A taco in liquid form, this delicious Turkey Taco Soup is so hearty and satisfying! Each huge serving is 7 Points, making it a perfect Weight Watchers recipe that’s great for just about anytime. It reheats and freezes well, so I like to double the batch and keep a good supply in my freezer. Feel free to get creative with your toppings, and enhance the flavors even more by adding low fat sour cream, jalapeños, diced red onions, shredded lettuce, fresh cilantro or reduced fat tortilla chips on top. All the fiber and protein make this a very filling dish, but if you want to trim this down a Point or two, you can cut out 1 can of beans. It’s just as delicious either way. Enjoy!
