A Quick Taco Soup Recipe

Posted by The Delightful Gourmet at 1:50 PM

My good friend, Miss G. gave me this wonderful Taco Soup Recipe that is easy, healthy and family friendly.

My kids love this recipe so much that next time I make it I will double it up and have more leftovers.

We like to eat the soup the first night with Organic Corn Chips from Costco. On the second time around, we have drained the liquid and put it right on top of salad for a quick and nutritious Taco Salad. Miss G. says she like to use it the second night for tacos.

Don't be fooled by this simple recipe, it really tastes delicious.

Quick and Easy Taco Soup

1 lb of Ground Lean Turkey (you can use hamburger or shredded chicken, also)
1 Medium Onion
1 pkg Taco Mix
1 can Kidney beans (do not drain)
1 can Black Beans (do not drain)
1 can Corn (do not drain)
1 can Diced Tomatoes

Brown your meat and onions. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Then simmer until you are ready to eat.

For Garnishes:
Sliced Olives
Sour Cream
Corn Chips

I hope your family enjoys this as much as we do.

I can't wait to try this. My family will want cheese on it for sure.

This would be great with chorizo as well. I will try this and let you know what my family thinks.

That's a great idea to use the same dish the second night! My husband hates left overs so this is a good way to "hide" the left over soup. :) Great recipe! Keep them coming.

Hi Heidi,
I visited your blog. It is adorable. I love your retro graphic. That is exactly how I felt when I first began cooking. Very funny.

Your rosemary chicken looks really delicious. Do you take your own photos. Makes me want to get off my blog and go makes some chicken for lunch.
