Weight Watchers Soup

Weight Watchers Soups & Ina’s Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingredients
  • For Soup
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can white cannelli beans
  • 1 can of corn or a half bag of frozen corn
  • 1 can chicken (trust me, it is better than it sounds!)
  • 1 12oz jar of salsa
  • 1 box chicken stock
  • For Biscuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/2 cup cold buttermilk, shaken
  • 1 cold extra-large egg
  • 1 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water or milk
  • Maldon sea salt, optional
Instructions
  1. For Soup
  2. Put all of the ingredients in a large stock pot, bring to a boil and then bring it down to a simmer.
  3. Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese if you like.
  4. For Biscuits
  5. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  6. Place 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. With the mixer on low, add the butter and mix until the butter is the size of peas.
  7. Combine the buttermilk and egg in a small measuring cup and beat lightly with a fork. With the mixer still on low, quickly add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix only until moistened. In a small bowl, mix the Cheddar with small handful of flour and, with the mixer still on low, add the cheese to the dough. Mix only until roughly combined.
  8. Dump out onto a well-floured board and knead lightly about 6 times. Roll the dough out to a rectangle 10 by 5 inches. With a sharp, floured knife, cut the dough lengthwise in half and then across in quarters, making 8 rough rectangles. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with the egg wash, sprinkle with salt, if using, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are browned and the biscuits are cooked through. Serve hot or warm.
  9. Tip: I used regular milk instead of buttermilk and they tasted just as good. I would also suggest not adding the salt, it makes the biscuits a bit too salty.
