Instant Pot Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Soup

I love an easy dinner and this recipe is it! It’s a great way to change up taco night and even freezes well if you have leftovers or make a big batch to stock your freezer with. For this recipe, you’ll need an Instant Pot to make it. If you don’t have one or wanted to just dump and go, you could throw everything in a slow cooker and let it cook on low for about 5-6 hours. Either way will be delicious and a meal the whole family will enjoy!

Easy Chicken Taco Soup

WW – 4 points per serving (about 2 cups) Green Plan

Delicious, hearty soup made with WW in mind and only 4 points per serving. If you want to add reduced fat shredded cheese, fat-free sour cream, or a few tortilla chips, it’s only a few points more. This recipe is made with frozen chicken breasts (for those who, like me, sometimes forget to thaw anything) that are so tender and juicy after just a few minutes in the Instant Pot. Great quick, healthy dinner!

Taco Soup Ingredients

8 Servings

1 can white chili beans
½ can corn
1 can black beans
1 – 32oz package of chicken broth
1 – 10oz can of diced tomatoes and green chilies

Taco Soup Seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp white pepper

Optional: Nonfat sour cream, low fat shredded Mexican cheese, tortilla chips. (These items will add to your points and will need to be calculated separately )

How to Make Weight Watchers Taco Soup

Add white chili beans, rinsed black beans, ½ can of corn, petite diced tomatoes and tomatoes with green chilies, chicken broth, taco seasoning and frozen chicken breast to your instant pot.

Place lid on top, latch into place and turn valve to the seal position.

Press the “manual” button. Use the +/- button to set to 14 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes for it to reach pressure then your count down time will start.

Once your instant pot beeps and lets you know your soup is ready allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. Then carefully change the valve to release.

Once pressure is fully released, carefully remove the lid. Take out your chicken breasts and use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is at least 165 degrees. ( If it is not at least 165 degrees, place it back in your pot and set the time for 2 mins.)

Using two forks, shred your chicken then place it back in your pot and give it a good stir.

Enjoy warm with your choice of toppings!
