Cheri's creamy southwest taco soup???
can anyone point me to this recipe? someone mentioned that it is great!

Here ya go. I love it, eat it a lot!!

1 pound ground beef
2 3/4 ounces onion, chopped, 1/2 cup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 10-ounce cans Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained (tomatoes with green chilies)
2 cans beef broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

In a large soup pot, brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic; drain. Add the spices and cook a couple minutes. Drop the cream cheese in bits into the meat. With the back of a big spoon, smash it into the meat until no bits of white remain. Stir in remaining ingredients and heat through.

Makes 8 cups or 6-8 servings
Freezing not recommended

Adding here is the link to her soup on LCF. She has added a couple of variations to the recipe like adding chicken instead of hamburger. Both are very good.

Thanks so much! Can't wait to make it next week!

Based on the ingredients how long do you think this would last in the fridge? I would be the only one eating it so don't' want it to spoil before its finished.

If you wanted to extend its lifespan (based on the ingredients) just don't add the cream cheese and hvy cream, the ratio seems to be simple enough you could eyeball adding those 2 things when you reheat.
By the same token even tho freezing is not recommended (due to the cream cheese and hvy cream methinks) you could portion out the meat mix into freezer bowls and so on.

When I read this, I thought it said if you want to extend your lifespan:laugh::laugh:. Guess that might be true also:confused:

Love, love, love, love this soup! My family also loves it (kiddos too), they use Tostitos to scoop it up:) I myself just love it as it is:) Guess what I'm putting on my menu for next week?

This was very yummy. I enjoyed it very much. It is cold and rainy today, and this really hit the spot.

Hey girly... I have to add.. this is the best soup ever.. I had to look it up again because the guys here at work want me to make it for tomorrows lunch.. so yes.. you must make it.. love love love it!!:love: :love: :love:

fourstubbs 10-16-2010 12:41 AM

Bump...yet another great soup idea!

crazywoman-n-wy 10-16-2010 08:53 PM

This is good soup! I've made it several times. I usually use chicken broth rather than the beef. I tend to have the chicken on hand, and don't always the beef. Plus I think it makes it a little richer tasting.
Linda, You can also just make half the recipe! Pretty easy to halve.

frjimt 12-10-2010 11:12 AM

loved the recipe, i used sour cream instead of cream cheese, gave it more of the taco taste, to my liking!

Mishka68 12-10-2010 11:25 AM

I made it last night using baked, shredded chicken breast and replacing the beef broth with chicken broth...it was fabulous. :)

We love this soup. I add more veggies sometimes like zucchini and collards but just by itself it is really good. I wish I had remembered we can take those 3 gram tortillas, cut them in strips and fry them to eat with out soup. I think they would taste good. Especially the tomato and basil one.

Sounds delicious - have hamburger thawing so must try this tomorrow.

SkeeterN 11-05-2012 03:28 PM
