In January, I threw together a chili soup.
Then the other day, one of my Twitter friends tweeted about making taco soup.
It is definitely soup weather here so I threw a taco soup together too.
Kat's Taco Soup
150 grams hamburger
1/2 tablespoon oil
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 taco mix packet (I used McCormick's Hot)
1 can diced tomatoes
2.5 cups water
72 grams garlic and herb cream cheese
Brown your hamburger in the oil with the onions and red bell pepper.
Add the water, taco mix, can of tomatoes and carrot.
Add the cream cheese when your carrots get soft or to the tenderness that you like, I like mine with a little crunch.
The cream cheese will melt into the soup and thicken it up a bit.
Serve with tortilla chips.
NOTES: This was so easy and delicious. I think if you make this thicker (less water), you could use it as a topping for nachos. I didn't add any salt as the seasoning packet & cheese have lots already.
p.s. I'm sending this to Deb for her Souper Sundays, a great event with soups, salads & sammies.
