Taco Soup

It's still been cold here in LA and with weather like this I always turn to soups to warm my soul. (Or at least my tummy!)  Do you feel that way?

They are easy to make, and soooo good for you.

This is a great dish, taking the flavors of one of my favorite food, tacos, and putting them in a soup.  It comes together quickly, so you can certainly make this up during the week when time is short.

Hope you enjoy this, the flavors blend nicely.

To make, you will need:  Ground Sirloin, onion, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of red kidney beans, tomato juice, cumin, garlic powder, taco seasoning (use my homemade seasoning here:  Homemade Taco Seasoning) and beef stock. 

In a large pot add oil and heat on medium.  Add onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften. 

Add ground sirloin and cook 8-10 minutes until cooked through.  Break up meat in to pieces while cooking.

Add the tomatoes, beans, tomato juice, spices, and stock.

Bring to a boil.  Turn heat down and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.

Look how yummy!

Serve with your favorite garnishes!  Enjoy!
