Betty's StoryMy husband and I are using the Weight Watcher point plus system to loose weight (so easy). There is a free App on I-phone to scan all foods and it tells points for that food. I counted points for this soup and came up with this.
24 1/2 cups in this soup, 13 1/2 cups with 63 points and 11 cups free(0 points) an average of 4 to 5 points per cup. (Can substitue turkey or pork but points would be different)I will put a break down of points in comments.

16 oz-pinto beans, drained/rinsed

Thank you ladies. I done know if I said so but this freezes so good. Just take out and put in microwave frozen and it's ready in about 5 minutes. I put 1 1/2 cup into freezer containers and have a perfect serving ready at anytime
