Vegan weight watchers (mock) chicken taco chili

We've been making this recipe from Gina's Weight Watchers recipe blog for over 6 months. We were able to keep all ingredients the same, but we replaced the chicken with our mock chicken (seitan).

This recipe turned out fantastic as always. For those who eat meat, follow the recipe above with chicken for a great crock pot recipe.

Here is the vegan recipe we followed:
Servings: 10 Size: 10 oz Prep Time: 5 minutes Calories: 202 Points: 4 ww points
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 16-oz can black beans
  • 1 16-oz can kidney beans
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 10 oz package frozen corn kernels
  • 2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 3 pieces of cooked seitan (chicken breast size, thinly sliced)
  • chili peppers, chopped (I didn't use this)
  • chopped fresh cilantro
Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place seitan on top and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Top with fresh cilantro. We topped the chili with cheddar-style Diaya cheese and paired it with weight watchers Chipotle cilantro lime rice. The combo makes it a 9 point dinner.
