PER SERVING (1 generous cup): 150 calories, <0.5g fat, 850mg sodium, 26g carbs, 3g fiber, 5g sugars, 11g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

So good, it'll make you bark. OK, we have no idea what that means. But it sounds impressive, doesn't it?!

Ingredients:
1 can Progresso Healthy Favorites 50% Less Sodium Garden Vegetable Soup
1 fat-free or nearly fat-free hot dog with 40 - 50 calories (like Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks or Yves Meatless Hot Dogs)
1/4 cup fat-free shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. chili seasoning mix

Directions:
Cut the hot dog into tiny, bite-sized pieces. Spray a small pot with nonstick spray, bring to medium heat, and add hot dog pieces. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, until outsides begin to crisp. Then add soup and seasoning mix to the pot, stir, and continue to cook until very hot. Spoon the soup into 2 bowls, and top each bowl with half of the cheese. Allow cheese to melt and soup to cool slightly before digging in. Mmmmm!

Add soup, and continue to cook until soup is hot. For some added pizzazz, top each serving of the soup with sour cream and scallions just before eating!
