Weight Watchers Ground Beef Recipes

Weight Watchers Crockpot Cheesy Beef & Bean Dip

If you are looking for Weight Watchers Ground Beef Recipes, this one is a WINNER!

One of the biggest treats I miss while trying to diet has to be the chips and dips that are so common for family gatherings, football games, and of course holidays.  This Weight Watchers Crockpot Cheesy Beef & Bean Dip is a perfect substitute for my traditional cheese dip.  Not only does it get the melted cheese we all love, but it has a deep flavor from the ground beef and beans that leave you feeling satisfied without eating so much of the “bad for you cheese”.  Each serving is only 3 Weight Watchers Points.  



1 Pound 95% Lean Ground Beef

2 Cans Fat Free Refried Beans

1 Small Onion Chopped

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon Cumin

1 Teaspoon Paprika

2 Cups Fat Free Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Cabot brand is best for melting)



1.  In large skillet, brown ground beef until cooked through.

2.  Drain any excess grease and pour into crock pot

3.  Add in refried beans, onion, and seasonings stirring until well mixed.

4.  Mix in cheddar cheese and cook on low heat setting for 1 hour.

5.  May leave on warm and serve straight from crock pot.


Each serving of 1/3 Cup Cheesy Beef & Bean Dip is 3 Weight Watchers Points


By pumping up the beef and beans in this tasty dip, you create a hearty treat that has all the flavors you love without the excess fat.  While there are many fat free cheese’s available, we have found that Cabot brand is one of the few that will melt properly in this mixture.  This brand is available at most Walmart’s & Kroger affiliates with other cheese’s.

Weight Watchers Stuffed Burgers

Everyone loves a thick juicy steak or burger off the grill in the summer, but when you are watching your weight it can be tough to find Weight Watchers Ground Beef Recipes that don’t include tons of fat and calories. These simple Weight Watchers Stuffed Burgers are some of our favorites because they give us the taste of meat we want at a lower point value. A simple yet satisfying stuffed burger that weighs in at 6 Weight Watchers Points is perfect for those evenings when firing up the grill is on your mind. Serve with tons of grilled veggies for a well rounded and moderately point valued meal.


1 Pound 95% Lean Grass Fed Ground Beef
1 Clove Garlic Minced Fine
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Crushed Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s
1 Small Onion Sliced Thinly and caramelized
4 Ounces 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Slices)
4 Whole Wheat Buns
Lettuce, Tomato, Pickle

• In medium bowl mix together ground beef, garlic, salt, pepper and liquid amino’s.
• Separate beef mix into 8 sections and roll into balls.
• Pat beef down into 8 thin patties
• Top 4 of the patties with a slice of cheese and a teaspoon of caramelized onions
• Place a second patty on top of each and press together around edges to form a seal.
• Grill burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through and at safe temperature (we always use a meat thermometer for safety)
• Serve on whole wheat buns with favorite veggie toppings.

While this recipe point value includes the cheese, onion and whole wheat bun, it does not include points for things like mayonnaise, etc. We prefer to load our burgers up with veggies or use a small amount of mustard lower calorie and point values. The secret to these tasty Weight Watchers Ground Beef Recipes/Stuffed Burgers is using a sharp cheese, great veggies and plenty of seasonings.

ww veggie potstickers

One of the toughest foods to give up when choosing to eat healthier for me has to be Chinese-  I am always looking for Weight Watchers Appetizer Recipes that fit into the Chinese cuisine.  It’s difficult because Chinese doesn’t easily fit into my points allowances each day.  These simple Weight Watchers Vegetable Potstickers are a great addition to my meal plan that satisfy that craving while keeping me in my daily allowance.  Full of vegetables and steamed instead of fried, these lovely little dumpling creations leave me satisfied and proud of myself for making good choices.  Each Potsticker is only 2 points each!  These are perfect as an appetizer or served with steamed rice and grilled chicken for a complete meal.



12 Wonton Wrappers (smaller wrappers)

1 Cup Shredded Cabbage

½ Cup Finely Chopped Broccoli

½ Cup Shredded Carrots

1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil

½ Cup Water

1 Tablespoon Low Sodium Soy Sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s

1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt



  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat sesame oil, cabbage, broccoli and carrots and water.
  • Cook on medium heat stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
  • Add in soy sauce, ginger, garlic and salt
  • Cook for additional 5 minutes or until all vegetables are cooked through
  • Remove from heat
  • Place 1 tablespoon of vegetable mixture in center of small wonton wrappers.
  • Pinch wrapper up on both sides making a half moon shaped dumpling.  Use a bit of water around edges to help seal them if necessary.
  • In large stockpot, bring 3-4 cups water to boil.
  • Place steaming basket over boiling water and add potstickers in single layer.
  • Cover and allow to steam for 4-5 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove from steamer basket and serve.


While these require a bit of prep work to make, these Weight Watchers Vegetable Potstickers are so satisfying for that Chinese craving they are worth every second spent on them.  You may easily add in ground pork or shredded chicken if desired into the filling for a heartier version that can be used as an entree, just make sure to account for the added points the protein will create when figuring your daily allowance.

This Weight Watchers Appetizer Recipes makes 12 potstickers at 2 Weight Watchers Points each.
