If your New Year’s Resolution is to eat better, there’s nothing like starting the year with one of our favorite soup recipes. Hearty and Healthy Taco Soup is a family favorite that’s quick and oh-so easy to make.  (We almost feel guilty about that). It’s hearty and filling and yet also low calorie & healthy. Give it a try and don’t admit how easy it was to make… shhh, let’s keep that between us!


These are the Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 Chopped Onion
  • 1 Package Ground Turkey 18 oz.
  • 1-2 cans of Diced Tomatoes (I used petite diced)
  • 1 can Diced Green Chiles 4 oz.
  • 2 cans of Beans: kidney, pinto, black, white (use your favorite) or a mix
  • 1 bag Frozen Corn
  • 1 pkg Taco Seasoning
  • 1 pkg Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1 box  Chicken Stock 32oz.

Brown the ground turkey & diced onion. Season with taco seasoning mix. Add the rest of ingredients, bring to low boil and simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

Now the fun part, ladle into a bowl & add your favorite toppings. Or you can make a topping bar & let everyone chose their favorites: Shredded Cheese, Sour Cream, Chopped Cilantro, Diced Avocado, Mild Picked Jalapeños, Tortilla Strips, Sliced Olives, Hot Sauce. Enjoy!
