Even though summer is unofficially here I still love a quick and easy soup recipe. It’s perfect for cooler and rainy summer nights when you need to get dinner on the table fast. Earlier this week I picked up a couple packages of Birds Eye Steamfresh Southwest Protein Blend at Meijer. I knew it would be great for adding bulk and protein power to our usual tacos and enchiladas or as a stand alone meal, but I also wanted to use it to make an incredibly quick and easy taco soup.
By using the Birds Eye protein blend you eliminate lots of chopping and time without sacrificing any flavor and getting an incredible array of vegetables which is a total win in my book!
Easy Taco Soup
2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
1 teaspoon dried cilantro or 1/4 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
1 lime juiced
1 package Birds Eye SteamFresh Southwest Protein Blend
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheddar cheese for garnish
Microwave steamfresh pouch for 2 minutes to soften and defrost vegetables. Combine all ingredients and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot with homemade whole wheat tortilla chips.
Homemade Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips
Whole wheat tortillas
Brush tortillas with approximately 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Slice in 8-6 pieces using pizza cutter. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until golden brown and slightly puffy at the edges. Store in airtight container.
This simple homemade chips and taco soup is so quick and easy to make! I love that it is totally clean-eating approved, but FAST! You can have dinner on the table in 15 minutes no problem with this recipe. You can dress up this soup by adding shredded or canned chicken or cooked ground turkey. Either would be yummy, but I love having another meatless meal up our sleeves too!
