Crock Pot Pork Chili Recipe – 4 Points +

Crock Pot Pork Chili

Normally, one wouldn’t imagine a bowl of steaming hot chili as a meal on a sweltering summer day, but this Crock Pot Pork Chili is so light and fresh tasting, it makes a wonderful Weight Watchers Summer Recipe. The pork is nice and lean, and the fresh lime juice really help give this low calorie chili a bright flavor boost and a summer-y feel. This is a perfect crock pot recipe for when you have a busy day ahead, as the prep work is minimal, so you can toss it all in your slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time. I also topped mine with some reduced fat sour cream (for 1 extra Points Plus) and I really loved the flavor and texture that added to the chili. But feel free to top it with other flavor fixin’s you might like: jalapenos, green onions, diced onions, shredded cheese…these are all great options. And at just 4 Points + for each large serving, this guilt free Crock Pot Pork Chili is an absolute winner.

Comments

  1. I put in a tablespoon’s worth. Once cooked, I will taste and adjust.

    • I just realized I forgot to include the lime juice in the ingredient list. I must have deleted it when copying from my Word doc. Anyhow, the recipe calls for the juice from 1 lime. I have updated the post already. :) Thanks for catching this!!

  2. Sarah Arlandson says:

    I have the same question as Gail… how much lime juice? I have it all cookin’ (without lime juice) in the crock pot right now and it smells delightful.

  3. This sounds great! Can’t wait to try it….and I was wondering about the lime juice too! I’m not a big citrus fan, but might try it in this recipe…thanks for a great post!

  4. Ah, that was my question as well. Can’t find the lime juice anywhere.

  5. How much lime juice? Looks yummy refreshing.
