#PWMF Recipe Contest Dinner Winner: Erin’s Creamy Chicken Fajita Soup

 
 
(Heh…Dinner Winner…ok…moving along…)
 
Dinner! I don’t know
about you but it’s always been a challenging meal for me.

I think it’s the
finality of it all. Like dinner. It means you’re, like, done. With food. For
the rest of the day. (In my head.)

My issues aside, a good,
WLS-friendly dinner the entire family can eat is worth its weight in gold. It
means you don’t have to play short-order cook to your family and you can all
sit down and eat the same thing at the same time (theoretically). That’s
important.

Hillery, our dinner
judge, is a working girl. She manages to pack a lot into her day and now she’s
having a baby! So she was looking for a good dinner that doesn’t take long to
make, that both she and her hubby can enjoy.

Here’s her pick.

Erin’s Creamy ​Chicken
Fajita Soup

Ingredients:

  • 4 C. boneless, skinless chicken breasts , shredded
  • 1 whole onion, diced
  • 1 (28 Oz. Size) Can Stewed Tomatoes
  • 2 (14.5 Oz. Size) Cans Great Northern Beans
  • 2 (14.5 Oz. Size) Cans of Sweet Corn
  • 2 (14.5 Oz. Size) Diced Carrots
  • 8 C. Low-Sodium, Fat-Free Chicken Broth
  • 8 Oz. Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Package of Fajita Seasoning
  • Garlic Powder. Salt, Pepper to taste

Add chicken breasts to
slow cooker. Add enough water to cover meat and cook on low for 6 hours. Take
cooked chicken out, once cool enough shred meat. Set chicken aside.

Remaining liquid can be
added with chicken broth.

Drain and rinse beans,
carrots and sweet corn, set aside.

In stockpot, add diced
onions and saute on low for 1-2 minutes. Add chicken broth, remaining liquid
and greek yogurt. Bring to a boil and stirring constantly until smooth.

Add to stock pot, whole
can of stewed tomatoes, package of fajita seasoning, beans, carrots, sweet corn
and chicken.

Reduce heat, add garlic
powder, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Note: If you have picky
eaters at home, I puree my beans and tomatoes prior to adding.

Additional add ins
depending on tastes:
  • Hot Sauce
  • Diced Jalapenos
  • Diced Green Chilis
  • Use 1 can of Black Beans, 1 can Great Northern Beans
  • Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese for topping
Unfortunately, Hillery had a family emergency (NOT the baby!) that has prevented her from snapping a pic of Erin’s dish, but she assures you all that she loved it and will snap a pic and send it in very soon. I’ll update when I get it.
 
Congrats, Erin! Keep playing with your food!
