I am so happy the weather is finally starting to warm up (although today hasn’t been such a good example)!! It is hard to believe that 2 weeks ago it was cold, rainy, and SNOWING! I was off Tuesday (2 weeks ago) and I knew that I would want something warm and hearty for dinner to go with the cold, damp day. Thankfully one of my technicians, Ashley, had just given me a recipe for taco soup and I knew it would be perfect!
1 can corn (don’t drain)
1 can kidney beans (don’t drain)
1 can rotel (I used the hot variety)
1 small can diced green chiles
1 can diced tomatoes
1 lb ground beef, browned
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp minced onion
Add all the ingredients to the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
I simmered mine on the stove stop for a little over an hour and it was delicious! Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, and tortilla chips to complete the meal!
I plugged all the ingredients into MyFitnessPal (see a tutorial on how to do this here) and while I think I under estimated the servings at 6 it still came out to be a good calorie bargin at 249 calories/serving.
