Recipe Notes

If you follow weight watchers each serving is five points for me. I know some people have sweet potatoes as “a free“ food, but I don’t. Same for chickpeas/garbanzo beans.

Each serving was a half of a potato stuffed with the red peppers, spinach and scooped out potato. I’m going to say that’s three points after researching. The chickpeas… Two points.

Weight Watchers points breakdown – 5 points with chickpeas – Three points without chick peas
