This sounds great! I think I'd omit or lower the fat and add fat free/low sodium beef broth instead to lower the points and add to that chili flavor. As it stands now it is 6 points per serving, but can be lowered to 4 points per serving and then add a piece of garlic toast and a little Weight Watchers cheese. (garlic toast= 1 point white bread with fat free I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning). Thanks for your recipe!
