First of all folks, I sincerely apologize for the delay in posting new recipes! My family and I just relocated to Orange County, CA from Los Angeles, and the past few weeks have been CRAZY HECTIC. I’ve had absolutely no time to blog and new Weight Watchers recipes.

But as my life gets back in order, I’m doing my best to keep this site updated and add new recipes more frequently. Additionally, I’m also working on some big changes for the site, and I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on that. :)

Anyway, on to today’s tasty recipe! With dreams of Superbowl foods dancing in my head, I wanted to share this delicious and easy Spicy Potato Skins Recipe that has just a 5 Points value for 2 filled skins.

Keeping the true flavor of this popular appetizer recipe, you get all the taste you expect, but a LOT less fat and calories. It’s so yummy, no one will have any idea it’s for weight watchers!

So if you are looking for a good weight watchers Super Bowl recipe or just a delicious low calorie snack recipe for anytime, these spicy chipotle potato skins will get you super excited!

    I'm slow, I guess. Recipe calls for "uncooked potatoes, baked…"

    Do I bake them first and then scoop?

    Want to try this, but need explanation.


    • Just a typo…sorry for the confusion. I've corrected it and updated the post. You'll need to bake the potatoes first and then scoop out the inside.

  3. I just came across this site today and it is such a find! I'm a WW lifetime member who has been veering a little off program in the last week and was looking for something to satisfy my sweet tooth. Luckily I found your No Pudge Fudge pumpkin bar recipe! Can't wait to make it tonight – Thanks!
