Taco Soup

"Tacos are fun, but require a lot of prep and clean up. So we took every ingredient in a taco and mixed it into an easy soup." - David Tip: To quickly and safely cool the soup, place the pot in an ice water bath in your sink and stir it to release the heat.

Ingredients

  • 1

    Tbsp olive oil

    (16-oz) bag frozen chopped onions, red peppers, and green peppers mix, thawed

  • 2

    lbs lean ground beef

    (1.25-oz) packs low sodium taco seasoning

    tsp ground black pepper

    tsp crushed red pepper

    cups low-sodium beef broth

Directions

Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat in a 5-quart pot. Add the bag of thawed onions and peppers, and ground beef. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 8–10 minutes. Add the taco seasoning packs, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Stir until the meat is evenly coated. Pour in the cans of tomato sauce and the beef broth and stir until evenly combined. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chopped cilantro, stir, and serve. Top each bowl of soup with a dollop of sour cream and some crushed hard taco shells.
