Broccoli Cheddar Soup

One thing people worry about with "dieting" is not getting to eat their favorite foods. But that is honestly just one of the things I love about doing WW. And that is why I love this Weight Watchers friendly Broccoli Cheddar Soup.

Since starting WW back in March I have definitely eliminated some of my favorite foods. But not because I have to. I have chosen to still eat Salt and Vinegar chips, just not the entire bag in one sitting. I still have nachos and taco salad, but I make my own tortilla chips.  And I changed up the Broccoli Cheddar Soup that I make to make it work better for me and my goals.

A few years back I shared this soup recipe, and I love it. It is delicious. But I don't make it regularly because of the butter, flour, and half and half. Then I found a new, weight watchers friendly recipe and thought I'd give it a try.  I am not always positive when it comes to trying healthier recipes because I figure they can never be as good as, or better than a "full fat" recipe, right? But this is. It really is! It only has 4 ingredients and is amazing.

3 cans of Chicken Broth (I use reduced sodium, 14.5 oz cans)
2 pounds of broccoli
1 can of diced tomatoes, no salt added, 14 oz can
1 small can of diced green chilies
10 oz Velveeta reduced-fat cheese

If using a crockpot, combine all ingredients and put on low for 8 hours, high for 4 hours.

If using the stovetop, mix together ingredients except the cheese, simmer on low for approx 2 minutes, until broccoli is tender. Add cubed cheese and simmer until cheese is melted.

This serves 10, and each serving is about a heaping cup
3 freestyle points per serving.
