Mexican Soup

Saturday, January 8, 2011 |
It's the perfect soup day here in Connecticut. We have a fresh blanket of snow with more on the way this evening. There is little better than warming up with a bowl of soup after all that shoveling.

Mexican Soup
1.5 pounds ground chicken {you can use beef if you prefer}
1 red onion, diced
6 cloves garlic {adjust this to your liking}
1 can green chilies, diced
1 package taco seasoning {we like the hot}
1 cup of water
2 28oz cans petite diced tomatoes
1 28oz tomato sauce
1 can chicken broth {a second can if you want your soup thinner}
2 cans black beans {rinsed well}
1 cup roasted corn {I buy mine frozen at Trader Joe's}


Toppings
sour cream
shredded cheese
avocado
cilantro

Saute the first three ingredients until just cooked. Add the green chilies, taco seasoning and cup of water. Mix together. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for at least 30 minutes. Longer is better if you have the time.
The leftovers make a great lunch for the next day. 

I'm linking up with Quit Eating Out today for her featured Saturday Swap. Take a peek.

I've made something similar to this before. I'm totally making it this week! I bet I could do it in the crockpot?

Yum-o! I love the addition of the avacodo- why didn't I think of that? Sounds delish and the perfect chilly winter day meal.

Jo,
Oh my gosh my husband just asked what cookbook I was looking at!
You are a fabulous cook my dear!
We are all about eating at home and I love that Saturday swap!
Thank you for your comment about the artist I featured.
Stay warm....i'm by the fire doing the same with a good snow covering everything in the bluegrass!

Jo, this looks AMAZING!!! Your a girl after my own heart! I love homemade soup, especially one with avocado!

Sounds so good. I made one last week but without meat and I wasn't too crazy about it. I'm going to give this one a try very soon. In the winter, I could eat soup everyday!! I'm planning to do a post soon with some of my favorite soup recipes.

This looks good Jo! I love anything with avocado especially! :)
I came over from Preppy Pink Croc at your mention of Mex soup! I was asking her about freezing containers and would love to know what you use, I haven't had much luck and would love some recommendations!
Thanks for the "stop eating out" link (or whatever it's called), I became a follower! We don't eat out much, but I love trying new recipes, etc!
Have a great week!
