Taco Soup

Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite simple soup recipes. My mom used to make this when I still lived at home and since I’ve moved out, I’ve been making it on my own.

What you need:

  • 1 64 oz bottle of low sodium V-8 juice
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 2 packs of taco seasoning
  • 1lb of turkey (or beef, whatever you prefer)

In a large pot, add the turkey meat and one pack of taco seasoning. Cook the turkey until it is brown, then add in the V-8 juice, tomatoes, corn, black beans and the other pack of taco seasoning. Stir the mixture and let simmer. Once the mixture is thoroughly heated, eat and enjoy.

I like to top this soup with corn chips and cheese.  For a vegetarian alteration, leave out the turkey and double the beans if you prefer. If you’d like to add a little kick to your soup, mix in a can of Rotel.

The best thing about this soup is that it’s a one pot meal. It’s quick and easy and very tasty.

  1. Oh wow this sounds really wonderful! I will have to make some for dinner one of these days. Warm super is the best during the chilly evenings up here on the mountain I live on.
