Taco Soup

  • Yield 6 servings

Packed with fiber, this soup is a snap to make.

For a less spicy soup, substitute 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can chopped tomatoes with juice for diced tomatoes and green chiles.

Ingredients

1 pound ground sirloin
2 -- (10-ounce) cans diced tomatoes and green chiles with juice
2 -- (11-ounce) cans whole kernel corn with juice
1 -- (15-ounce) can pinto beans with juice
1 -- (15-ounce) can kidney beans with juice
1 -- (4 1/2-ounce) can chopped green chiles, undrained
1 -- (1-ounce) package original ranch salad dressing mix
1 -- (1 1/4-ounce) package taco seasoning mix

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, over a medium-high heat, cook the ground sirloin until done, about 5 to 7 minutes.  Drain any excess grease.  Add the tomatoes and green chiles, corn, pinto beans, kidney beans, green chiles, ranch dressing mix, and taco seasoning mix.  Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and cook 5 to 10 minutes or untl well heated.  If soup is too thick, add water.

Note:  Try ground turkey breast in place of ground sirloin for a low-fat protein substitute.  To lower sodium, use "no salt added" canned products and rinse beans before adding.
