I spotted a line of brand new Weight Watchers Smart Ones soups while at Target. Out of the four options available, I decided to try out the Smart Ones Southwest Style Vegetable Soup for lunch. I am not much of a soup person (particularly canned soups), but occasionally I find myself wanting a bowl so I either have to make a soup or stew or pick up a quick and easy soup that I know I enjoy.
I like the idea of frozen soup because it seems more “homemade” to me. Canned soups taste almost tinny to me, so I tend to avoid those, but I have found a few frozen soups that I have enjoyed and turn into my “go to”. This particular soup was delicious and will undoubtedly be a repurchase for me.
According to the box the soup is “a combination of fire-roasted corn & tomatoes blended with red beans, corn flour, and cilantro all topped with Monterey Jack cheese.” Most notable the soup is advertised as vegetarian and a good source of fiber – thanks to the beans and vegetables. The soup itself was delicious. It was mildly spicy, the cheese made it creamy and it was just overall packed with flavor. I wouldn’t say this is a complete meal in a bowl, but it is something that could be enjoyed along with a salad or sandwich in a guilt free way.
A bowl is 120 calories or 3 points plus values. Quite worth it if you’re in the mood for something warm to go alongside with your lunch or dinner.
Have you tried any of the new Smart Ones soups?
