two kinds of yummy soups

These two soups have been family favorites for years and years.  My kids eyes sparkle when I tell them we’re having one of them for dinner.  And I really think they are pretty healthy too. 

Taco Soup

Brown 1 lb. of ground beef with onion and seasonings.

add:
2-3 c. water
1 large can crushed tomatoes
a couple cans of light red kidney beans (un-drained)
a couple cans of dark red kidney beans (un-drained)
1 pkg+ taco seasoning2012-12-10 fall 65782
Let simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Add 1 c. corn and heat until steamy.

Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese and Fritos (unless you want to be more healthy, then leave those out).2012-12-11 winter 65991

Crockpot White Bean Chicken Chili

Put in crockpot in the morning:

2-3 frozen chicken breasts or 8-10 chicken tenderloins
1 jar green salsa2012-12-04 iPhone 65892
Cook on low setting until chicken is cooked through.

If I put this on low for two hours (with the small tenderloins) it’s done in mine, but every crock pot cooks a little differently.

Shred the chicken with two forks. 

Add:
2-3 cans white kidney beans (un-drained)
1 c. whole kernel corn
1 tsp. cumin
Leave in crock pot until warmed through.

Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and tortilla strips if desired.2012-12-15 holiday stuff 66506
So easy-peasy.

I think I’ll make one of these for tonight…

On another food note, a very kind blog reader sent me these when she found out I was going off gluten:

I had some on our January birthdays when I could eat sugar and they are really good!  I'm pretty impressed that this family has created "Jude's Foods" to help their son who has some diet restrictions.
