{Pinterest Projects} Skinny Taco Soup
























So, like I said in my last post, I joined the biggest loser challenge at my work.  I haven't been motivated AT ALL in the last 4 months to do anything that might cause me to break a sweat, so I thought if I joined a team of people counting on me to lose some weight it would motivate me.

I found this recipe on www.skinnytaste.com via Pinterest. It's only 198 calories per serving~!


 Turkey Chili Taco Soup
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes 
  • 1.3 lbs 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 10 oz can rotel tomatoes with green chilies
  • 15 oz canned or frozen corn, drained
  • 15 oz kidney beans, drained
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 16 oz fat free refried beans
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (you can use 40& less sodium)
  • 2 1/2 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth
In a large pot, brown turkey on medium heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. When cooked through, add onions and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes, corn, beans, tomato sauce, refried beans, taco seasoning and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer about 10-15 minutes.

Verdict:  De-Lish!  Taco soup normally is a little greasy due to the beef, but this one tasted a lot healthier.  Definitely a keeper.
