixer… Read more »

This was delicious! My fiance hadn’t even finished the first bite and told me how good it was! But I was wondering like Mary, since I’m also on WW. I plugged in the recipe to the recipe builder, to try to figure out the points and servings to get it to 17 points like the label, it breaks it into 3 servings. In terms of cups, how much is 515 g?

I have this at home in the crockpot as we speak. I can’t wait to try it. My kids were a little skeptical when they saw me throwing it together this morning, so I will have to wait & see what their verdict is.

So it turns out that this was an absolute HIT in my house last night! I can’t wait to make it again!

Do you thaw the chicken before you put it in the crockpot? Also I have dry chickpeas, I’m guessing I need to prepare them before putting them into the chili?

Hi, I’fe made this for my boyfriend a couple times now and he absolutely loves it (so do I!) He even had me make it for his works thanksgiving luncheon.

I have all the ingredients to make except the garlic cloves. Would jarred minced garlic work alright? If so, how much would you suggest?
