I was at the grocery store a couple weeks ago and they had samples of taco soup and the recipe to go with it. The soup was so good especially since it was turning cold here. FYI: No longer turning cold it IS cold. I just had to whip up a batch for lunch. Of course I didn't follow the recipe but went hunting to see what I had on had that could make a taco soup.
It turned out delicious, all spice and warmth.
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 can pinto beans
1 can chili beans
1 can corn kernals (confession: I hate canned corn except in soups)
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
2 or more diced chicken thighs or breasts
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
Heat large soup pot over medium heat. Add a little oil and saute the onions till soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Add the chicken pieces and cook until almost done. At this point add everything else and cook until chicken is done. Now it is ready to eat. However, I let it simmer for 3 hours to condense the flavors and thicken it some. Up to you, but so very yummy either way. This would also make a good crock pot soup if you like.
