"This recipe is from a Weight Watchers meeting. It is so quick -- I ate it daily when I was on maternity leave with my second son. If I am making it for the week, I just empty the cans into a plastic container and warm up 1 serving in the microwave. I have also made it using frozen corn and mixed vegetables. Those who enjoy this may also be interested in #57009 - "5 cans and a jar"."

"I am on weight watchers now and have just made this soup. AWESOME!!! Very filling. It is 2 points for a 1 cup serving. The Progresso Minestrone soup is the best. Also, the corn should be white corn because the yellow corn has more starch. Enjoy :))"
"This soup is sooo unbelievably YUMMY!!! Even my dad, whom is a die-hard "Meat and potatoes" man, loves this soup. Now that he is living on his own, he is absolutely delighted that it is so easy to make, as he is not one for recipes that require more than a few steps. I actually had this recipe a few years ago, and managed to lose it (which is not very difficult for me;), and I am soooo delighted that you posted this!!! I only add ground black pepper and some garlic powder...Very hearty and filling soup, and good for you yet to boot!!! Thanks for posting! A DEFINITE MUST-TRY!! ~Manda"
"I loved this. I made it a "6 Can Soup" by adding a small can of Old El Paso Green Chilies for a little "heat.""
"YUMMY. I had my doubts even with the reviews. I was unsure whether I was suppose to drain the mixed vegies and the corn. I didn't (added it juice and all) and it worked out -- it's self evident after you begin to mix but thought it could be more clear in the directions. "
"This was so tasty and incredibly easy. It did become 4 can soup for me as I did not have any canned mixed vegtables, but that's ok. I used tomatoes with chilis and lime which added a nice taste. The kids really enjoyed it. My husband actually drained the liquid off and rolled his in a tortilla. So it is versatile too! This will definitely be something we use when time is tight as it was healthy, fast, and easy. Thanks so much!"
"This is 5 pts under point plus. If you cut the corn in half, that decreases it to 4 pts. Still 6 servings. Enjoy!"
"For taste, I would give this 4 stars, but because it was so easy, it gets 5 from me. I think this soup really needs to simmer for a while to let the flavors blend. Just heating it up isn't enough, in my opinion. After tasting it, I thought it needed something, so I added 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder, which I think helped a lot. I'm going to try some kind of flavored tomatoes next time, like basil, garlic & oregano.
It's even better the next day."
"So good for you, easy and quite delicious. I also used Progresso Minestrone, diced tomato with jalapenos, and 10 ounces of frozen corn and mixed veggies. Since the soup was too thick I added about 1 1/4 cup of vegetable broth. Served with cheddar cheese on the side and rolls for dipping. Will make it again. Picked for a day in which I only had a few minutes to put supper together."
"Im eating this right now and its so good! I am 4 months pregnant and have been craving this for a week now. I finally got the stuff, made it, and now Im happy again! :) I added some diced onion too it as well which brings out some good flavor as well. Will be making this as well after I have this baby!! :)"
"I sprinkle a bit of shredded cheese on top and toast a cutup tortilla to eat this and have had it at least once a day over the past week and a half, weight is coming off fast!"
"The recipe as stated is just ok...really bland. My 5 stars is because I found a new favorite soup out of this starter recipe. I added 98% fat free turkey (added 2 tbsp egg substitue to the meat to make tiny meatballs with minced onion, garlic, cilantro and mint) I then added 2 cups water, 2 tbsp chile powder, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, dash of black pepper and then chopped fresh roasted hatch green chiles. This resulted in a wonderful filling and delicious soup!"
"This was surprisingly tasty. If it was not a "diet" soup, I'd probably only give it 4 stars. The 5 star rating is for ease of preparation and how I would compare it to other soups that I would consider to be in the same category."
"This was so easy to make. I threw it in the crockpot in the morning and it was perfect by dinner. Flavorful, filling and just delicious. DH asked for the leftovers for work tommorow and asked me to make it again this weekend! Thanks so much for the recipe. "
"This recipe was a winner at my house. Even my 14 yr. old son, who first turned his nose up at it because there was no meat, ended up eating a whole bowl. It seems to have endless possibilites with changing spices a little, or adding some meat. This first time I just added a little oregano and basil leaves."
"I made this soup with frozen white corn and frozen mixed vegetables. It was very fast and easy to prepare and had a very good flavor. I did add a can of beef broth to it. I reheated a cup of the soup and added some lean, diced ham to it. That was very good. I will be making this recipe again for noon meals. I took it to work and had it with some good rye bread. Very tasty way to get more vegetables into one's diet."
"This is so easy and versatile. I have made it several times now for an easy nutritious lunch. I make with frozen veggies for added nutrition. For those not on weight watchers I totally reccommend topping with chopped avocado before serving, it really adds a burst of flavor. "
"Couldn't be easier and delicious too! I drained the corn and mixed veggies, and added some shredded beef I had left over from the night before. Fabulous and it seems to get tastier when heating up for the second, third, fourth time. Didn't last long. Went out today and bought three more "batches" to have on hand! Thanks Nicole! Georgeann "
"WOW! What an excellent, hearty stew! And...a minimum of effort! I started this early today in my crockpot. I did add about 1/4 lb. cooked ground beef, 2 bay leaves, and cayenne pepper (my favorite spice). Absolutely, totally unbelieveable! This recipe rocks!"
"This was excellent and healthy too! The taste was yummy, and it made a lot. DH and I have really enjoyed this soup, and it is so simple to make. Thanks for your wonderful recipe."
"Made this up on Sunday and have been eating it for lunch every day. It is just something that I don't get tired of, and it is nice to have something warm instead of the usual sandwich. I used Rotel tomatoes for an extra kick and put and additional blop of salsa on my daily portion. DH has not tried it, but I know he'll like it. Thanks. ingrid in tampa"
