ok, you decide...Taco Soup Recipes

Hannah's Taco Soup

8 Can Taco Soup

I have a different recipe for taco soup that I've loved making for a while now, but it is seriously nothing compared to this. And my old recipe is twice as much work too! Weird. At less than 300 calories per cup, this stuff is awesome. You wouldn't think a cup would be very much, but I can barely finish it. It's so good! {Be sure to check out another awesome 8 Can Taco Soup recipe from Big Red Clifford!}

·                     1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
·                     1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
·                     1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
·                     1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained
·                     1 (12.5 oz.) can white chicken breast, drained (I used rotisserie chicken)
·                     1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
·                     1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce
·                     1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
·                     1 packet taco seasoning

1.                   Mix all ingredients together in a large pot.
2.                   Heat until warm, stirring occasionally.
3.                   Serve with tortilla chips.

My Taco Soup, I think I am still loving it best:  I served this soup when I did Box Lunch Deliveries when I first started my business.  Here is a pic of one of the lunches. Served with Southern Living's Brown Sugar Coffee Cake.
