Weight Watchers Taco Soup
{Pin It}

Light and filling this version of taco soup is perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner. This weight watchers taco soup is roughly 6 points on the Weight Watchers scale, so it won’t break your healthy eating goals.

You can use a packet of low sodium taco seasoning or make it from scratch using the recipe below to add a fresher, brighter flavor. I love to add a dollop of cool sour cream to the top of a spicy soup to compliment the heat, nowadays I am substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream to save on fat and calories, boost the protein, and it really tastes the same. Add a sprig of fresh cilantro to brighten and you can sit down to a healthy and pretty bowl of soup.

I recommend using organic or natural, no salt added canned products.  You could also cook your own beans and skip the cans all together.  I make big batches of beans in the crock pot then throw them in the freezer. You can also use up garden fresh tomatoes if you have some on hand.
