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.
