Taco Soup


I don’t know about all of you, but I am really looking forward to fall! I’m excited for fall clothes, carving pumpkins & indulging in any soup craving that I may have! So, with slightly cooler temperatures these past few weeks, I decided that it was close enough to fall to make soup for dinner!

This Taco Soup makes a great weeknight meal. It takes about 30 minutes to throw together, and, as an added bonus, it only uses one pot, so cleanup is a breeze!

Makes (6) 1½ cup servings

  • 1 lb. 93% Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 packet Reduced Sodium Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1 can Black Beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can Pinto Beans, drained & rinsed
  • 2 cans Golden Corn, drained & rinsed
  • 2 cans Diced Tomatos & Green Chilies (such as Rotel)
  • 1 ½ cups Fat Free Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 ½ cup Water

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Place ground turkey and cook until slightly browned. Add packet of Taco Seasoning mix and distribute throughout turkey. Once evenly combined, add black beans, pinto beans, corn & the diced tomatoes and green chilies. Pour in chicken broth and water. Stir well & bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes.

If you would like, top with a Tbsp. of Nonfat Greek Yogurt (tastes just like Sour Cream), chopped green onions & 2 Tbsp. shredded fiesta blend cheese. Serve with ½ oz. multigrain chips and you have a delicious, nutritious & filling meal that the entire family will love!

How delicious does all that cheese look?!

And even better are the stats…

1 ½ cup Taco Soup: 310 kcal, 6 g fat, 10 g fiber (!), 24 g protein

1 ½ cup Taco Soup + 2 Tbsp. Shredded Cheese, 1 Tbsp. Yogurt & ½ oz. Chips:     430 kcal, 13 g fat, 11 g fiber, 27 g protein

Yum. Yum. Yum.

Have a great one!

(And make this for dinner!)
