My Favorite Soup!
Fall and winter mean it's soup season again. My favorite soup is Taco soup. It has the flavor of chili but yet its a soup. I took the recipe from allrecipes and modified it a little, every time I make it it's different. Here is the recipe for my last batch:
1/2 lb. browned ground turkey
2 15 oz. cans of diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 15 oz can red kidney beans
1 15 oz can of Mexican beans
1 cap full of the Gluten Free Pantry taco seasoning
1/2 cup of chopped onions
3 tbsp. butter
1 cup frozen corn
2 can of water (rinse out tomato cans into soup)
In a stock pot melt butter and saute' onions, I usually add a 4 oz can of green chili's but I was out. Add all the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1/2 hour to hour. You can add more beans and tomatoes to stretch this meal without effecting the taste. You can use your crock pot too but saute' the onion and chili's if your using them to bring out the flavor first. Serve with corn chips or Frito's. If your not a dairy free house you could top with cheese or sour cream. I'd give it a 10/10, its yummy! (It also freezer well!)
A few tricks to make soup easier and more fun to eat for kids is coffee mugs and straws cut to the proper height for the mugs. Our kids can't have this soup but they eat chicken soup and love coffee mugs, it make a simple meal more fun and the straw makes it less messy.
