I have seen a couple of recipes for taco soup, but this is different. I received it from my ww leader. It is very much like a chili and is so easy. My family loves it and I love it topped with 1 tbsp low fat sour cream.
This is a soup that I have concocted under the inspiration of 4 different recipes, and out of the sheer, selfish desire to satisfy my childhood cravings! I took what I liked from each, discarded what I didn't, and added a few what-nots that I craved. My 4 kids have always been leery of vegetable soup, but when they tried this version based on my own particular favorites, it was "4 Thumbs Up!" You can't beat those odds...:)
When I had my liver transplant in Denver, CO there was a Gunther Toody's Diner across the street from the hotel where I stayed. There was a Black Bean Soup on the menu that I just loved. After coming home to Oklahoma, I have searched, in vain, for a Black Bean Soup that came even close to what the diner served. I finally searched recipes and have come up with my version that best copies Gunther Toody's.
A Dom Deluise recipe. This actually dates back to the Depression era. It's inexpensive, tasty and good for you.
Make sure you use uncooked rice in this recipe.
Serve with additional grated cheese.
Note: I've read the reviews and adjusted the liquid.
Another cooking class recipe. This is a lovely tortilla soup with homemade tortilla strips. The things that make this recipe a little different from the others is the tomato sauce, rice, cilantro and limes. I'm not a big cilantro fan but I loved it in this recipe. I've found that you don't have to flip the tortilla strips if you use foil on the bottom of your baking sheet. Also, the rice is partially cooked so as to not overcook the rice while simmering in the soup. Prep time is if you already have cooked chicken and rice.
This is adapted from a recipe I found on the Weight Watchers site. The original recipe calls for cooking in a crockpot. Instructions for the crockpot version are included at the bottom. It makes about 5 servings--not a huge potfull.
This is from one of those cookbooks you purchase at the check out stand at the grocery store. I've adapted it to our families tastes. Great for a quick and easy weeknight supper. This can also be made in your crockpot and cooked on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
I found this at another web site. I made changes to make it less spicy, more flavorful and more "Tuscan". My husband loves this so much he reheats it for breakfast! Some crusty bread and a glass Italian red wine, " Mama Mia " what a meal!
This soup is quick to fix on the stove top and easier yet to fix in the slow cooker! Great flavor and chock full of vegetable. I love the okra, but when I am serving this to non-okra fans, I will substitute 2 c. of frozen peas for the okra during the last 15 minutes of cooking. I am always asked for this recipe and never have leftovers, though this makes 10 servings!
This is so good to serve on these below 0 degree days we have been having. A real comfort food for me. I have also chopped up turnips and added along with the other veggies. Serve with a nice crusty bread.
A truly delcious soup that we accompany with hot crusty bread. Also, in order to reduce the cooking time, you should cut your potatoes and chicken into smaller pieces. However, I wanted to leave the recipe in its original form as it was given to me.
I strongly suggest to prepare this soup a day in advance and chill, the flavors intensify, you may adjust all amounts to taste --- this makes quite a lot of soup you may reduce amounts if desired or freeze for the next meal --- you will love this soup!
