This is one of my all time favorite Weight Watchers Recipes. It is absolutely delicious and the spices really make it fantastic. Plus it is quick and easy to throw together and you don't have to simmer it all day to get a well-developed taste. It tastes great 5 minutes after throwing it together.
Our favorite way to have it is served over baked potatoes with some reduced fat shredded cheddar. Some cheese is mixed in to the recipe already, but I throw a bit extra on the top just cuz it makes it extra yummy!
