"I'm told from another chef that this recipe is now 6 points on the New Weight Watchers System...... We still make it regardless of the points..... it's GREAT :)"
Serving Size: 1 (284 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 10
"Actually it is 6 PP ( Points Plus) per cup on Weight Watchers new Points Plus program. Really need to use lower sodium products to be more heart healthy. But have to say, really delicious! Thanks for sharing!"
"Oh my goodness, such flavor! I followed the recipe using mild Rotel tomatoes and a package of frozen chopped tomatoes from my garden (from 2009, shhhh don't tell, they even smelled fresh). This was so easy to put together. My nephew and his wife were my guinea pigs and they loved it as did I! I agree there is a lot of sodium in this recipe and I do need to watch my sodium. Next time I will try to use as many low sodium ingredients as I can, but for my first time preparing this I wanted to follow the recipe as closely as possible. Wow, the flavor and aroma are amazing and this will definitely be repeated in my home! Thanks MilanzMom!"
"WOW! This was sooo good! I used regular chili beans instead of hot, 1/2 an onion, and 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead of stewed but followed the recipe on everything else. I also added a little water. This was great and will definitely be a regular at my house!"
"I made is soup as write except for the hidden valley ranch, i didn't had any and it was still great. I made another pot for work and they all loved it. thanks so much for share this recipe with us"
"Great recipe but I had to add chicken broth to make it soup-y. Otherwise, it was thick, like chili."
"I did as suggested & used either no salt or reduced sodium for all the canned vegetables. Did not miss the salt, at all! This was a hearty, delicious soup. I made some garlic/Parmesan bread to accompany the soup, wonderful meal!"
"I really love this recipe!! This goes along way as well as makes a great meal for a cold day!!"
"We made this last week...I read before I sarted and automatically left out Ranch dressing(too much salt and calorie intake) and added lower sodium taco mix as well. I think that really cuts down on saltiness many have pointed out. The flavor is perfect and while I did use diced tomatoes instead of others the recipe is easy and certainly one even someone with an empty pantry could scrape together! onts wise it is more like 8 if you leave out Ranch packet. I have teen boys who are never filled up with just soup so I added a side dish of rice and of course corn bread for them! I was very satisfied with a great bowl of chilli style soup and will make this again very soon. Thanks!"
"This soup was delicious! The consistency is more of a chili than a soup though. I omitted the can of cannellini beans and added a cup of water when it was simmering because I wanted it to have more liquid. I also used two cans of regular stewed tomatoes as I could not find the Mexican flavored version, but it came out fine. I added a dash of cumin and chili powder in the end to make up for it. Does not taste like a diet soup at all!"
"Just made for dinner tonight, fantastic. A keeper that I will make again!"
"AWESOME!!! This recipe was such a big hit in my house. I am being told that I need to start making this atleast twice a month. Adding sour cream, cheddar cheese and jalapenos on top to garnish the soup was perfect."
"I don't know how this missed the mark so badly based on the rave reviews but I found this recipe was SO salty. The recipe didn't call for no-salt versions of anything so I used my pantry basics and I should have trusted my gut myself when I was dumping cans thinking "this is going to be really salty". I had to add 3 cups of water to cut the overwhelming saltiness. Do your heart a favor & use low sodium versions of as many of the ingredients as you can."
"Amazing! My entire family loved it. I work nights and am always searching for quick meals.....this is one of them. I came home and browned the ground beef and onion then mixed it all together and stuck it in the crockpot to cook for the day. Woke up at 3 and it was ready to eat. It was full of flavor (with some extra cayenne pepper thrown in) and was super filling. Next time I am going to try it in the crock pot with shredded chicken. I am sure that will be delicious! I have a very similiar recipe called Sante Fe Chicken but it is not quite as flavorful as this recipe."
"Made this a few times so thought it was time to write a review. I think its a fairly forgiving recipe and have made a few substitutions with with beans - planning to make again this week, nuf said!"
"very, very good! will make again! thank you MilanzMom for the great recipe!"
"Had some left over taco meat to use and this seemed perfect. This turned out better then I thought it would. DH and son gobbled it up. Made a couple of minor changes, used frozen corn ( just what I had) 1/2 can of ro*tel and 1/2 can diced fire roasted diced tomatoes. Simmed about 45 min. Thanks for posting!"
"Excellent!! I can't wait to try this recipe again. I accidentally burned this pretty badly and it was still really good. I know it will be perfect next time. Thanks!"
"This was very good. I made this for my family and we all enjoyed this very much. I used both cans of chili beans and added some water but otherwise followed your recipe. My family added some sour cream and corn chips, I ate it as is. We will make this again, we liked it better then chili. Thank you for sharing this yummy soup recipe."
"I made this tonight. I added 2 fresh Jalapenos, chopped. And instead of the regular Ranch mix, I used Hidden Valley spicy ranch mix. Plus I added some hot sauce. ( only because I like things very spicy ) Turned out very good. Almost hard to believe it's a WW recipe. More like a chili consistentcy."
