Tortilla Soup

It’s made with ground beef or turkey, can be cooked all day in a crockpot or made stovetop in no time.


• 3/4-1 lb. of ground beef or turkey

• 1 T. olive oil

• 1 Yellow onion, diced

• 2 Jalapeño peppers, seeds removed and chopped

• 1/2-1 Red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced

• 1 T. Taco Seasonings

• 15 oz. can petite cut tomatoes

• 8 oz can of Mexican tomato sauce

• 2 15 oz. cans of black beans

• 15 oz. can of broth, use chicken, beef or vegetable broth

• 4 oz. can of fire roasted green chilies-chopped

• 2-3 oz. of Velveeta cheese to thicken soup

• Salt to taste

• 1 Avocado-diced

• 1 c. shredded Mexican cheeses

• 4 Green onions, sliced

• Taco shells


1. In a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion and jalapeño peppers and sauté until the onions are fork tender. Set aside.

2. Add the ground meat to the same skillet and cook through browning lightly.  Drain off excess fat if any. Turn heat to low. Add the taco seasonings to the meat and allow time to be absorbed.

3. At this point ingredients other than the last three can be layered into a crockpot for all day cooking.

4. For the stovetop add all ingredients except for the last four. If you are using the two cans of beans rinse one can of beans and only add the beans. The other can of beans use the entire can even the liquid.

5. Now simmer for 30 minutes on low.

6. Add the Velveeta and melt into soup.

7. Serve with avocado, shredded cheese, green onion and crumbled taco shells over the top.
