Have you ever had a soup that was so hearty and satisfying that you couldn’t imagine it was healthy? That’s what our Weight Watchers Chicken Verde Soup is like. Not only it is super delicious and healthy, it is a great freezer meal! It works in your Crockpot for fast cooking, and it can be thrown into a freezer bag for later meals!
Weight Watchers Chicken Verde Soup
I love any meals that can be cooked in my Crockpot and are easy for making as a freezer meal. This throws together in just a few minutes, but can also be prepped for the freezer, thawed overnight, and slow cooked all day for a delicious and an easy to prepare meal everyone loves.
I used chicken I had already cooked and shredded, but you can easily use 3 large chicken breasts with the other ingredients in your freezer bag, then simply shred the meat after it has cooked. Also, I love the Herdez Salsa Verde for this recipe, but you can use any Verde salsa that you prefer.
- 2 cups chicken shredded
- 1 cup black beans
- 1 cup whole kernel corn
- 1 cup Verde salsa
- 1 cup mild salsa
- 6 cups low fat chicken stock
- 2 cups water
- 1 bell pepper diced
- 1 small onion diced
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon white pepper (black pepper is okay if preferred)
- Combine all ingredients in Crockpot and cook on low for 3 hours.
- If using raw chicken breasts in this recipe, cook on high for 4 hours. Reduce setting to low heat, and shred chicken with forks or tongs. Stir the soup well to mix chicken throughout, and cook for an additional hour.
This recipe makes a sizable Crockpot full of soup. I measure it to 8 decent servings. To calculate the Weight Watchers point values, I use the Calorie Count recipe analysis tool for nutritional information and the Calculator Cat tool for figuring point values. Smart Points may vary slightly from what is shown using this tool, so if you want the most accurate account, I recommend you use the Weight Watchers calculator.
Weight Watchers Points:
Classic Points: 4 Points
Points Plus: 6 Points
Smart Points: 6 Points
Serve this delicious Weight Watchers Soup by itself, or top with a sprinkle of cheese, fat-free sour cream, and a crumble of tortilla chips for a delicious meal everyone will love!
