For my recipe this week I am gonna share a Taco Soup that I got at a WW meeting years ago. I love it and eat it as a soup and then on lettuce and tortilla chips as a taco salad after I am tired of the soup. I wish I knew the source to give credit to, but I have no idea who gave me this recipe years ago.
1 large onion, diced
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes & green chiles (Rotel works too)
1 (11 ounce) canned corn with red and green peppers
1 (15 1/2 ounce) can low-fat or fat-free black beans
2 cans water (3 1/2 cups)
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 package ranch salad dressing mix (dry)
Sautee onion with vegetable oil cooking spray. When softened, combine all other ingredients and cook until heated through.
Makes 9-10 cups. Serving size is 1 cup.
2 WW points per serving.
As promised last week, I have included a picture of myself this weekend with my grandparents. TERRIBLE picture, I know, but I am trying to monitor my loss in photos here people. I will make sure I get a better picture next time.
I also wanted to share a couple of things that kept me semi-on track while travelling. I packed the Fiber One chocolate granola bars and Baked Lay's Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips.
Whether I wanted something chocolate or salty, they were my go to foods instead of a Snicker's bar or bag of chips at the convenience store. They are 2 points a piece, and while I realize some fruit would have been better, I am a salty/chocolate snack kind of girl. Also, we ate at Chick Filet whenever possible. The boys love it, and I get the chargrilled chicken sandwich for 5 points. YUM!
How did all my WW buddies out there do this week?
