Ok, here is the tortilla soup recipe. I figured the points using the formula that Dan provided. I thought that it might qualify as a high-fiber soup, 1 pt. per cup, but the way I make it, it does not contain 7 g of fiber per cup. Still, at 1.75 points per cup, it is much lower than traditional tortilla soup. I serve it over Baked Lays tortilla chips, 1 pt for 20 bite-size chips, low fat grated cheese, 1/4 cup for 1 point, and with fat free sour cream, 1 pt for 2 Tbsp. I can have two LARGE bowls of soup with cheese, chips and sour cream for only 10 points. This is one of my favorite meals!!!


Tortilla Soup:
1 Tbsp olive oil (I use garlic flavored oil)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 - 3 Tbsp minced garlic
3 small zuchinni, chopped
3 medium sized potatoes, chopped
1 can pinto beans with juice (16 oz)
2 cans black beans w/juice (16 oz)
2 cans chopped tomatoes w/juice (16 oz)
1 can corn w/juice (16 oz)
3 tsp. chicken bullion
1 fresh jalapeno
1 bunch fresh cilantro

Chop onion, zuchinni, potatoes and cook in large saucepan with olive oil and garlic. Cook until vegetables begin to soften slightly, 15 - 20 min. Add pinto beans, black beans, tomatoes, corn, chicken bullion and water to cover all. Cook on stovetop 4 to 5 hours or in crock pot all day on low. About 20 minutes before serving, dice the jalapeno, add the seeds if you want it spicier, use less pepper and no seeds if you don't like it spicy. Chop cilantro and add half to the soup at the same time. Reserve remaining cilantro. Cook for 15 - 20 more minutes.

Serve over tortilla chips, and grated cheese in bowl. Sprinkle some fresh cilantro over the top, add a little sour cream and enjoy!

1 Cup Soup = 1.75 points

This point total does not include chips, cheese or sour cream. This recipe made 16 cups of soup. I actually measured it out!!!!!

Another Taco Soup
This is a very simple quick recipe.
2 cans chicken broth (15 oz ea)
1 can black beans (15 oz)
1 can Mexicorn (15 oz)
1 jar salsa (I use 16 oz Pace Picante)

Heat until flavors blend, enjoy. I got this off the boards a long time ago so don't know who to credit. It is very good served over baked Tostitos. You can add cheese and fat free sour cream. Without the additions, I got 10 cups for 7 points, so I count it 1 point per cup. Good alternative to the vege soup!!

TACO SOUP

1 can black beans, undrained
1 can kidney beans, undrained
1 can pinto beans, undrained
1 can white beans, undrained
1 small can chopped green chilies (optional)
1 can chopped tomatoes (16 oz)
1 pkg. Taco seasoning mix
1 pkg. Ranch Dressing mix

1/2-1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed

In larger size pot, saute onion and garlic in Pam. Add beans, all undrained, tomatoes, taco seasoning, (I would start with 1/2 the package, and add to taste) and Ranch dressing mix.
(I have actually not added the dressing before and it was good too....) Simmer for about 30 min to blend flavors. If you think it's too thick, add a little water. Good with a little FF sour cream on top, too

1 cup= 1 point (without the sour cream)

NOTES : Very good and makes good leftovers-especially when you use a medium spicy salsa. The peppers have time to give the soup an extra spicy flavor. Excellent use for left over turkey from the holidays.

I love this stuff with a passion, even before I started WW, and my friends/family love it, too. It's super-easy, to boot.

2 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 15oz can pinto beans
1 15oz can diced tomatoes
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup salsa, picante, or a mixture of onions/peppers/tomatoes, etc.

I usually bake the chicken at 350 for 45 minutes, sprayed with cooking spray and wrapped in aluminum foil with a little margarine or butter spray and a sprinking of garlic powder, salt and pepper, but you could cook it anyway you'd like. However you do it, shred the chicken when cooked (or cut up to taste).

In the meantime, combine the chicken broth, tomatoes and beans in a medium to large pot. Bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat.

Cook the salsa, picante or onion mixture in a skillet with cooking spray until the onions are transluscent. Add to liquid mixture.

Add chicken to pot and cook until desired. As long as it's hot, it's good, but I find it really gets to peak flavor after about 45 minutes of cooking on a low flame.

Top with a few crumbled baked tortilla chips, and toppings of your choice (low fat mexican blend cheese, sour cream, onions, salsa, guac, etc).

With an 1/8 of a cup of low fat mexican blend cheese and a dollop of fat free sour cream, one quarter of the recipe is about 4 points.

Enjoy!

My Taco Soup = 4 cans peeled chopped tomatoes (partially drained) , 2 cans beans (I like pinquitos) drained , unless pinquitos , 2 cans corn (drained) , 1 pkg taco seasoning . If you like it kind of hot , substitute 1 can of Rotels tomatoes with chilis , for the regular . Cook it down a little . 2 cups = 3 points , or 1 1/2 points a cup .

1 Can Corn
1 Can Chunky tomatoes with pepper & onion
1 Cup Imagine No-Chicken Broth
1 Cup Imagine Butternut Squash Broth
3 Cups water
1 cup Wild Rice

Simmer for 90 minutes. It made about 3 quarts, and I didn't spice it up. It was delicious! I figure one cup at 2 points.

I made this soup once and it was fabulous! It was in a Weight Watchers magazine about 2 years ago maybe, and I can't find the magazine. I've also seen the recipe reprinted on this message board, and in the free WW newsletter they give out in NJ.

