Quick and Easy Taco Soup

I created this soup recipe last week when I didn’t have much time prepare dinner.  It’s a great week night meal because it takes just 30 minutes to from start to finish.  You can also add other veggies, such as peppers and onions, without adding to the Points Plus value.  I chose not to add any meat because I didn’t have any thawed at the time, but this would be great with ground beef or turkey, or chopped/shredded chicken added as well.  But, keep in mind that this will change the cooking time and the Points Plus value.

If you’re going to use ground beef or turkey, brown that in your soup pot first.  Continue as below.

Pour 14 oz. of chicken broth into soup pot.

Nex, stir in one can of Fat Free Refried Beans

Add one can Black Beans, along with juices.

Add one can White Beans, along with juices.

Now, you can either add one can whole kernel corn, drained or 1-1/2 cups frozen whole kernel corn.  (I used frozen corn and simply measured it with an empty bean can!)

Now, add 2 cans diced tomatoes with garlic.  I used fire roasted tomatoes with garlic…very yummy!

Finally, toss in 1 tbsp Taco Seasoning.

Stir everything together and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes. 

That’s it friends!  It is THAT simple.

Here’s a more print-friendly version of the recipe, with Points Plus values.
