Recipe by Shuzbud
This is my response to craving mexican food but not being able to have the calories. This soup is very filling and low points- 6 1/2 for the whole recipe. You can control the heat of this recipe by the type of salsa you add- I usually use mild. Whatever heat you choose, it should be fresh salsa so the cilantro and other flavours are strong enough. If you really like it hot, add some chillies! I like to chop the ingredients fairly small for this recipe so you get an even flavour balance in every bite.

This soup is going to be a lifesaver! DH just started WW recently (think like in the past week) and this is so filling, and it has protein (which is so important for keeping my hunger in check) and it low points. Which is great because I only get 19! :) Thanks so much for posting Shuz! [Made for Holiday tag February 2010]. OK UPDATED to note that while this soup is full of things that are important to Weight Watchers (low points, good for you, very filling etc etc) it really really tastes good too! :)
