Recipe Review: Soup or Sauce (S.O.S.) Mix

Today, I want to share with you another amazing recipe that I found on Pinterest!! I have seen this before, but I have never taken the time to calculate the pointsplus values for this recipe. I wish I had taken more of an interest in this recipe in the past, because it probably could have been saving me money for months.

I make a lot of recipes that require cream of chicken and/or cream of mushroom soup. I always use 98% Fat-Free Cream of Chicken soup, which is about 4 pointsplus for 1 can. I feel like I need to own stock in this product, because I purchase it so often!

I was excited to learn that the recipe below for this S.O.S. Mix is equal to 9 (10.5 oz) cans of cream soup and is only 3 pointsplus per serving!! This recipe is lower in pointsplus values than the 98% Fat-Free Cream of Chicken soup that I normally use. It is also homemade, so there are not any ingredients in this mixture that I did not put there myself.

The real test came when I used it in one of our favorite family recipes. I made Chicken and Rice with this S.O.S. mixture, instead of the cans of soup that I typically use, and it turned out great!! On top of all of that, with the SOS mixture one serving of Chicken and Rice was only 4 pointsplus per serving!

I am excited to continue to use this mixture!!

Ingredients

Combine all ingredients in a recloseable plastic bag or in a plastic container.



Shake all ingredients together until completely mixed.

This is your final product and it is equal to 9 (10.5 oz) cans of cream soup!

Just curious...Are the 3 pts+ for the equivalent of one can of soup or a portion of a can?

I make my own cream of mushroom by just sauting chopped mushrooms and it's soooo good.

I had just given up on WW when I stumbled on your blog via pinterest. I'm so inspired. Thank you so much!!!

What do you do when a recipe calls for one can of cream of mushroom and one can cream of chicken? Do you need to flavor this based on which cream soup it calls for?
