Yesterday I posted about trying to get back into the clean eating and a good starting point grocery list. Of course after I posted about the shopping I found THIS awesome blog. I can see this make the actual meal planning process so. much. easier! Check it out… Themed meal planning. I had to come back and share it too. It can really work with any kind of diet. There are so many options you could use and yet having the initial framework to build your menu makes finding recipes super easy.
In that post she starts her week with Monday being Soup Day. There are about 9 million different soup recipes. I hadn’t planned on planning like this right away but I’ve been craving some taco soup so why not?!
Crock Pot Taco Soup
1lb ground turkey (or beef if you want)
1 packet taco seasoning (or be clean and make your own)
2 cans diced tomatoes – I used 1 mexi and one Italian because its what I had
2 cans beans drained – use what you want..I used 1 black, 1 white northern
1 can diced green chilis
1/2 diced onion
A couple shakes garlic powder
Chicken broth (about 1 – 2 cups until its more soupy than chili-y. Unless you want chili…then ignore the broth)
Frozen corn – I forgot to add this but I wanted to. Oops!
Tortilla chips and cheese to top with if you want
Do it –
Cook your meat with your taco seasoning. Add to crock pot with the rest of your ingredients except for the chips/cheese and let simmer for a few hours. Not very scientific. I put mine on medium for about 3 hours. When it’s hot and you’re hungry scoop into bowls, crunch a few tortilla chips on top and add cheese if you want it. So yummy and perfect now that the weather is cooling off.
