(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 190 – Slow Cooker Spicy Seafood Chowder)
My crock pot cooking hiatus is officially over. Since I stopped using my crock pot every day to make Weight Watchers friendly recipes we are not eating as well.
I’m spending a lot more time peering into the refrigerator and pantry wondering what to make for dinner. And I don’t have a great stash of leftovers ready and waiting in the fridge for quick and easy lunches.
I think I need the kitchen cooking discipline that crock pot cooking requires.
Not to mention that it’s heating up here in Phoenix. (102 as I type this.) The last thing I want to do is heat up the kitchen by turning on the oven or stand outside over a fiery grill!
Yesterday I made a delicious crock pot teriyaki chicken and today I’ve got sausage and peppers simmering. I feel better already. More in control. Less stressed about the whole dinner dilemma. Lunch was a breeze.
Today I’m sharing a great slow cooker spicy seafood chowder I made a while back.
Skinny on Slow Cooker Spicy Seafood Chowder
This slow cooker spicy seafood chowder is amazingly rich, thick and creamy without a lick of cream. The secrets? Evaporated fat free milk and instant potato flakes.
I used a combination of small cooked shrimp and Alaskan pollock fillets but you could really use whatever seafood you like best.
If you don’t have cajun seasoning in you pantry, you can make your own. I’ve included directions in the recipe’s cooking notes.
According to my calculations each serving has 185 calories and *5 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
