Taco Schmacko Soup

Tonight it was a little cool outside and so I decided that it sounded like a good soup night. I have been having this kind of soup like once every 1-2 weeks because it tastes so yummy and uses up beans that I have in my food storage.
This is also a fairly healthy option for those watching their waistlines as it is high in protein and fiber!:)


1 lb extra lean ground beef (browned and rinsed)
1 onion, chopped
2 cans of beans
1 can of corn
2 small cans diced tomatoes (I puree one can)
1 pkg taco seasoning
garlic powder to taste
1/2 cup water
fat free sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese
tortilla chips

add to a crock pot and cook on high for about 2 hours. Serve with a dollop of sour cream (I use fat free) and just a little grated cheese.
To make it more fun, you can use tortilla chips to dip and scoop soup out too


10 corn tortillas cut into quarters
oil for frying
seasoning salt

heat oil to about 350 degrees and place tortilla quarters in the oil. Fry on one side until tortilla becomes stiff (abt. 2 min) and flip until browned. Place chips on paper towels to drain oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Enjoy!

I did a recipe breakdown for the nutrition info in the soup and this is what it says:
