Weight Watcher's Taco Soup

For original Weight Watcher recipe click here .


1 teaspoon cooking oil

2 garlic cloves

1 yellow onion

1 - 15. oz canned petite diced tomatoes
1 - 15 oz. canned kidney beans
1 - 15 oz. canned pinto beans
1- 15 oz. canned corn
2 cups water
1 package of Ranch dressing
1 package of taco season
1 - 2 lbs. hamburger or ground turkey
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon season or garlic salt
1 teaspoon pepper
*** optional garnishes ~ cheddar cheese, sour cream, corn chips, diced green or red onions.

First,  I add 1 teaspoon of oil to a pot and brown the diced onions.  Right before they are done add 2 crushed garlic cloves to the oil.  Then add the first 4 items to the pot and let it cook on low.  Then I brown the hamburger, I use 1 of the teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of season or garlic salt to the meat.  When that is cooked I drain the hamburger fat and put the meat into the pot.  Now add the other teaspoon of salt and pepper.   You might need to add another cup of water later on, it is up to you.   

I forgot the can of corn and 2 garlic cloves

  6. I love this recipe and have been making it for years. We call it Taco Soup. We also love other chilies so I still make those too! Ommm Yummmm!

  7. Hi Rhonda! Did you know that you are a no-reply blogger? If you go into your blogger settings you can change your email setting so that you can get direct replies to your comments. You may have had it initially set up to receive replies, but some people found that the setting changed when they set up their Google+ account.

  8. Good morning, Rhonda!

  9. Karen~ I have try to fix the problem and can't find anything that says NoReply or anything that says receive replies. I will keep trying and hopefully fix it because I want replies. Thanks for the information.
