Taco Soup and Drama

This is one of those meals that makes being on Weight Watchers OK. Just like everything in life, the program can get dull. It can get annoying. It can make you feel desperate. Desperate might be a little dramatic, but there have been times where, if given the chance, I would have locked myself in a dark room with a bag of oreos and a glass of 2% milk.


Doesn't that sound amazing? Focus.

Back to the soup.  Taco soup, that is.  It's something that I'm sure is in most people's bag of culinary tricks.  If it's not in yours, it should be. It's always tasty, always comforting, and always makes me want to do a little MC Hammering across the den floor.  Especially since I vacuumed last night. 

Taco Soup

1 1/4 lb extra lean ground turkey
cooking spray
1 large onion, chopped
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 package taco seasoning
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can pinto beans
1 can red beans

Brown meat and onions in a large pot sprayed down with cooking spray.  Once done, add ranch and taco seasoning.  Add rest of ingredients (undrained) to the soup. 

Allow mixture to come to a boil, reduce heat.  Allow to simmer for about an hour.  I added a half a soup can of water to mine, just to thin it out a little.  But you can do whatever you want. 

Serving size 1 cup (makes about 10 servings)
WW points 3
Points Plus 5

This is great with some sour cream and shredded cheese, just be sure to adjust points (if you're into that).
