Skinny on Weight Watchers Crock Pot White Beans and Shrimp

I adapted this recipe for Weight Watchers Crock Pot White Beans and Shrimp from the Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook.

The recipe called for using a large 5 or 6-Quart slow cooker, which would have been WAY too big. (Using my slow cooker so much has improved my ability to spot potential problems and avoid kitchen catastrophes :-) )

For best results your slow cooker should always be between one-half and two-thirds full. So, I adjusted and used my 1-1/2-Quart slow cooker, which worked perfectly. I think a 2-Quart would work well too.

According to my calculations each serving has 211 calories and *5 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

Enjoy!
