Slow Cooker Turkey Taco Soup is perfect for those cold winter nights but still doubles as a Taco Tuesday dinner. I love using my crockpot to make easy dinners, but I also love when it aligns with Weight Watchers, and this soup works out to zero points.

The first time I made this was using Chicken, which works great, but when I had leftover Thanksgiving Turkey, I knew it would be perfect in this. Using the white meat makes this zero points; dark meat will add points to the soup itself, which isn’t bad, just something to know.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Right now you can head on over -> here and sign up for WW for $10 a month for your first six months.

How To Make Turkey Taco Soup
I made this using my 8 Quart crockpot, a 6-quart crockpot would work as well.
Spray your crockpot with a nonstick spray and start to open up all your cans. You can use a slow cooker liner to line your crockpot.
In an over-sink strainer, strain your canned corn and beans and rinse the excess starch with cold water. I only had to rinse my black beans, as the rest had seasonings on them.
Add the beans and corn to the crockpot from the strainer with the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chili beans, and pinto beans.
Next, add the shredded turkey, seasonings, broth, and diced green chilis.
Give the soup a good stir in the crockpot and set it to a low cooking setting.
The cooking time may vary with how your crockpot cooks. I cooked mine for 5 hours and then served it.
Weight Watchers Point Breakdown for Turkey Taco Soup
Now be sure to scan everything using your WW app; some beans will add things that may affect the points, or zero points if the chicken broth isn’t. Everything I used was zero points; turkey that isn’t turkey breast will add in points.
