Crock Pot 3 Bean Chili {5 WW+ Points Dinner}

I needed a good recipe for tonight's super bowl dinner and knew the perfect place to go would be to Gina's Skinny Recipes. I always see such great meals posted on her blog and knew this would be a perfect meal for after the game.

Since I only had ground beef on hand instead of ground turkey I made due with what I had. I also added a few more spices to it to make it my own. Next time I plan on adding a few more veggies as well. Some squash maybe. And I don't know about you but I LOVE chili over broccoli. Sooo good!

And I had to add that my husband changed the first ingredient to read "buffalo" when I left the computer so now I know to ALWAY double check the ingredients in my recipes in case he's made any changes to anything. He thinks he's so sly...

Drain any fat remaining and transfer to crock pot. Add the beans, chilies, chickpeas, tomatoes & tomato sauce. Mix well. Salt and pepper to taste.
