Fun Soup

I know it has been far too long since I last posted here!  Please don't give up on me.  I certainly have not given up.  I have about 8 pounds left.  EIGHT!  Do you think I can do that before the holidays are over?  Meh, me either.  Not because I lack confidence but because there's not much time left!  So I would like to lose 5 pounds by the end of the year.  Okay...now onto that Fun Soup.  If you are not a bean person this recipe is not for you.  But worry not, I will be posting others that are not bean filled.  If you like beans...this yummy soup is for you!  At two points per one cup you can't get a tastier deal.  Two points in calorie land would be in the neighborhood of 100-150 calories. 

Ingredients:

1 can fat free chicken broth
1 can corn (drain)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can fat free refried beans
1 jar of salsa (it doesn't specify mild, medium or hot, but I imagine the choice is yours)
1 can black beans (rinse and drain)
1 can of chicken or fresh cooked chicken breasts.

Are you ready for how hard it is to make?

Heat all together in a pot.  It gets better each day.   

This soup is super good.  Perfect for a cold day.  Tonight I made hot dogs for the kids and I had the soup for dinner.  Easy (since it was already made, thanks mom!) and very satisfying.
