Weight Watchers Southwestern Chicken Soup

"Warm, and filling chicken soup with all the flavors we love, I’ve written the recipe as posted, but made it simpler by just browning the chicken breast whole, putting everything in the crockpot, and cooking on low for about 6 hours, then shredding the chicken just before serving – EASY peasy and delicious, from the Weight Watchers site and only 3 Smart Points per serving” Something is wrong with the site and won't let this show up on my recipes so reprinting in hope it'll fix the issue"
