    Default Point ? for family chili recipe

    The recipe is below, my question is how many points does it have? I figured them myself but I want to make sure I am doing this right.

    2lb ground meat (will get lean)
    1 med onion
    1 pod garlic
    3 cups water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon celery salt
    1/2 teaspoon comino
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1 oz chili powder
    1 15oz can tomato sauce
    15 oz water

    Ok, I only figured the ground meat to have points. 2lbs of ground meat would be 32 points for the whole pot. Is this right?
    In case you didn't figure this out already, I am very new. This is my 3rd day, so I don't want to mess up.

    There are 3 ways to figure points for a recipe.

    1) figure total points per ingredient, add them up and divide by the number of servings
    2) figure total cal/fat/fiber for each ingredient, add up each and divide each by the number of servings
    3) use a software program like e-tools or Mastercook

    2lb ground meat (will get lean) = depends on the leanness -- look at the label and remember 93% and leaner loses about 2-3 ounces and anything fatter loses about 1 ounce per 4 ounces
    1 med onion - 1 point (if you count onions personally I don't)
    1 pod garlic - not sure what a pod you mean clove or head -- either way it is 0 points
    3 cups water - obviously 0 points
    1 teaspoon salt - 0 points
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper - 0 points
    1/2 teaspoon celery salt - 0 points
    1/2 teaspoon comino - (not sure what comino is but if it is a spice) - 0 points
    1/2 teaspoon oregano - 0 points
    1 oz chili powder - 0 points
    1 15oz can tomato sauce - 0 points
    15 oz water - 0 points
