This Weight Watchers Taco Soup has zero Freestyle SmartPoints! It can be made in your crockpot or cooked in just thirty minutes on the stovetop with all the flavor of a traditional taco soup, but good for you!
Today I would love to chat about those days when you realize its only 4:00 PM and you have already eaten all your points. Ugh. It happens more often than I would like to admit, but sometimes it’s just reality. Temptations pop up, lunch plans change, someone brings girl scout cookies to work….you get the idea. I would love to know what your strategy is for days like that. On the old plan, I relied almost exclusively on salads and veggie soup, but on the new plan there are so many more options. What do you eat on those days? And even if you aren’t on Weight Watchers, we all have days where we over indulge during the day and contemplate trying to make it through the last four hours of the day on nothing but lettuce.
For me, I like to have some easy low point/healthy options available at all times in the freezer and this zero point taco soup is topping the list as one of my favorites. It’s super filling, packed with fiber and protein, and tastes amazing. It’s seriously good. Plus if you have some points to spare, you can add things like cheese, baked tortilla chips, or avocado on top to really take it to the next level.
Another thing that makes this Weight Watchers Taco Soup the best is that it couldn’t be easier to make. Other than the onion and garlic, you are just dumping ingredients into the slow cooker and walking away. You can use almost any combination of beans you like and feel free to switch out the protein. Ground turkey or chicken are delicious in this recipe, just brown it before adding it to the slow cooker. If you aren’t worried about keeping it zero points, you could also use ground beef or chicken thighs. Or go for a veggie version and leave the meat out entirely for some extra beans.
