    Thanks for your help on this recipe. Please note that I have edited my original post to change the amount of salsa. I used a 16 oz. container of fresh salsa (no oil) from the refrigerated section of the market. This changes the recipe from one cup of salsa to two.

    By the way, please try this recipe. It is a fantastic 0 point soup (you may want to start counting points if you eat several bowls) and a wonderful way to get your vegetables "in"...

    Should I post this in the recipe section also??

    Thanks again for your help,
    C.

    Please do post it in the Soups, Stews and Chowders Recipe Forum.
    It sounds great. Here's the recipe with 2 cups of salsa from MC. Doesn't change it much. The salsa in MC's database is 10calories per 2 tbs. If your salsa is different it may vary the NI a bit, but if it's all 0 point ingredients I wouldn't worry about it.
