Weight Watchers Three Bean and Pork Slow Cooker Chili


I feel like I'm a chili whore right now because I think this is the third chili recipe I have made this year and maybe even in the past six months. What can I say? Throwing a bunch of ingredients in a slow cooker and creating awesome-ness makes me feel like I could maybe try out for Top Chef: Slow Cooker Style. Anyways, so, I've used three different types of meat: White Chicken Chili, Turkey and Sausage Chili, and now the Three Bean and Pork Chili, which by the way is a Weight Watchers recipe and it's only 5 points/cup...if you're counting. 

1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1 medium jalapeno, seeded and chopped
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
2 pound lean pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch chunks
15 oz canned black beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup tomato puree
29 oz canned diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery and onion, undrained
6 oz can tomato paste

  1. Combine onion, garlic, carrots, chili powder, oregano, jalapeno, salt and pepper in a 5-quart (or larger) slow cooker.  Stir.  Add remaining ingredients.  Stir again.
  2. Cover and cook at HIGH setting for 6 – 8 hours.  (Note:  start the chili at a HIGH setting so the ingredients quickly reach a safe temperature. You can reduce the heat to LOW after 3 – 4 hours, if you prefer.)

Yummm! I actually have a 5 bean chili crockpot WW recipe that is pretty good, but there's also a Taco Soup crock pot WW recipe that is fabulous.


3 chicken breasts (frozen of thawed)
1 onion chopped
1 package taco seasoning
1 package ranch dressing
1 can Rotelle
1 can undrained black beans
1 can undrained red beans
1 can undrained kidney beans
1 can undrained Great Northern beans
1 can undrained vegetarian baked beans
1 can undrained whole kernel corn


Place ingredients in crock pot in order listed. DO NOT stir. If chicken is frozen, cook on high at least 6-8 hours. If chicken is thawed, cook on low at least 6-8 hours. When done, use 2 forks to pull apart chicken. Stir. Enjoy!

Gotta love delicious crock pot recipes!
