Skinny Chili Cheese Fries

One of the things I love about the Weight Watchers program is that you don’t have to give up your favorite foods…you just have to learn to make a few changes to them to make them a little healthier for you.   And that’s why I love this recipe for Skinny Chili Cheese Fries.  You get all the flavor without all the points/calories/fat. 

Here’s what you need to make these:

4 potatoes (1 per person)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 packet of chili seasoning

1 can low fat turkey chili

1 cup fat free shredded cheese

ice cubes

Start out by slicing your potatoes into wedges.

Place the wedges into a large ziplock bag. Add the oil and chili seasoning.

Seal the bag and toss/squeeze until all potatoes are coated with seasoning. Place on a cookie sheet lined with a silpat mat or foil.  Add 4-6 ice cubes to each tray of potatoes.

Cover TIGHTLY with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  Remove foil and bake another 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Place potato wedges on serving dish or plate.

Warm the turkey chili in the microwave.  Top the wedges with the chili.

Finally, top with the shredded cheese.

You’ll never miss all the fat and calories of the regular version of this dish!
