Here Are Your Ingredients:

1/2 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup low fat feta cheese
6 cups water
6 small red potatoes
3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

Cut potatoes and chicken into small squares. Dice onion and jalapeno. Boil water in large sauce pan. Place potatoes and chicken inside and turn heat to medium. Cook until chicken is fully white and potatoes are easily stabbed with a fork - about 20 minutes. Drain water except for one cup. Place hot water to the side, along with chicken and potatoes. Brown onions and jalapeno for about 3-4 minutes on medium heat in same large sauce pan. Add chicken, potatoes, hot water, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Mix completely. Now add feta, mozzarella, seasonings, beans, and drained stewed tomatoes. Simmer together on medium heat for about 5-8 minutes or until soup is fully warmed.
