Taco Soup

This has got to be the world’s easiest “home made” soup recipe. If you can chop an onion and open a bunch of cans and packets, you’re done! I got it many years ago from a colleague who, like me, was in Weight Watchers, and I make it every winter. At the time I got the recipe, the soup was one WW point per cup; that WW system is long gone, so I can’t say what it is now. But it’s still very low in fat and high in fiber.

Ingredients:

3 cans Great Northern beans (or use a combo of Great Northern and kidney beans)
2 14-oz. or 1 28-oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 cup water
2 cups canned or frozen corn
1 medium onion, chopped
1 packet dry taco seasoning mix
1 packet dry ranch dressing mix

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a 3-quart saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer about 1 hour.

Serves 6 to 8.
