Hi everyone! Due to some recent health concerns in our family, I'm totally having to change the way I cook. However, I'm still going to be making the same meals so if you like them, still use them. I'll just be mentioning how I'm changing them to work for us but I'll leave the recipes themselves alone! However, with this, I'm having to end dessert Friday. I'm changing it to once a month! My 7 year old was very sad but he's dealing with it! LOL
Tomorrow we are having Taco Soup for dinner. I love Taco Soup! This is really good served with taco toppings on top like crushed up tortilla chips, sour cream and olives. This recipe is pretty simple. I'm going to use 93% lean ground beef or ground turkey breast depening on which is more affordable when I shop.
Taco Soup With Meat
Makes 12 cups - 3 points per cup
1 lb ground turkey (lean) or extra lean ground beef or cubed chicken
1 envelope dry taco seasoning
1 envelope ranch dressing mix (dry)
1 can corn
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can ranch style beans
While you brown the meat in one pan, combine and heat all other ingredients in a large pot (drain all cans except for ranch style beans). Once the meat is browned and drained add to large pot. When it's at the desired temperature, serve and enjoy! Consistency is very thick. For thinner variety don't drain cans or add a bit of water at the end.
