    Default Homemade Chili - points?

    I was in a hurry this morning, but this is what I threw into the crock pot:

    1.18 lb 95% ground sirloin - browned and drained
    1 big can diced tomatoes
    1 regular can Brooks mild chili beans
    garlic
    1 dried hot pepper with seeds
    1/2 onion
    1/2 red pepper
    chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes

    I saved the cans, but they are at home and I am not. Any idea how many points this would be? I *think* that I recall the beans being abouts 140 cal per serving, but I didn't notice the fiber/fat and I didn't notice the serving size/servings per can either.

    HELP!

    I'm usually good with the whole point thing... all but two of the ingredients are no points...

    2 oz of the beef you used is 2pts... so the entire package is around (I figured on a pound and a quarter so it's a little less) 20 pts.

    The beans are usually very high in fiber and from my experiece a can of beans is around 3 pts.

    It looks like the whole dish is 23pts.

    Hope this helps!

    thanks!

    I added another can of beans (needed spicy beans). So, that brought it up to about 25pts. I figured 6-8 servings, so about 4pts for each serving for a good size bowl (about 1-1.5cups).

    Thanks so much!
