Anyone have a really simple recipe for Taco Soup? I want to make some and put in the freezer. A friend has a recipe that sounds a little complicated and she puts cream cheese in hers. Not sure how well that would freeze. I had an old Weight Watchers recipe, but can't find it. Thanks

Nice recipe. I printed it out and the wife said she would do it. She likes using a crock pot. Now for dessert! This actually works and is real moist, just eat it out of the cup around the campfire.

Cream cheese or dairy will not freeze well. When it thaws, it separates

It hurts to see so many processed foods used. I've done this tortilla soup for years. Simple, fresh, and yes, it can be frozen or canned (with a pressure canner). This soup isn't as heavy but it quite delicious.

Tortilla Soup
Portions: 2 Portion Size: about 10-12 ounces depending on add-ins

Olive oil or canola oil, 2 tablespoons
Onion, medium dice (1/2 inch cubes), 1 medium-sized yellow (sweet) onion (about a cup and a half)
Celery, medium dice, 1 rib (about 3/4 cup)
Green Onions, white parts only (save the green parts for later) about 6
Pepper*, medium dice, about 3/4 cup. *Jalapeno if you want it spicy, green bell if a milder version is desired.
Garlic, minced, 3 cloves
Chicken stock, preferably homemade but a low sodium canned stock (NOT broth) will be fine. 2 cups (or 1 15 ounce can)
Tomato, diced, about 3/4 cup (1 medium-sized tomato)
Chicken, cooked and diced, about 10 ounces, that's 2 average-sized boneless/skinless breasts. Grill and cool them first for the BEST flavors!
Oregano, 1 teaspoon if dry, about a tablespoon if fresh
Salt and paper to taste
Cilantro, chopped, about 1/2 cup
Limes, sliced, 1
Tortilla chips, as desired

1. Heat oil over medium in a soup pot. Add onions, celery, peppers and green onion bottoms. Saute over medium heat until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 2 minutes more.
2. Add chicken broth, tomato, and diced cooked chicken. Add oregano and adjust the salt and pepper. At this point, it can be canned or frozen.
3. To serve, garnish with fresh cilantro, fresh lime, and tortilla chips.

Hominy can be added, and of course, it can be made as spicy as you like. If you don't like cilantro, parsley can be substituted.

This is the same as a Lava Cake or a Fallen Chocolate Souffle. It goes by many names and can be quite delicious. The key is to avoid poor cocoa like Hersey or Nestle and use high-quality cocoa. The other thing we'd do a little differently is to substitute butter (unsalted) for the oil and melt the butter in warm milk before mixing all the ingredients together. It's a bit richer but oil works just fine. Just make sure it's a neutral flavored oil and not olive oil.

Y-guy,my wife made this tonight for dinner and it was great. She substituted ground turkey for the ground beef and hot chicken sausage for the chorizo. It was just what I needed after spending most of the day snowblowing the 30" of snow Mother Nature gifted upstate NY with. We will definitely be making this again.

My go-to recipe for Taco Soup is from my Weight-Watchers days:

1 pound lean ground beef, at least 93% lean, browned
1 cup chopped onion (1 medium-size onion)
1 can (14 to 15 ounces) petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10 ounces) tomatoes with chiles, undrained aka Rotel
2 cans (14 to 15 ounces each) beans (kidney, pinto, black or chili), rinsed and drained (I use kidney and black)
1 can (11 to 15 ounces) corn, undrained
2 cups water
1 package (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning

I put all in my slow-cooker for 2 or 3 hours
