    1 point Cheese Soup-Courtesy of Crystal

    2 lbs frozen California style veggies
    3 cans chicken broth (I use low sodium)
    1 can Rotel Original tomatoes
    10 oz Lite Velveeta Cheese (cubed)

    Throw the veggies, tomatoes, and broth in a pot. Bring to boil and simmer for 40 min. Add the cheese and let it melt as you stir it. Serve as soup or over a baked potato.

    Really yummy. I'd be careful with the Rotel tomatoes. I naturally can handle VERY SPICY HOT foods, but the EXTRA HOT Rotel is overwhelming . The Original is spicy hot enough. Also, this recipe makes alot of soup so I usually make half of it and it lasts me all week. Even when I 1/2 it, I still use the whole can of Rotel. Enjoy.

    I make 5 can soup all the time.

    1 can sliced new potatoes (drained)
    1 can sliced carrots (drained)
    1 can ff chicken broth
    1 can italian style zucchini
    1 can stewed tomatoes

    Combine all 5 cans in a pot and simmer. Yummy. Check the cans and do the math but it comes out to something like 3 points for the entire pot of soup.

    I have not made this yet so I cannot make any suggestions for tweaking it. Some like it, some think it's boring..... I got this from a fellow WW gal pal.

    Veggie Chili

    2 zucchini, large dice
    1 pint mushrooms, large dice
    2 onions, large dice
    4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    2 large red bell peppers, large dice
    1.5 pounds tomatoes, large dice
    35 oz. canned tomatoes, with their juice
    2 T chili powder
    1 T cumin
    1 T basil
    1 T oregano
    2 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp salt
    cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
    1 can dark red kidney beans, rinsed
    1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
    1 can black beans, rinsed
    cup chopped fresh dill
    2 T fresh lemon juice

    Using nonstick cooking spray, saute first two ingredients in a
    skillet 5-7 minutes, transfer to soup pot. Saute onion, garlic and
    peppers about 10 minutes, transfer to pot. Turn pot on low heat. Add
    next 9 ingredients (tomatoes and seasonings) and simmer for 30
    minutes, stirring often. Add beans, dill and lemon juice and cook 10

    You can serve with chopped scallions and nonfat plain yogurt, you can
    add grated cheese if you want, also can add different veggies, such
    as carrots, celery, etc.

    WW Cramy Cauliflower Soup
    from: Make It In Minutes

    Makes: 6 servings / 8 1/2 cups

    1 T olive oil (*I use Pam spray)
    2 leeks, cleaned and chopped / 1.5 C (*I use 2 medium onions cuz it's more flavorful and less $$)
    *2 stalks celery - chopped
    6 C reduced sodium chicken broth
    2 - 16 oz bags of frozen cauliflower florets
    1/2 C fat-free half & half (*I use an extra 1/2 C of FF half & half OR and additional 1/2C of FF milk to equal 1C total liquid)
    1/8 teasp. ground nutmeg (*I use 1/8t)
    *ground white pepper to taste at table

    1) heat oil in a large nonstick sauce pan over medium heat. Add the celery and leeks/onions and cook until they are softened not browned.
    About 4 minutes. Add broth and cauliflower, bring to boil.
    Cover and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 10-15 mintues.

    2) Remove from heat, slowly add half & half and nutmeg. Puree in batches in a blender or with a hand-held blender stick until desired consistency is achieved. (I like it a little bit chunky, you van reserve some florets too)

    Serving: 1 1/3 C = 1 point
    **if adding more FF milk or FF 1/2 & 1/2 adjusts points. I will run this thru the recipe builder to get the count on the additional milk.

    P.S. I have made my notes in the ingredients listing with an "*"
