Weight Watchers Taco Casserole Recipe

This Weight Watchers Taco Casserole Recipe is a variation of my favorite Weight Watchers friendly Taco Casserole (made with chicken).

Table of Contents

I like making casseroles all the time, but especially for family dinners, holidays and even events like the Super Bowl. They are just easy and always taste great and this one, at just one WW point, is a GREAT one.

If you love taco dishes, try my Weight Watchers Friendly Taco Dip and Zero Point Chicken Taco Soup, too!

With Weight Watchers, you can eat anything in moderation. I’m constantly swapping ingredients to make things more flavorful with less points. For example, I swap out plain, non fat Greek yogurt for sour cream or ground beef for ground turkey, things like that.

I like to keep things interesting! And, as I find new WW friendly ingredients in the stores, or hear about something in my WW group, I like to add them into my existing recipes to grind down the points – whenever possible. If you are on Weight Watcher’s, you already know what I mean. :)

To Use Canned Or Fresh, That Is The Question

When cooking with processed ingredients like taco sauce, pasta sauce, etc, you can easily sub those out for fresh seasonings and vegetables to reduce the point count. If you’re not following Weight Watchers, feel free to add in some tortillas (this casserole would be amazing wrapped up in a tortilla… omg) or even put some chips on top!

Make sure you try my Homemade SALT-FREE taco seasoning with this recipe! It has every bit as much flavor and it is heart healthy!

    Sounds great !!! I am going to try a serving over romaine lettuce for a taco salad and also thought it would be good over cauliflower rice.
