We had a potluck at church this week and several of the ladies decided to collaborate and all bring food that was healthy so us trim and healthy folks would have something to eat.  I decided to get creative and tweak an old favorite into something new and fabulous.  I bring you: Taco Soup.

It’s pretty simple…dump the veggies in the crock pot.  

  Let ’em cook for several hours, till everything is fragrant and tender.

Blend it up (try not to splatter paint your kitchen walls the way I did).

Add in the meat and cheese, stir well.

Lastly, I added fresh cilantro as a garnish.  We served it topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt in lieu of sour cream.  Those of us not eating THM style had tortilla chips with it.

All in all, it was a success and one we’ll repeat regularly!  Hungry yet?

 For the THM tweaks:

  • To make this as an “S”, use ground beef, cheddar cheese, and any added veggies you’d like and top it with sour cream
  • To make it an “E”, use beans and onions and even rice if you’d like, a little bit of low fat cheese along with lean meat (shredded chicken, ground grass fed beef
  • rinsed, etc.) and top with Greek yogurt
  • To keep it in “FP” territory, use shredded chicken and low fat Laughing Cow cheese wedges (I like the white cheddar or chipotle in here)
