Taco Soup


Here at the Irons Home we love soup.
Generally it is easy to make and the leftovers are even better.
As a bonus, most are pretty healthy too!

This is one of our favorites!
You will need:
1 can of corn, 4 cans of chili beans, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 pkg of taco mix, 1 pound of either ground turkey or lean beef, and 1 small onion chopped 


First, I cook up the meat. I prefer to use turkey.
It is lean and much better for us and you would never tell a difference!
As it cooks I add in the onion.


Once the meat is cooked add in all the "cans" and stir and add the taco mix with the water it calls for on the package. Let simmer for a short bit and that is it!

You could also cook the meat and toss everything into a crock pot and let it simmer all day on low. 



The house will smell amazing and the leftovers get better each day!
We like to top the soup with tortilla chips and some shredded cheese.
Yummy, easy, and a favorite of ours!
