Skinny Turkey Taco Soup

This Skinny Turkey Taco Soup is the perfect way to warm up...
even when you're watching your waistline.

This soup is my lighter version of my mom's tried and true "Can Can" soup. It's basically ground turkey with a lot of canned items {very easy for those weeknight meals}. If you're trying to watch your sodium intake, look for the no-salt-added canned items. You can also rinse your beans and add a bit of chicken broth to make up for the lost juices. Recipe below>>>


You'll need>>>

1lb lean ground turkey breast
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 package of dry ranch dressing
1 can of rotel tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can of corn
2 cans of beans {I used black and pinto, but you could also try kidney or another variety.}



Brown turkey in large stock pot over medium-high heat, until cooked through {since the turkey is so low in fat, you may want to use a spray or olive oil to prevent sticking}. Drain and return to pan. Add seasonings, including ranch {do not mix it with anything, just add the dry ranch powder}. Add in all other ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for thirty minutes. Serves eight with 6 Weight Watchers Points Plus per serving. A serving is about a cup and a half of soup. 

Serve with cheese and chips or corn tortillas, if desired {these are not a part of the Points count, you'll need to add in the extra points, if you're tracking}.
