Ww 5 Can Soup

"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"."

Questions & Replies

  1. How many points would this be now
  2. I see it was 2 points back in 2003 but now in 2017 with smartpoints, how many updated smartpoints would 1 cup be?
  3. How many points?


  1. 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 :))
  2. 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
  3. 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."
  4. 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.
  5. 5 Stars and then some! Wow! Made this yesterday for my wife and I. I NEVER would have imagined that "five cans" could taste so good. I have been trying to lose weight, but I have not been looking for "diet" meals. I have been looking for healthy alternatives to fast food. This is amazingly good. What I actually did was combine this recipe with another, #57009 "5 Cans and a Jar Soup Recipe". I highly recommend it! The added chicken broth and medium-hot salsa and kidney beans (I used one can of red, one white), and used fire-roasted diced tomatoes for additional flavor. A couple of sprigs of basil and a few bay leaves are the only additions I made. Combined, I was blown away. One of the most flavorful soups, -meals-, I have ever made! And really, "no cooking" is necessary! You are really just heating this up to meal temperature. Yes, I let it simmer a good hour or more, until my wife got home from work. I cannot recommend this enough! This is my new EASY, healthy, favorite! And my little dog, a "schnoodle", LOVED it as well! :)


  1. I was looking around for a new recipe for soup - I like to make a big batch in my crockpot and take it to work during the week. Whoda thunk that a WW recipe would be good? This is good, easy, and I was wow'd by the (lack of) calories from fat. I used kidney beans instead of black beans and drained the corn. I think next time I will try it with frozen veggies instead just to get the extra goodness!
  2. At first I didn't care for this, but after a couple of bowls, the soup was tasting good. I added garlic salt and sea salt to improve the flavor. The next time, I will rinse the corn and mixed vegetables and replace the liquid with water as to cut down on sodium. Thanks for sharing.
  3. I substituted a 2nd can of mixed vegetables for the can of corn since there is already corn in the mixed veggies.
  4. Can't beat this for speed. I use canned green beans instead of mixed vegetables and usually add some Italian seasoning blend to punch up the flavor. I prefer kidney beans in it to black beans, but both are good.
  5. Add another 5 star review. This is great to put in a crockpot and go. I usually substitute dark red kidney beans for the black beans and sometimes add canned white chicken. This makes several wonderful winter meals. Thanks for a great recipe.
