Let's talk about this chicken fajita soup. When you think of those classic fajitas at the Mexican restaurant they come with a tortilla, chicken, onions, peppers, and all the taco fixings. It's only 2 smart points per serving with all the 0 point ingredients minus the chicken stock and cream of chicken soup.
Why You'll Love This Soup
The soup is really rich and creamy and the chicken, corn, black beans, and salsa are all 0 smart points. Since fajitas usually come with peppers and onions you could always cook some off on the stove top and add it to the top of the soup with some chips, cheese, or reduced fat sour cream. This soup is definitely a keeper and it almost reminds me of Chicken Tortilla soup.

How much is considered a serving?
That sounds great!
Love how easy this recipe is!! I actually use that taco seasoning on my peppers, onions, and chicken for fajitas and its amazing and easy too! I"ll add a little bit of lime juice and garlic also!! Actually that seasoning is so versatile in my house because I use it in ground turkey for taco night, fajitas, carne asada, salmon .. its the best remade seasoning in a pack!!
That fajita one looks so amazing! Want to try that one!
