Playdate and Taco Soup Recipe

We had a fun little playdate. The girls play so well together now that Tally is all over the place. Tally has been hugging lately and went to hug Ann Marie and knocked her down. LOL Here are some of my favorite pics from today.

Ok before I write out this recipe, a few things... I am on Weight Watchers, so it is healthy other than the sodium. I use low sodium stuff in it because of that. It can be altered to you taste on certain things. Original calls for 3 different cans of beans, I use 2. You can also add some lean ground beef, turkey or boca burger. I have done all of the above but for the most part I don't add meat. One of the reasons I like this recipe is because it's my didn't thaw anything meal. LOL

Taco Soup

  • 32 ozs Fat Free Chicken Broth or water
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (I use the ones with chiles in it)
  • 2-3 cans of beans ( ok this is where you can vary to your taste, I use 1 can of Spicy Chili Beans and 1 can of black beans)
  • frozen corn or canned corn (I use frozen, I like corn so I throw the whole bag in)
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning mix
  • 1 pkg ranch dressing mix
  • optional 1/2-1 lb of cooked ground meat

Put all ingredients in large pot on top of the stove, bring to a fast boil and lower temp to low and simmer for 1 hour or put in crockpot on low for 4 hours.

There it is. Quick and Easy! Almost no prep ;)

Almost time for AI, ready to see how everyone does tonight. Not sure who I want to get voted off just yet. I think they all have potential. Even though I think Chris is going to win!
