Shredded Chicken Taco Soup- Garnished with Salsa and Greek Yogurt

Shredded Chicken Taco Soup- Garnished with Salsa and Greek Yogurt

I came up with this soup when I was doing Weight Watcher’s, and I liked it because it only cost me 1 Smart Point.  Garnishing it with a mixture of Greek Yogurt and salsa really took it to the next level.  I was originally using Fat Free Greek Yogurt to keep the Smart Points down, but I now think it’s better to use full fat versions of things whenever possible.  

You can cut this recipe down if you don’t want to make a huge pot, but I really enjoy keeping it on hand throughout the week. I also like to freeze recipes like this into batches, so that I can alternate soups rather than eating the same one until it’s gone.

: Super Easy!


  • 5 lbs Boneless, Skinless, Chicken breasts
  • 1- 15 oz can Tomato Sauce (I used one with no salt added)
  • 2 cups of broth (or use 2 cups of the reserved cooking liquid)
  • 8- 15 oz cans of Beans of your choice, rinsed and strained (I mixed black, kidney, and chick peas)
  • 1/2 cup (or about 2 envelopes) Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 1/4 cup (or 1 envelope) Taco Seasoning Mix
  • For Garnish:
  • 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 1/2 Tbsn Salsa
  • Chopped green onions
  • Step 1 Place chicken breasts in a large pot or Dutch Oven and cover with water.
  • Step 2 Boil until center of chicken is no longer pink (Approximately 10-15 minutes).
  • Step 3 Remove chicken and allow to cool, just enough that you can easily shred it. (remove and reserve 2 cups of cooking liquid if you aren’t adding broth).
  • Step 4 Place the shredded chicken into the pot (that should now have no fluids in it).
  • Step 5 Over medium-high heat, toss the chicken with the tomato sauce and ranch mix until coated.
  • Step 6 Add the broth, beans, corn, and the Ranch seasoning mix.
  • Step 7 Heat to desired temperature.
  • Step 8 Garnish each bowl with a mixture of plain yogurt mixed with salsa, and sprinkle with green onions.
  • Step 9 It goes great with chips or avocados, I tossed some Juanita’s tortilla chips on the side.
