Something New: Weight Watchers Tasty Soup

Thanks to the most recent Bunko Divas hostess, LaLa, I have a new recipe and was able to make this simple dish tonight. I do not know the name, all I know is that it's tasty soup and I was told it was a weight watchers recipe, I believe. Here is what it's made of...

  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of ranch style black beans
  • 1 can of shoepeg corn
  • 1 packet of ranch seasoning
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 can of ROTEL
  • 3/4 cup of water

I have no idea what shoepeg corn is, so I got my hubby's favorite instead, white corn. And instead of doing 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground turkey, I wanted to keep it simple and prepare only one meat so I chose the leaner ground turkey for a full pound. Cook the meat along with the chopped onion, and add it to the pot of all the other goodies. Cook and simmer in the pot for 30minutes and wha-laa - a warm tasty simply treat.

I made it this evening and am thankful LaLa shared it with me because it will be added into my arsenal of dinners. Only thing I worry about is the remainder of the evening - - - there sure were a lot of beans in that soup... high fiber. Wonder if that will affect anyone in this house? ha ha. Only time will tell.

Bon Appetit!

YAY - I am soo glad everyone enjoyed! We actually made a double batch last night while we were making the dinner we were eating last night - your tilapia recipe :) and will eat the soup tomorrow night and freeze the rest for an easy couple of dinners down the road. We love it!
