Tamale Soup

by 2boymom on September 13, 2009 in Soups, Stews
Servings: 6



I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook several years ago. I’ve made a few adaptations, but it remains one of my favorites! Of course, the cheese that I sprinkle all over the top probably ruins the “low-fatness” of it! This is a very hearty meal. We usually eat it with some breadsticks or cornbread. Without cheese on top, it is approximately 4 WW points per 1 cup serving.



 1 pound Extra Lean Ground Beef
˝ cups Chopped Onion
1-˝ cup Chopped Green Pepper
1 can Stewed Tomatoes 14-16 Ounce Can (sometimes I Use Half Ro-Tel)
2 cans Pinto Beans (undrained)
1 can Creamed Style Corn
1 can Fat Free Beef Broth (14 Oz)
1 can White Hominy
2 cans Beef Tamales In Chili Sauce

Cooking Method

Cook together the meat, onion and green pepper until beef is browned. Add to a large soup pot. Stir in tomatoes, beans, corn and broth (I also add the hominy at this point, but it was not in the original recipe).

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes.

While soup is simmering, remove paper wrapping from tamales and chop into bite-sized pieces (do not cut the tamales in half lengthwise, because this causes the meat to come out of the breading).

Stir in tamales and heat through.
