Chicken Taquitos and Refried Bean Soup - WW recipes

Here are a couple of tasty and low point recipes. These are great together (dip the taquitos in the soup) or separately.

Chicken Taquitos- From Hungry Girl

MAKES 4 SERVINGS 4 pts for 2 taquitos
8 small (6-inch) yellow corn tortillas
One 9.75-oz. (or 10-oz.) can 98% fat-free chunk white chicken breast in water, drained well
1/2 cup salsa
1/3 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
Optional: red enchilada sauce, additional salsa, fat-free sour cream, for dipping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
~In a medium bowl, combine the chicken and salsa, and mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
~Remove chicken mixture from the fridge, and drain any excess liquid. Add cheese and taco seasoning, and mix to combine. This is your filling. Set aside.
~Prepare a baking sheet by spraying with nonstick spray, and set it aside.
~Dampen two paper towels, and place tortillas between them. Microwave for about 1 minute, until tortillas are warm and pliable.
~Take one tortilla (keep the rest between the paper towels), spray both sides lightly with nonstick spray, and lay it flat on a clean dry surface. Spoon about 2 heaping tbsp. of filling onto the tortilla. Spread it evenly across the entire surface, and roll tortilla up tightly, so that you have a cigar-shaped tube. Secure with toothpicks and place seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
~Bake for 14 - 16 minutes, until crispy. Allow taquitos to cool for 5 minutes. If you like, dunk in enchilada sauce, salsa, or sour cream!

Refried Bean Soup

WW Points: 1 point per Cup (10 servings)
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cans fat free refried beans
3 cups fat free chicken broth, divided

1. Combine tomatoes, garlic, onion, and 1 cup of broth in a large pan; boil for five minutes, stirring often. (I like to blend the tomatoes up so there are less chunks.)
2. Stir in beans and remaining 2 cups broth; simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring often.
