Tex-Mex Soup the ThermoCouple Way

September 2, 2022

Soup is our real go to meal when it comes to quick food. It’s wholesome and healthy for you too.

I wanted to branch out to other soups, but they were all very – let’s say – not weight loss friendly. Looked great, but when you broke it out they were not.

So, I decided to change things up – as I usually do. So many have asked me how – and this is it.

I managed to get this to MY WW friendly points – 3PP for me 🙂

Cheese and Bacon Rolls - Plain

Tex-Mex Soup

This was originally a Cookidoo recipe, however, I wanted a healthier more WW Friendly version so I changed this recipe a lot. Well the ingredient amounts and the type of protein.
