This recipe for Weight Watchers taco soup is an oldie but a goodie.

I think it got it’s name because it’s a great way for Weight Watchers to satisfy a taco craving in a satisfying, nourishing way.

At least it is for me!

Low in fat and high in fiber, this soup keeps me full for hours.

And it’s easily adaptable to either the slow cooker or stovetop.

The Skinny on This Weight Watchers Taco Soup

There are lots of variations for this easy Weight Watchers taco soup. I rarely make it exactly the same way twice. You can substitute 99% lean ground turkey for the beef. And use whatever variety of beans (pinto, black, kidney) and/or tomatoes (diced, stewed, sauce) you have on hand.

Each generous 1-/3 cup serving has 239 calories and *6 points plus. And if you use at least 93% lean ground beef, it’s Simply Filling (without the condiments).

Enjoy!

Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (at least 93% lean)
  • 1 cup chopped onion (1 medium-size onion)
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) Mexican-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) tomatoes with chiles, undrained
  • 2 cans (14 to 15 ounces each) beans (kidney, pinto, black or chili), rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11 to 15 ounces) corn, undrained
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 package (1.25 ounces) reduced sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 package (1 ounce) ranch dressing mix
  • Optional garnishes:
  • - chopped avocado
  • - light sour cream or nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • - reduced fat shredded cheese
  • - pico de gallo or salsa
  • - fresh cilantro
  • - tortilla chips
Instructions
  1. Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and place it over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and break it up with a wooden spoon, stirring for about 1 minute. Stir in the onion and continue to cook, stirring often, until the ground beef is brown all over and the onion is soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the excess fat.
  3. Transfer the browned beef and onions to the slow cooker (or a soup pot). Add the tomatoes, beans, corn, water, taco seasoning, and ranch dressing mix. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours (or simmer over low heat on the stove for 30 minutes to 1 hour.)
  4. Serve with optional garnishes as desired.

    Hi Martha,
    Just wanted to say thanks for your comment on my Baked Oatmeal Cups a little while back. I didn’t realize until today that you were the Martha from this site which I already liked so much. It’s an honor to have had you take a look at my humble blog!
    Living in Paris, I don’t have access to Mexican-style tomatoes or tomatoes with chiles? Do you have any suggestions on what I could add to plain canned tomatoes to get a similar kind of flavor?
    Thanks,
    Chloé
