    Okay, so this is a soup not the burger Jimmy Buffett was singing about but it has all the fabulous flavors of a dreamy cheeseburger! And, you don’t even need to fire up the grill. The skinny for 1 serving is 207 calories, 3.8 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. It’s such a fun soup with a whole lot of flavor. Don’t be surprised if it becomes your most requested soup!


    • 1 pound extra lean ground beef (I used Trader Joe’s 96/4) or ground turkey
    • 1½ cups onion, chopped
    • ¾ cup celery, diced
    • ½ cup carrots, diced
    • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    • 1½ teaspoons dried basil
    • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 (14.5 oz) cans Swanson’s reduced sodium chicken broth (4 cups)
    • 1 cup reduced-fat milk (1%)
    • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, not drained
    • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
    • Topping
    • 6 tablespoons reduced-fat cheddar cheese
    • Ketchup
    • Yellow mustard
    • 1 dill pickle


    1. In a large nonstick pot or deep pan, brown the ground beef. Stir to break up into a crumble. Remove from heat, pour into a colander to drain the fat. Set aside.
    2. In the same pot, add the onions, celery, carrots, garlic and basil. Saute for about 5 minutes until vegetable are soft. Stir in the browned beef and flour, stirring to coat the meat. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the broth, milk, tomatoes and potatoes. Bring to boil, turn heat to simmer, cover and cook for about 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
    3. To serve: Ladle soup into individual bowls. Top each with 1 tablespoon cheese and a little ketchup, mustard and chopped pickle. These toppings really add to the cheeseburger flavor!
    4. Makes 6 main course servings (1½ cups each)
