Weight Watcher Recipes...

I figured a really great weight watchers recipe and I got to thinking there has to be more people out there that have their own recipes....so, why not share?? Here is my recipe. Please feel free to add your own, I can always use more great ideas for my weight watchers plan!!:)

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS Weight Watchers style~ 2.5 points each
(these are only 2 points each if you use the fat free flour tortillas) Makes about 30 tortillas depending on how much filling you use in each tortilla.

1 package of chicken strips (boneless-skinless) or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cans of rotels
2 cans enchilada sauce (AKA Red Sauce)
1 package (2 cups) low fat or fat free cheese
1 pack of taco seasoning
1 8 oz container of fat free sour cream
1 medium onion
white corn tortillas or (white) fat free flour tortillas

Start your chicken in a frying pan, add chopped onion, 1 can of rotels and HALF the packet of taco seasoning. In a large mixing bowl add the other can of rotels, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, and the other half of the taco packet. When the chicken is done, chop it up and mix it all with the other ingredients in the mixing bowl. If you are using the flour tortillas all you need to do is spoon the mixture onto the tortillas and roll, if you are using the corn, you need to put them in hot oil (canola) for a couple seconds to make them soft. Pour both cans of enchilada sauce over the top and the other cup of cheese. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the cheese in melted and bubbly.

This is one of my favorites, it easy and no mess. I don't bake the squash I nuke it (much quicker)

Italian Turkey and Spaghetti Squash Pie

Servings | 6 POINTS® Value | 3
Preparation Time | 18 min
Cooking Time | 60 min
Level of Difficulty | Moderate

Ingredients

1 medium raw spaghetti squash
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
2 tsp olive oil
1 small onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
29 oz canned diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp Italian seasoning, dried
6 oz fat-free ricotta cheese
1 large egg(s)
1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving), nonstick
1/2 cup Kraft Free Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, or other brand

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Halve squash lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place squash, cut sides down, in a large baking dish and prick skin all over with a fork. Bake until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook turkey, stirring occasionally, in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain, remove from skillet and set aside.

In same skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and stir-fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; add cooked turkey and simmer, stirring often, until desired consistency, about 5 minutes.

Place ricotta cheese and egg in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

Coat a 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. Remove squash from oven and increase oven temperature to 375ºF.

Using a fork, carefully rake stringy squash pulp from shell, separating it into strands that look like spaghetti. Arrange spaghetti squash strands in bottom and up sides of pie plate to form a crust.

Add ricotta cheese mixture and gently spread over squash. Pour tomato-turkey sauce over cheese mixture and sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before slicing into 6 pieces.

Does anyone have the "pumpkin muffin" 1 point recipe?

I tried one at work the other day - YUMMMM!!!!!!!!

Here is one Pumpkin Muffin receipe:

Pumpkin Muffins
1 - cake mix (yellow or spice)
15 oz - can pumpkin
1 - egg white
1 teas - gr. cinnamon
1/2 teas - gr. nutmeg
(and since I like cloves, I add....
1/4 teas gr.cloves and somtimes a little dried or freshly zested orange peel)

Mix all of above until light (about 3 min on medium) and then bake according to the cake mix directions. You can use Pumpkin Pie Spice instead of the individual spices if you have it.

They are 2 pt per muffin. They are not really big but I try to get 24 out of this mix. I'll usually make some using my mini muffin pan (for 1 point) and the rest regular cupcake size (2 pts). I have added, on occasion, about 2 tablespoons of finely chopped nuts or even dried cranberries...but this adds points, or rather fractions of points per serving.

i actually don't know the weight watchers point value of this, but I could figure it out, but a great dessert from the south beach diet is to take like a half cup of low-fat or fat-free ricotta, add a packet of splenda, and then whatever flavoring you like (cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, etc) and mix it all up. sweet, creamy, delicious, wonderful! and I feel much less guilty than when I eat low fat ice cream:)

This is similar to Dr. Weil's chocolate ricotta. I think for WW it would be 2 or 3 pt if I remember correctly.

I found this one on Hungry Girl.com. I think I might try it today....

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins


(1 Muffin, or 3 minis - 180 calories, 2.5g fat, 37 carbs, 2.5g, fiber, 2.5g protein - 3 WW points)

This super-simple 2-ingredient recipe is a Weight Watchers Fave!

1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 can solid pack pumpkin (15 oz.)

Directions:
Mix the two ingredients together. Don't add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, such as eggs, oil, or water. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. DO NOT DO THIS AS IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING! Place batter into muffin tins (or mini muffin tins) lined with paper, or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 regular or 36 mini muffins.

To the 8:26 rotel question - Rotel tomatoes are a canned diced tomato with spices and green chili, a lot of people use it to make queso. You can usually find it in the canned tomato section.

Re: Pumpkin Muffins

This comment made me laugh because I remember when I was in HS and my mom was in Weight Watchers and the "Pumpkin Muffin Recipe" was brand-spanking new around there and at meetings, they would talk about it like it was the Holy Grail..lol

Canned Rotels

that probably refers to Rotel tomatoes that come in a can. They are spicy, but you can get them in a variety of heats. The original is a little above medium, but I like it spicy.
