Quick and Healthy – Taco Soup

It rained here,….sort of. It was dark, windy, and raining south of Midland/Odessa when I left work. It rained for a good 5 minutes and then it stopped. Just like that. You couldn’t tell on the streets or side walks that we’d received any rain in our neighborhood. I guess I should be thankful for 5 minutes of rain, it’s better than no rain at all!

Inspired by the cloudy evening, I decided to make one last stew before temperatures are in the 100’s for the rest of the week.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey meat
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of red kidney beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato paste
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 small can of green chilies
  • 1 packet of Taco Seasoning (low sodium)
  • 2 cups of water

Directions

  1. Drain and rinse the black beans and corn before combining with full can of kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, green chilies, and taco seasoning. Stir well and let simmer.
  2. Saute chopped onions and ground turkey until turkey is cooked through.
  3. Add meat and onions to the mixture and add 2 cups of water.
  4. Allow to bubble and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve with cheese and corn chips.

 

*I use lactose free cheese and a gluten free corn chips. This helps keep my allergies in check as well as makes the recipe a bit healthier!
