Weight Watchers Monday ~ Potato Chowder

 This is the perfect recipe to use left-overs.
And if you have been following me (forever) for a while you know 
how I like to introduce left-overs with new dishes. 
Turn left-overs into left-overs....
This recipe came at me when I had two of those Weight Watchers
Stuffed Potatoes left-over.
Do you remember them?
What a better way to eat them up....
SOUP!
 I chopped up the left-over potatoes and turned them into Potato Chowder.
And you are going to love this one. 
It was fantastic!

Weight Watchers Potato Chowder

2 left-over stuffed potatoes, chopped
1/4 of an onion chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 c. low sodium chicken broth
1/4 tsp. dried crushed rosemary
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 c. Silk unsweet soy milk
2 handfuls of baby spinach

In a dutch oven over medium heat, combine chopped potatoes, onion, garlic, broth, and rosemary. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in soy milk slowly while stirring and then add spinach. Simmer on low for another 10 minutes, or until spinach is at the consistency you want it.
You can eat it with or without crackers. The crackers shown are Cheez-Its new Provolone flavor.
