What are the Freestyle Smart Points for this Weight Watchers Cheeseburger Soup?

There are 6 Freestyle Smart Points in each 3/4 cup serving of this Weight Watchers cheeseburger soup. It’s a great option for dinner or you can meal prep this recipe ahead of time and use it for lunches throughout the week.

You can reduce the points on this soup by removing the tortilla chips for the topping. You can also reduce them a bit by using a super low-fat ground beef.

Make sure to recalculate the points using the Weight Watchers online recipe creator (where I do all my calculations) to be sure you get the correct information. Making these two small changes should drop the points to 5 or less per serving though, as a reference point 🙂
