Well.........the Yummiest kind...my personal favorite.....is to get out your crock pot, and "cook up" some pinto beans( using dried beans ).
Then I just use half of this portion when I make my soup. .....sometimes I mash them up to create refried beans, or just leave whole......and of course, being a Texan, I do use fresh jalapenos, and cumin, garlc, and fresh cilantro! YUM!! emoticon

One more question - I'm assuming this is the fat free VEGETARIAN refried beans? They're the only ones that are really clean.

Okay, that makes sense. I was just wondering, not questioning anyone or anything....

Yeah... only one can of refried beans, divided among 16 servings. Quite possible...

Use the food caculator here at SP, or consider that all of these veggies make up the calories of 16 cups of soup.....at least that is the size of pot I use. =) I have a calculator and that's how I came up with my totals. ....veggies, water, and beans for protein. =) You don't have to use them.....use whatever protein you prefer.

I'm confused as to how the soup is as low as 50 calories per serving (and healthy) with refried beans in it?? I thought they were full of fat and bad for you....?

even in the summertime....no kidding! =)

here is my favorite recipe for a basic very filling vegetable soup that has about 50cals/cup! Whoa!!
You just can't beat that. If you are trying to lose weight - this is the soup for you!

Laura’s Garden Vegetable Soup

Ingredients:
Saute first 5 ingredients in 1 TB olive oil
1 1/2 cups onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2c apple cider vinegar
2 cups diced green cabbage
2 cans of diced tomatoes

Then add the following......
1/2 cup green beans
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup diced zucchini
Lastly stir in 1 can of refried beans ( I personally like it spicy..being a Texan -- I use refried beans with jalapenos)

Cover in water, and bring to a boil. Simmer till done........maybe 30 minutes! =)

Note -- this soup is versatile -- use whatever veggies you like ....fresh are better, or frozen.
Just stick to your base of the first 5 ingredients. You be creative with the choice of herbs!.....whatever you like!
Only 50 calories a cup! .....DO NOT add meat, broth, or carbs....such as pasta, rice and potatoes......the cals increase quite a bit!! =)
