Once the weather gets cold, all I want to do is dig into bowls of soup and comfort food. I have mentioned this so many times before and I know you’re all on the same page with me.

Sometimes a girl just needs some soup.

I recently received a copy of Trim Healthy Mama’s Trim Healthy Table from bestselling authors (and sisters!) Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett. It is chock full of delicious recipes to help you learn how to cook healthy.

It also includes recipes for cooking for big families. No more trying to batch up if you have a lot of kids or if you want to cook and freeze.

One of my “soup problems” is that I crave cream soups. I think they are the tastiest but they definitely are not the healthiest.

The Chicken Fajita Soup from Trim Healthy Table is the perfect answer to that problem. It includes some less-fat cream cheese which gives the soup the most delicate creaminess.

It’s the perfect answer to my creamy soup cravings.

Also, its a slow cooker recipe. When you have to cook for a whole table, your slow cooker becomes your best friend. I love prepping a meal, letting it cook and then being able to spend time outside of the kitchen.

All you need to do is prep your ingredients and throw them all into a slow cooker (except the cream cheese and lime wedges). After about 6 hours, remove some of the broth and blend it with the cream cheese.

Six hours is a lot of time out of the kitchen!

Grab some forks to shred the chicken and the voila! A delicious healthy soup, ready to eat with minimal time in the kitchen.

That’s my favorite kind of recipe!

How many servings does this make as the nutrition info seems way off? I’ll have to run it in MFP or something like that to calculate I guess.
