Description

I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook several years ago. I’ve made a few adaptations, but it remains one of my favorites! Of course, the cheese that I sprinkle all over the top probably ruins the “low-fatness” of it! This is a very hearty meal. We usually eat it with some breadsticks or cornbread. Without cheese on top, it is approximately 4 WW points per 1 cup serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Extra Lean Ground Beef
  • ½ cups Chopped Onion
  • 1-½ cup Chopped Green Pepper
  • 1 can Stewed Tomatoes 14-16 Ounce Can (sometimes I Use Half Ro-Tel)
  • 2 cans Pinto Beans (undrained)
  • 1 can Creamed Style Corn
  • 1 can Fat Free Beef Broth (14 Oz)
  • 1 can White Hominy
  • 2 cans Beef Tamales In Chili Sauce

Preparation

Cook together the meat, onion and green pepper until beef is browned. Add to a large soup pot. Stir in tomatoes, beans, corn and broth (I also add the hominy at this point, but it was not in the original recipe).

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes.

While soup is simmering, remove paper wrapping from tamales and chop into bite-sized pieces (do not cut the tamales in half lengthwise, because this causes the meat to come out of the breading).

Stir in tamales and heat through.

Smells amazing when cooking!! The ONLY thing I altered was adding roasted poblano peppers (2) and roasted jalapeño (1) diced with seeds removed!! An additional flavor with minimal heat and adjustment to the total points!! This is a great soup!!

This is a fabulous soup and I will be making this often. I would slightly change it only by adding 1 can of black beans, 1 can diced tomatoes, and 1 can of corn. I highly recommend this dish. Yummy.
