Progresso and Camobell's soups are having what seems like an advertising war, but to tell you the truth, I'm a fan of certain soups from both brands. From Campbell's, I like Campbell's Select Harvest Light Vegetable Beef & Barley Soup and Campbells Chunky Healthy Request Classic Chicken Noodle Soup (just to name a few), and from Progresso, Progresso Reduced Sodium Italian Style Wedding Soup and Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice 45% Less Sodium Soup. Today, I decided to try Progresso Light Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken Soup after seeing the appetizing picture on the front: chicken, rice, corn, and black beans
I really enjoyed this soup. The chicken is tender and flavorful (maybe that's the salt talking), and the combination of rice, corn, and black beans is divine. My only complaint was the fact that there seemed to be a high broth-to-stuff ratio; I wish Progresso would find a way to bulk this soup up!
Each 8-ounce serving of Progresso Light Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken Soup provides 80 calories, 1 gram of fat, 28% of the daily value for sodium, 2 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of protein. There are 2.5 servings in each can, so if you eat the entire thing, you'll be getting 200 calories, 70% of the daily value for sodium, 5 grams of fiber, and 15 grams of protein.
The soups in the Progresso Light line are 1 Weight Watchers Points each, and the ingredients list is filled with easily recognizeable ingredients .
I picked up a can of Progresso Light Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken Soup for $2.79 at the grocery store. While I wasn't thrilled with the sodium content, it was tasty and makes for a great light lunch or dinner addition.
