Taco Soup

April 12, 2012

 

This is your traditional Taco Soup recipe – so filling and statifying on a cold evening.  Great comfort food!!  Feel free to adjust it to your liking by adding or subtracting key ingredients.

1 pound ground turkey or ground beef   (Packaged ground turkey comes in 1.25 pound packages – this is just fine.)

garlic granules, season salt, no salt seasoning, pepper

1 onion, chopped

Brown ground turkey or ground beef with chopped onion.  Season with garlic granules, season salt, no salt seasoning and pepper – or any of your favorite seasonings.

8 oz. can tomato sauce

2 – 14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes, juice included 

15.25 oz. can kidney beans, juice included

11 oz. can white shoepeg corn, drained (yellow corn is fine too.  We prefer the lighter, sweeter taste of the shoepeg corn.)

Add tomato sauce, tomatoes with the juice, kidney beans with the juice, and the drained corn.

46 oz. tomato juice or V-8 juice

2 T. taco seasoning

2 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. no salt seasoning

1 tsp. salt

Add tomato juice and all the seasonings.

Simmer for at least 30 minutes for flavors to enhance.

Can be topped with grated cheddar cheese or a dollop of sour cream.  Also tastes great with crushed tortilla chips.  If you want it a little more spicy, add a few drops of hot sauce.

Ken loves to add macaroni to his taco soup.  Weight Watcher points for macaroni is not included.

Makes 10 – 1 cup servings

Weight Watchers:  5 PointsPlus per 1 cup serving
