Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili
Some recipes seem to complicated for me to make in my electric pressure cooker, but soup is not one of those! It is super easy and is done in no time at all.
I think you will enjoy how easy this Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili really is to make.
How to Make Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili
Get ready…. First you need to put all the ingredients in your pressure cooker.
Next set the Instant Pot to the soup setting for 15 minutes.
Do a quick release at the end of the cooking time and you are done!
This will take about 30 minutes total…that includes the time the IP takes to build up the pressure at the beginning.
Freestyle SmartPoints for White Chicken Chili
Hold on to your hats people….this yummy Weight Watches White Chicken Chili is ZERO freestyle smartpoints! Who doesn't LOVE a zero calorie, filling soup?
This recipe is full of filling fiber with the beans and has a great kick to it. You can use mild, medium or even hot picante sauce!
I figured this recipe using Pace Original Mild Picante sauce. This was zero points. Other brands could have a different points calculation so watch that closely!
The other thing to note is that I used fat-free chicken broth. If you use regular chicken broth it could increase the points based on if the broth has any fat in it. I have found that low sodium broths tend to be zero points.
Don't forget that if you like to add extra toppings to your soups…like cheese, sour cream, etc. that you will need to count those points.

Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili is made in the Instant Pot and is very simple to make. With zero Freestyle SmartPoints per serving it is a guilt free meal.
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
- 32 ounces Picante sauce 2 16 oz. jars works great. Mild, medium or hot is fine.
- 48 ounces fat-free chicken broth
- 48 ounces canned Great Northern beans drained
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Cut your chicken into small bite-sized pieces.
Drain the Great Northern beans.
Combine all ingredients in Instant Pot and cook on soup setting for 15 minutes.
When the cooking time is done do a quick release of the pressure.
Be sure to check points if you use another brand of Picante sauce. I based the points on Pace. Other brands could have points.
I sometimes have trouble finding fat-free chicken broth. Typically the low sodium broths end up being zero points. Check labels and pick a broth that doesn't have fat in the nutritional facts.
You can make this mild or HOT. Pick a picante sauce that suits your taste buds.
If made with the ingredients I have listed this comes out to be zero points. I got about 10 cups from my batch of chili and each serving is one cup.
