(151 calories | 5 0 0 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I love black bean soup. What’s not to love? It’s a Weight Watchers dream.
Hearty. Delicious. Low in Points. And cheap and easy to make.
This easy slow cooker black bean soup has just 4 ingredients – canned black beans, salsa, vegetable broth and cumin.
I cut the recipe in half and cooked it in the slow cooker, which can be left unattended for hours without bubbling over, instead of on the stove.
