Turkey Chili Taco Soup

While clicking around in the great world of blogs I happened to find this fantastic blog for low fat, low cal recipes, Gina's Skinny Recipes.  It's the perfect site for any of you Weight Watchers folks out there as she also has all of her recipes on the points system.  If you haven't already found it, go and check out.  I was quickly inspired to choose dinners for each night of the week, make my grocery list and head to the store.

This Turkey Chili Taco Soup was on the menu for Monday.  It came together incredibly fast and it was delicious!  The only thing I did differently was add a can of S&W pinquitos beans.  I wasn't precise with the chicken stock, I just added it until I liked the consistency.  I also reduced the amount of bell pepper based on personal preference.  This chili/soup was packed with flavor!  next time your looking for something light and filling, give this one a try.  Enjoy!
