Weight Watchers Broccoli Cheese Soup
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp butter
3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
2 (1 lb) bags frozen broccoli
1 (10 1/2 ounce) can rotel brand tomatoes and green chilies
8 ounces Velveeta reduced fat cheese product
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion with the butter in bottom of your soup pot until translucent. Add chicken broth, frozen broccoli and tomatoes and chilies together. Simmer for 25 minutes or until veggies are tender. Cube Velveeta and put into soup pot. Simmer just until cheese is melted. (I put about half into a blender and smoothed it out, that thicken up the soup nicely)
note*** This recipe freezes and refrigerates well. I make a large recipe at the beginning of the week and use it to snack on when I get too hungry between meals, this is a great option. I can have a large bowl and some crusty bread with it and still be under 5 points.
I tried this and a big thumbs up from me!
