Taco Soup! Yummy!!

Got guest in town?! Make Taco Soup!!
I am not sure where my Mom came across this recipe but I has to be the most delish taco soup recipe EVER! Along with the pumpkin muffins,  I could eat this for just about every meal of the day!  This recipe is super fast (literally 15 mins!) and CHEAP! My pantry is always stocked with taco soup ingredients; great for fall and winter!  I frequently end up freezing half of it because King is often out of town.  Full recipe & instructions below.

{I just realized that I misspelled tortilla . ..  too lazy to change.}

Taco Soup:
1 can corn
2 cans of black beans
1 can pinto beans (I like the ones with the japs already in them.)
1 can original Rotel tomatoes
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 pkg of Taco Bell seasoning mix (I think, Taco Bell's brand is the best.)
1/2 to whole diced onion depending on your preference.  (I use a whole one.)
1/2 - 3/4 bunch of cilantro and some for topping
2-3 chicken breast (depending on size and how "meaty" you like it.  I use 2 large breasts.)
1 diced jalapeno (Be careful cause you don't want it to hot! I don't use an additional jap if I get the pinto beans that already have them.)  
Grated cheese & crushed tortilla chips for topping.

Cut up chicken into bite size pieces and cook, stir in diced onion. (I cook chicken w/ onions directly in the soup pot with a little EVOO)  Mix all canned items into pot with chicken.  Do not drain canned items.  Stir in seasoning mix, cilantro, and diced jalapeno.  Add 1 1/2 cans of water.  Let simmer 10 mins.  Serve in bowls topped with crushed tortilla chips, cilantro and grated cheese.

Serves 6

Well this was immediately sent to the hubby! That would make a great vegetarian meal too sans the clucker.

This looks so yummy! I've been looking for a chicken tortilla soup recipe, but I like your Taco soup recipe because I always have those things in my pantry! I think it'll be Taco Soup for dinner tonight!

Saw you at Backyard Eden!

Taco soup is my FAVORITE soup! I use ground beef in mind. And I TOTALLY agree about Taco Bell being the best seasoning! I even mentioned that in my Tex-Mex Lasagna post today!

I'd love for you to link this up to What's Cooking Wednesday!
