Eat Drink & Be Mary: Healthy Taco Soup


Healthy Taco Soup

Well, they said we were going to have a bad winter this year, and it looks like "they" were right.  With snow days in abundance here, all I want is warm, comforting food.  My go-to wintery soup?  Taco Soup.  

+ 1lb ground turkey
+ 2 cans Corns
+ 1 can Pinto Beans
+ 1 can Kidney Beans
+ 2 cans Diced Tomatoes
+ 1 can (6 oz) Tomato Paste
+ 1 packet Taco Seasoning
+ 2 cups Water 

Toppings: (optional)
+ avocado
+ shredded cheese
+ sour cream
+ tortilla chips
+ lime

1. Brown the meat.  
2. While the meat is browing, combine the remaining ingredients in a pot.  Then add the browned meat. 
3. Bring soup to a boil.  Then let simmer for 25 minutes.
4. Add toppings as desired. 
5.  Serve and eat with tortilla chips.

Not only does this soup make me feel like I'm wrapped in blankets, all warm and fuzzy but it's easy to make this taco soup light.   By using turkey meat and minimal sour cream and cheese , you cut extra calories and it still tastes amazing!

What's your favorite winter soup?  Have you ever had taco soup before?  Do you have any tricks to making recipes light?
