One more... TACO SOUP

  • 1 can pinto beans, undrained
  • 1 can white beans, undrained

  • 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

Last one I have.... Another Taco Soup
  • 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!!
