This sounds YUMMY! I have a question, though...when it says 15 servings, how much is a serving?? I mean, how do you seperate out 15 servings??? I'm a WW newbie - AND also a cooking newbie. I've seen several recipes that say how many servings, but not how much a serving is and have not tried them because I don't know how to seperate it out. Sorry is this is a dumb question ~ but I'm math challenged!

 

Thanks,

Dee

Serving sizes vary, so, yes, you will have to measure out 12 or 15 servings and approximate how large that serving is. I tend to look at the entire volume of the prepared dish and think how many cups of half-cups it looks like and then use that measuring device to dish it out. Whenever I make a large recipe like this one I tend to freeze in quarts or individual containers and that helps with the measuring too.

 

Great recipe, btw. I am bookmarking it now.

Hi,

Sorry! I'll post the rest of the recipe tonight when I get home from work.

I forgot to bring it with me...

Thanks for the feedback. I'll make sure I post all the information next time.

 

I measured this out and it made 21 cups. It is by far the best white chili I have ever had. My oldest stepdaughter told me last night that I have to make this for her sorority's chili cook-off next year. That gave it a vote of confidence in my book!:D

Thanks, Cybergranny!

Thank you tickerchick! My DH is going to love this one, especially when I tell him it is the Colonel's wifes recipe. He managed a KFC when we were very young!

Well, I have the whole cookbook from the Claudia Sanders Dinner House in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Most of it isn't very points friendly, but I'm sure with some effort, we can modify them to be a little more svelte!

 

My next endeavor... Their creamed spinach. Sounds yucky, but it's FABULOUS!

Have you had much success substituting fat free half and half for the real thing?

Thanks again for your help with my chili. I just love the stuff!:D

I'm guessing if there's 21 cups, that if I have 1 1/2 cups per serving, it's about 6 points?

A cup and a half sounds good. What a large filling serving that would be. If I have all the ingredients on hand, I will make it today to surprise DH.

 

Fat free half and half works just the same and the full fat version so go for it and let me know how it comes out. If you want to post the recipe I will point it for you.

 

Thanks again.


Barbara

Hi everyone! I'm a newbie to this site.

I'm not attending WW meetings I've just started counting points again after a long 2 years and a 2 size gain.

I started about 3 weeks ago and have lost about 6lbs.

I'm not being really strict with points but I am walking almost everyday.

About me I'm a married Christian with 3 boys, 3 dogs, a cat, 2 zebra finches, a cockateil , a Beta fish ( adopted from my daughter in law when they moved out of state) and a fish tank with 5 gold fish.

My oldest boy is 22 married, in the army and currently serving in Iraq.

My other two are 18 and 17 so I only have 1 still in high school.

I go to Neighborhood church in Redding Ca. and attend Thursday morning ladies bible study. We are now studying prayer and evangalism. Its pretty good. I enjoy the prayer and fellowship with the other ladies.

I'm hoping to get to know you all and enjoy the fellowship and sharing in prayer requests with all of you.

Have a wonderful day! Love in Christ, ruby :exercise:

tickerchick, I have to tell you that everybody loved this chili. I made it in a crock pot though and let it simmer all day. I didn't want to go to the trouble of on the stovetop so I used dried beans in the crock but used all the same ingredients. My house smelled wonderful all day! It is spicy, but not too spicy for those who don't like it hot. It also has enough pep that those that do like it hot think it has a lot of flavor.

 

Thanks again for this wonderful recipe. Half of it is in the freezer for the next time DH gets the urge for chili.

 

Let me know if you want any more of the recipes out of that book pointed. DH went all nostalgic on me when I told him whose recipe it was and went in the file cabinet and pulled out a big 8 X 10 of the Colonel and him back in the day, white suit and all!

Cybergranny,

 

So glad to hear your DH loved it. Mine loves it too.

I'm more than happy to to share more of these. If you like southern food, this book is a winner! I'll avoid those recipes that call for lard, unless you have a magic trick up your sleeve for that!

Hi Everyone,

 

I just registered yesterday and introduced myself in the Newbie section but I'll do it again here since I am a 30-something and this seems to be the best place for me :)

 

I've been doing WW online (Flex program) for just over 3 weeks now, but I am definately not new to the program. I had wonderful success with WW long ago... I lost 60lbs before I got married, but after 4 kids and a car accident I gained it all back + more. Now the time has come and I am ready to do what it takes to lose it! I really love the BCB philosophy and I am motivated and excited to be here.

 

I'm really looking forward to joining in the challenges. This seems to be a very friendly, supportive group!

 

Here is my intro post from yesterday http://www.healthdiscovery.net/forums/showthread.php?t=80387
