I'm a huge fan of easy soup recipes that are also low in points for my Weight Watchers journey. As I transition to eating more whole foods and fewer low-fat items, I am looking for recipes that are satisfying but still manage to stay low in points. This is one of my new favorite options. I use real sour cream, but you can easily use the zero point nonfat Greek yogurt instead if you prefer.
We use the Instant Pot DUO60 6-quart 7-in-1 for most of my Instant Pot recipes, including the one below. Any electric pressure cooker will work for this recipe, just make sure it is large enough and you follow the manufacturer's directions.