The ingredients I can remember were shredded chicken (you cook it in the pot and then shred it yourself with two forks), 2 cans of green chiles, beans, maybe some lime, and corn tortillas toasted in strips to throw on top.

If anyone has this recipe please email me or post it here! Again, I have made it, and I highly recommend it.

Thanks,

NOTES : Very good and makes good leftovers-especially when you use a medium spicy salsa. The peppers have time to give the soup an extra spicy flavor. Excellent use for left over turkey from the holidays.

I tried this soup today. I ate two cups and thought it was good and satisfying.

However, I didn't get 20 cups out of the recipe - I got 15. Which came to 1.33 points per cup instead of 1 point per cup (based on the recipe's numbers of 1 cup = 1 point).

Not sure what I did differently????

Anyway, it was a good one! Thanks for sending it.

Howdy all,
This sounds good, but a mite expensive.
I wonder if you are supposed to use the liquid in all the cans? That might be part of the difference in recipe size.

I made it last night. Thanks for the recipe. DH loved it! Yes, buying the 3 dinners seemed expensive for the little bit of rice and chicken that adds, but not having to cook the rice or chop the chicken was great, and the spices from the dinners gave it just the right kick!

I dumped everything in the pot frozen, but be careful and keep it on low because the tomotoes could make it scorch any higher (scorching is my speacialty!) I'm considering doing in the crock pot next time, but not sure if the rice would eventually get mushy. Any ideas?

I agree that it didn't make 20 cups. I even measured my soup ladle to make sure how much it held... just over 1/2 cup, so I'm counting 1 pt per 1/2 cup, but 2 cups is plenty since it's so thick, making a great 4 pt meal. I'm having it for lunch today!

This soups sounds like a natural for a crock pot, put the dinners in frozen.

Mareed,
Just wanted to let you know I made your soup... glorified. I had bought all the ingredients and tried to make it from memory. Evidently, I had some other things on hand intended for another recipe which ended up in your soup too. What I ended up with was a glorified version. Now I need to figure out the points I ended up with. I added a bag of meatless crumbles and a large can of pinto beans. Next time I'll drained everything to make it thicker, but otherwise it was great.
Thanks for the recipe!

This may have already been posted before, but I just got this last night at my WW meeting and it is really good, so I thought I would share:

Taco Soup

1 lb Ground Turkey or Lean Ground Beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1 pkd Taco Seasoning
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can chile HOt Bean
1 can Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1 can Rotel Tomatoes - Mexican Flavor
1 can Stewed Tomatoes - plain

Brown Meat and Onions. Drain. Mix Hidden Valley and Taco Seasoning into meat. Add other ingredients. Simmer 1 hour.

1 serving = 1 cup = 2 pts.

These are very delicious with Baked Tostitoes and I also thought it would be very good on top of a baked potato.

Cheron,
My "glorified version" easily made 12 1.5 to 2 cup servings if not more. I know because first of all it wouldn't fit in my crockpot so I had to transfer it to a larger pot. When finished, I divided it into 3 large butter tubs, 2 to share with friends in need and and 1 for my family. I previously measured my soup ladel and found it is just under 1 cup, and I'm almost positive I put 8 ladels in each tub.
Although not exactly scientific, I hope this helps.

This is sooooooo addicting & I don't eat veggies & I don't cook. It is a must try recipe!

I would call it cheesy vegetable soup because there weren't any beans in it....but VERY good!

This sound delicious! What are the points if I use ground turkey?

2 lbs of extra lean ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 can small green chilies
1 can of whole corn
4 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cans of pinto beans
1 package of ranch dressing (powder)
1 package of taco seasoning

Brown hamburger meat, drain all excess fat. Add chopped onion. Once that is finished in a crockpot add beef,beans, onions, ranch, and taco seasoning. drain chili juice, corn, tomatoes**, and add them. Do not add corn until very end. Cook in crockpot on low for 1-2 hours.

**you may add the tomatoes with juice if you like it really soupy.

I prefer not to add tomatoe juice because I don't like it that ruiny. If you want you can add baked tostidos, lettuce, tomatoes etc for taco salad. But don't forget to count the chips.

Not sure how many serving but it makes a lot
3 WWP per cup

Hi everyone! :wave: I used to have this taco soup recipe that I LOVED but I can't find it anywhere and I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I've looked through all of your Taco Soup recipes (and there are a few, to say the least! ;) ), however, none of them are exactly like mine. I remember most of the ingredients so I'll try to list them. I'm sure I'll be forgetting something though.

There was NO meat in mine.
Frozen corn
Refried beans
Black beans
White beans
Kidney beans
Taco Seasoning
Stewed or diced tomatoes (can't remember which?)
Tomato paste, I think
There was no Ranch dressing in mine
Onion maybe?

Does someone have a recipe like this?? I think there was 1 point in a cup. I would be so appreciative if someone could help me out. I've even tried to Google the recipe for "Taco Soup" but I've only come up with recipes including meat and nothing like the recipe I had. Thanks so much!!! :D

Hugs,
Dawn

Do you think this would be good if I added browned ground turkey to it?

AnnieFannie
03-19-2006, 01:55 PM
Most definitely. If you're doing WW, you would just have to calculate the points for adding the meat. But I didn't even think about adding meat to it.

This is what I ended up doing:

-1 can fat free refried beans
-12 oz jar of salsa
-1/2 lb ground turkey
-12 oz jar of tomatoes

It was sooooo tasty! I used homemade salad and home canned tomatoes. It was so delicious.
