Mexican Bean Soup

Submitted by: ROCKMAMA72

Introduction

This is a nutritional bargain--low in calories, high in protein and fiber, low in fat... it's lightened from a version with "real" bacon, but this is just as good.

Directions

Cook the bacon in a large saucepan, then remove it from the pan to let it cool. Cook the onions, celery and garlic in the bacon grease for about 5 minutes. Add the water/boullion cubes and green chiles and heat until the boullion dissolves. Add the chili powder and hot sauce, then stir in the refried beans. Heat through.

To serve, sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese and some crushed tortilla chips (not counted in calorie total.)
