            Roasted Red Pepper Tuna Salad
            light meals


            POINTS® Value: 2
            Servings: 4
            Preparation Time: 10 min
            Cooking Time: 0 min
            Level of Difficulty: Easy
            Take tuna salad in a new direction with chopped roasted red peppers. The addition of one new ingredient can really make a difference.


            1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
            1 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
            1 Tbsp dill, fresh, chopped
            2 medium scallion(s), finely chopped
            1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped (packed without oil)
            12 oz water-packed tuna fish, drained
            Instructions
            Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl until well mixed. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
            Notes
            To roast your own peppers, cut peppers in half, remove seeds and place peppers cut side-down on a baking sheet. Broil until skin is blackened. Remove peppers from oven and place in a tightly-sealed plastic bag for about 15 minutes to steam. When peppers are cool enough to handle, remove blackened skin with your hands and chop as desired.

              Another from WW boards. Note is from poster-I have not tried this.


              Colorful Crock-pot Chicken Stew


              Makes 10 servings
              If you are on weight watchers it is 2 points per serving

              2 chicken breast uncooked and boneless, skinless chicken breast
              1 14-½ oz. Diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
              ¾ cup uncooked brown rice
              5 medium carrots
              3 large stalk celery
              1 large onion
              1 medium bell pepper
              1 8oz. can mushrooms
              4 cubes chicken bouillon
              2 packets SPLENDA
              2 teaspoons Chili powder
              ¼ teaspoons black pepper
              1-tablespoon cornstarch
              4 cups water
              1 cup frozen green peas
              1 cup frozen green beans

              Cut chicken into small cubes. Chop vegetables; Mix cornstarch with 2 cups warm water until dissolved. Add all ingredients to crock-pot and stir well. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Stir before serving.


              Note: When I made this after putting everything in my crock-pot it did not look like enough water so I added about 1 more cup. I also about an hour or two into cooking added about 2 teaspoons cornstarch and half-cup water. I let this cook in crock-pot for about 9 ½ hours and I think it is awesome

In a soup pot, combine the remaining chicken broth, tofu, mushrooms, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and pepper over high heat; mix well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low; stir in the cornstarch mixture until thickened. Slowly stir in the beaten egg to form egg strands. Add the bean sprouts and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

                              Recipe calls for 1 teaspoon sesame oil before serving. Add 1 point to recipe total if use do this.

                              I added a can of waterchestnuts and sliced bamboo shoots. The waterchestnuts add 1 point to total.

                              Points: tofu (I used extra firm and adjusted my MasterCook because it was wrong on the nutrition for tofu.) - 4 points

                              egg - 2 points

                              waterchestnuts - 1 point

                              Total using sesame oil - 8 points for whole recipe

                              *The recipe makes about 10 cups = 1.5 points per 2 cup serving.

                              *2 points per 2 cup serving with sesame oil
