Taco Soup

We love anything that is even remotely Mexican at our house.  I love anything that involves little to no work.  This soup combines both!

Here's what you need:
  • 1 large onion, chopped 
  • 1 lb uncooked 93% lean ground beef (optional)  

  • 15 oz fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth (vegetable broth works fine, too)  

  • 15 oz canned yellow corn   

  • 15 oz canned black beans    

  • 15 oz canned Great Northern beans (can substitute chick peas if you like them) 

  • 15 oz fat-free canned refried beans  

  • 30 oz canned diced tomatoes   

  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning mix (or 1 packet if you don't buy in bulk!)   

  • 4 oz canned diced green chiles    

Here's what you do:
  1. Saute onion & ground beef in a large soup pot until tender.
  2. Add all other ingredients & stir.  Do not drain any of the ingredients.
  3. Simmer for 30-40 mins.  Makes about 13, 1 cup servings 

Here's what I have learned that may or may not be useful to you:
  • You can let it simmer much longer if you want (just cover it) & it would probably do great in the crock pot, but I haven't tried it.
  • Delish with 1/4 c 2% milk shredded cheese + 15 baked Tostidos
