The chilly temperatures that come rushing in with fall are all that I need to kick start my appetite for soup, and those cravings only increase as it gets colder outside. In Pennsylvania, it gets downright freezing, and soup not only warms my belly, it also consoles me throughout the season and lifts my spirits when everything outside is cold, dark, and covered in snow.
Right around the end of September every year I start hunting down new soup recipes to try out. My favorite type of recipes are those that can be made in the crockpot, which I would cook in constantly if I had my way, particularly because I am not the greatest cook and crockpot cooking is ridiculously simple. But sometimes I want soup right now, or I don’t have the patience to wait eight hours for soup to simmer and get delicious in a slow cooker, or I don’t have the ingredients for a particular type of soup on-hand and can’t get to the grocery store right away. In any of these cases, I am not above breaking out ready-to-serve soup.
Now lining grocery store selves, two new Progresso Light creamy soup flavors–Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese and Chicken Pot Pie Style–are rich and creamy soups packed with flavor, but not with calories. Just 100 calories per serving (about 200 calories per can) and endorsed by Weight Watchers (2 PointsPlus value per serving), Progresso Light creamy soups are a nutritious way to satisfy your hearty soup cravings.
I recently had the opportunity to try these two new Progresso soups myself, and I have to say, they are delicious. Surprisingly delicious, in fact. There were savory chunks of white meat chicken and classic vegetables throughout the Chicken Pot Pie Style soup, and the Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese was full of large pieces of potato. I seriously wouldn’t have thought that I was eating light soup if I hadn’t seen the label on the can myself, purely because of how full it is of hearty ingredients.
