Now with the new changes on WW with the My WW, the only plan this soup will have points on is green, the chicken will have smart points value to them. I love the freedom of these new plans and on blue and purple this Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Soup is zero points. This is a great lunch leftover if you know you have a heavy smart point dinner coming up!
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.
Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Soup Recipe Ingredients:
- Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast-Chicken breasts work great in this; large chicken breasts produce the largest amount of meat to use in recipes. This is also a zero Weight Watchers point food as well. Now you can use another type of chicken, but other cuts may be fatter. Boneless Chicken Thighs are good, but the chicken will be greasy and a bit
- Tomato Sauce
- Trader Joes Chile Lime Seasoning
- Kernel Corn– I used canned corn in this, but frozen cooked corn can be put in this as well.
- Diced Green Chili Peppers
- Taco Seasoning (I used my homemade one -> here)
- Pinto Beans
- Diced Tomatoes
- Chicken Broth– I used Better than Boullion chicken to make my broth. You can use canned broth or even boxed broth. I use fat-free broth to make the chicken healthier. You can add extra cup of water if there is not enough liquid in the crock pot. Chicken stock can also be used.
- Black Beans
- Red Beans
How To Make WW Chicken Taco Soup:
In a large stockpot, bring some water to a boil. You will want enough water to cover your chicken breasts. The water will be used as your broth for your soup.
When your water is at a boil add your seasonings, broth, and chicken breasts to the pot.
Allow the pot with the mixture to boil for about 45 minutes until the breasts are fully cooked.
Remove the chicken breasts from the pot and shredded them. You can do this with a kitchen aid mixer or this time I shredded mine using my bear claws.
Now I used my 8-quart crock, I love that it means the batch is big enough to have leftovers!! Plus you can order one on Amazon so you don’t even have to leave the house, order, and bam UPS man is saving dinner time for you when you use Amazon Prime 2 day delivery! (Don’t have Prime?? You NEED easy online shopping!!)
Spray your crockpot with a nonstick spray and start to open up all your cans.
In a strainer strain your canned corn and your beans and then drop into the crockpot. You can also rinse them off as well.
Place your into the crockpot of your shredded chicken then add in your diced peppers, tomato sauce, and tomatoes.
Slowly add in the broth from your pot until your crockpot is full. You can add more water later if it seems to need more.
Give the soup a good stir in the crockpot and set it to low.
Cover the crockpot and allow your soup to cook on low for at least four hours!!
Serve and enjoy!!
I love that since this is a low point or zero point, I can add cheese, sour cream, or chips to it as well!!
Zero-point dinners are not always the way to go, but finding balance some days is important. If the rest of your meals are high points, this is a great way to fuel your body. Not eating dinner because you used up all your daily or weekly points will not help you in the long run on your journey.
