2-Point Weight Watcher Taco Soup

I literally "stole" this recipe from my neighbor, Mel a month or so ago when she was organizing her recipes!!! I have been dying to try it so yesterday, I finally got around to making it (with a few minor changes)! And it was YUMMY! The best part, it's only 2 points for ONE CUP of soup! And left overs can be frozen to zap in the microwave for a quick lunch or dinner later on! Woohoo!

What You Need:

1 lb ground turkey, ground sirloin, or lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1 (1oz) envelope Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix, dry
1 (1oz) envelope Taco Seasoning mix (hot or mild), dry
1 (16oz) can pinto beans
1 (16oz) can chili beans (hot or regular)
1 (16oz) can whole kernel corn
1 (8oz) can diced Mexican-style tomatoes
1 (8oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (4oz) diced green chillies (mild or hot)

**Note, I subbed a can of Hunts Tomato Sauce for the tomatoes since D wont eat the things**

1. Brown meat with onions and garlic and drain.
2. Mix ranch dressing and taco seasoning into meat.
3. Without draining, add all of the other ingredients
4. Simmer 1 hour or in crock pot on low as desired, stirring occasionally.

Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped black olives, and crackers or Fritos!
