Creamy Taco Soup (Healthy)

Let me say this right up front – the crappy cellphone photo does not do this soup justice! I forgot my camera at my summer cabin and couldn’t find the old Pentax so there ya go. This soup/stew is truly amazing! I substituted cooked ground chicken for the precooked chicken and didn’t have any lime juice or lime Mrs. Dash, but I don’t think the dish suffered much. This recipe defeats the purpose of eating a “diet” meal because it’s so good you’ll end up eating 2 servings anyway! The Greek yogurt adds just a hint of tang which makes it extra special. This one is definitely going into regular rotation.
