WW Soup Recipe  
I tried one of their new Zero Point soups last night, and I found the recipe a bit odd...

Mexican-Inspired Zero POINTS-Value Soup
Makes 12 servings
POINTS® value | 0 per serving


  • 2 cups fresh green snap beans, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 small zucchini, cubed
  • 1 cup tomatillos, chopped
  • 1 average jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 14 oz canned diced tomatoes, Mexican-style preferred
  • 1 oz green chili pepper, preferably poblano (about ½ medium pepper)
  • 1 medium Spanish onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup roasted peppers (about 2 peppers), pureed with …
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped


  • Put snap beans, garlic, zucchini, tomatillos, jalapeno, diced tomatoes, green chili pepper, onion, green pepper, cumin, oregano and vegetable into a large soup pot. Puree roasted peppers with chipotle in adobo sauce in a blender or food processor, and add to soup. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, partly covered, for about 10 minutes.

  • Stir in salt, lime juice and cilantro. Serve.
I have underlined all the ingredients which are peppers. For one, that's a lot of the same basic flavor. Snob Hill was also out of chipotle in adobo and I had no idea what to substitute. Then I didn't know if I was meant to find some kind of roasted peppers in a can/jar. Seem like it so I got a can of them, but then I was confused by the poblano pepper. Since it calls for an oz measurement and not a cup measurement I would guess it is also canned? I found one can of poblano peppers and it was ginormous so I didn't get it.
The soup tasted fine but it probably would have been better if the recipe had made more sense. Also if I had added corn. Corn is delicious.

That's a LOT of peppers!! Dude, I would dump in like an 8oz can of Ortega fire roasted peppers and a bell pepper, some corn, and call it a day. Woot.
