Taco Soup

Here's a recipe that a woman passed out at my Weight Watchers meeting last Saturday. It's delicious and oh so healthy. Everyone in your family should enjoy this taco soup though it's so thick I'd call it a taco stew.

Taco Soup

(1 cup = 4 Weight Watchers POINTS)

Brown 1 lb. very lean chopped meat (I used ground venison) with one larged diced onion in a large stew pot.

Add:

  • 16 oz canned tomato sauce
  • 16 oz canned kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 16 oz canned pinto beans (rinsed)
  • 16 oz garbanzo beans (rinsed)
  • 16 oz canned yellow corn (undrained)
  • 16 oz canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 3 oz. can of diced green chilies
  • one packet of dry ranch dressing
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning mix
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Heat to boiling. Immediately lower heat to simmer for 30 minutes. Garnish with cilantro. Enjoy.

I also tried this with a scoop of pineapple and mango salsa in the middle. The cold but spicy salsa with the hot soup was an interesting contrast.

This makes a large quantity and freezes well, too.

    This is not the Weight Watcher’s Taco Soup recipe that I received at my meeting. I was looking on-line to see if I could find it. I am thinking that the recipe I got was only 2 points for a cup serving. I know that the ingredients here are not the same as the one that I had. I’ll probably keep looking. Thanks

    Wasn’t there another version of this that had canned pumpkin in it? I think you called it “Even Healthier Taco Soup”. I can’t seem to find it on here, and would love to make it again.
