Creamy Taco Soup

I have been away from blogger for a while, but this recipe, and the next one I'm going to post, convinced me to come back.  They are SO STINKIN' GOOD, I had to share them. 

Having already emailed the recipe for this soup to my girl, Autumn because I figured her and her hubs would love this rich-tasting, low-cal twist on a cream-based soup, I had to share it with the rest of yous. 

I got the recipe from Pinterest, and it's directly from Muscle Fitness Hers (find the link here).

I followed it pretty closely, with a few changes.  And for me, it served 4 as a main course.  Maybe 7 as a soup/salad combo
Doesn't it look creamy????

"Creamy" Chicken Taco Soup

3/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 15-oz can 50% less sodium white beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes with lime and green chiles
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup frozen or fresh corn
1 1/2 pounds shredded precooked chicken breast
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend
1/ Place 1/2 cup broth and white beans in a blender and puree. Add yogurt and blend again. Pour liquid into slow cooker.
2/ Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
3/ Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 4-5 hours.
Note: Be sure to rinse and drain black beans and chicken well before adding to slow cooker.

This turned out to be kinda spicy! I have no idea where the spice came from, but I'm not mad atcha. 

Another note, this took me 10 minutes to throw together in the crock pot.  If the chicken is already made, it's a cinch. 


  1. I'm so excited to try this! I love a recipe suggestion that includes mostly ingredients I'm already in possession of! Okay, question though... why can't you put the chicken in the crockpot raw? I make this awesome crockpot italian chicken and I put the breasts in, raw & whole. After four hours, I take the individual breasts out and shred them, putting them back in the sauce when I'm done. Just wondering why raw chicken wouldn't work?

    1. I'm sure it would work. I just have weird aversions to meat. I like to be present and accountable for the cooking of it.

  2. Hey stranger! I thought you'd thrown in the towel on blogging. I'm glad you didn't!
    This looks/sounds amazing. Pretty sure the hubs would love it.
