I’ve said time and time again that I’m not a huge soup fan … but with it getting really cold as of late, I’ve been more and more in the mood for soup.I had picked up a can of Progresso Light Chicken & Cheese Enchilada soup and opted to have this as a side with my dinner.
After heating it up in the microwave (it can also be heated up on the stove) I found it to be on the thicker side. It’s not runny like a normal soup but it’s not as thick as a stew. Flavor wise it’s delicious – slightly spicy (it’s more of a background spice) but deliciously cheesy.The soup has chicken, celery, red and green peppers in it – the label also states it has tomatoes and onions in it, but I couldn’t notice them in the soup.It’s creamy and relatively filling.It has a “homey” vibe to it and I certainly enjoyed it.
A 1 cup serving is 90 calories or 2 points plus values, or the whole can (2 cups) is 180 calories and 4 points plus values.
Out of all the chowders, corn chowder is my only favorite, so when I spotted the Progresso Light Chicken Corn Chowder I picked it up. My initial thought was “a corn chowder that’s point friendly?” Count me in!
It’s not as thick as standard corn chowder, it’s more of a soup consistency, which is understandable considering it’s a light soup – but regardless it’s quite delicious. I added a bit of black pepper which really helped boost the flavor and in my opinion tied everything together. The chicken in it is “meh” as most chicken in canned soups tend to be but it’s not terrible.On the plus side there’s bacon in it … and everything is better with bacon! It’s tasty, hearty and has a little bit of a homemade vibe to it. I quite enjoyed it, which is surprising since I’m not a big fan of canned soups.
Each serving (1 cup) is 100 calories which is 2 points plus, or the whole can is 200 calories and 5 pints plus values.Worth it in my opinion.
