Best Soup Evah!

Y'all my sister has been holding out on me since around Christmas. We were chatting on the phone the other day and she was telling me that she was fixing Taco Soup "again" for dinner. "Wait, hold the phone," I shrieked. "Why do I not have this recipe?" So a few clicks and an email later I have the BEST TACO SOUP RECIPE EVER! Y'all this stuff is soooo good! And, it is soooo easy! So, since I like to share freely, without being held at the proverbial gunpoint over the phone, I am going to post the recipe here.

I dolloped a bit of low fat sour cream and a pinch of sharp cheddar on top of my bowl for lunch--divine! The photo is of my {empty} bowl...didn't take a photo before....but I promise your bowl will look just as empty!



Taco Soup

1 lb. of ground beef or ground turkey
½ a chopped onion
1 can of mild rotel
1 can of corn
1 or 2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 packet of dry ranch mix
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney beans

Brown the hamburger meat and onion in a large pot. Drain. Return to pot. Add ranch and taco packets to meet. Stir together. Pour in remaining ingredients. Do not drain the cans. Add 1 or 2 cans of water depending on how soupy you want to make it. Cover and let simmer for 30 – 45 minutes. You can keep it on low for as long as you want, but it needs to cook for at least 30-45 minutes! Enjoy!


**For those of you that do Weight Watchers, this recipe is about 2 points when fixed with 99% fat free ground turkey** ~Thanks Mandy for the points correction :)

Thanks so much. Sounds great!

Mandy said...

This is one of the best soups! I have been making it for several years now. YUM-O! If you do Weight Watchers, it is only 2 pts per cup. :)

Mandy said...

Consider the 2 pts without sour cream, cheese, etc. Just the soup if you use extra lean ground beef or turkey. This is my FAVORITE recipe! :)

I make this for my family all the time but sometimes I don't use black and kidney beans (makes it a little lighter) and I drain all of the fluid so it is more like a chilli.... yum yum yum!

Yummy! My mom makes this soup. Hers is a little different though. I am going to try this one soon.

Thanks.
