Taco Soup
Print
Recipe type: Soup
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground buffalo (has less fat than chicken/pork and is very high in iron!)
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 can of Rotel
  • 1 pkg low sodium Taco seasoning
  • 1 pkg powdered Ranch dressing
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Brown meat with onion and pepper (if you use buffalo, there will be no fat to drain). Add the rest to the pot and simmer for an hour.
  2. I serve with baked corn tortilla strips, sliced avocado and a skinny margarita :) I also like to put the leftovers over a salad the next day.

About Jennifer

I am the mother of 2 beautiful children, Presley-7 and Cash-5 and married to an amazing husband and father, Todd. I have always thought of myself as a healthy person...I've always loved sports, working out and eating healthy. However, looking back, I've actually had a lot of unhealthy habits. I've tried every diet out there : Low fat (How did I think eating a box of fat free snackwells cookies was healthy?), Low carb (can you say fried pork skins GROSS)... as well as a long stint with disordered eating which started in college as a way to avoid those "freshman 15".
Well it wasn't until my 30s that I realized those kind of diets are just a quick fix, not a lifestyle. I think all foods can fit into a healthy diet as long as you practice moderation. I have found that I feel and look my best when I am eating mostly plant-based foods. Not to say I won't indulge in a filet every now and again... but I find that I crave meat less and less ! I have recently been fascinated with trying new vegetarian recipes...I NEVER thought I could give up chicken...used it eat it everyday, but I actually don't miss it at all.
I am trying to pass these healthy eating habits onto my children so they can avoid some of the diseases related to unhealthy diets.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a healthy day !!!!
