Cheri's CREAMY SOUTHWESTERN TACO SOUP
 
I made this tonight and I must say it's one of my favorite recipes so far.
I added a dab of sour cream in my bowl and mmmmmm so good :D
Its getting cold out too so perfect timing for soup.

Thanks again LindaSue for all your wonderful recipes!!

I just want to point out that the recipe came from Cheri who is one of the administrators here at LCF.

GirlPimp 12-02-2009 09:24 AM

opps sorry cheri :o

CherylB 12-02-2009 03:59 PM

Sounds yummy! I will try it soon. Snow's coming and soup is going to be so fine!

tyler43836 12-02-2009 05:09 PM

Definitely one of my favorites!

becky123abc 12-02-2009 05:36 PM

I made this, but one of the cans of Rotel was labeled "hot" and hot it is!! Can anyone tell me what I might add to this soup to take away some of the hot/spicy??? It's delicious otherwise...

I'm not an experienced cook...

Thanks!

Make another batch without any Rotel and mix the two together.

AdeCafe 12-02-2009 07:03 PM

normally i would say add some sugar to break a bit of the heat, but i cant say that!

becky123abc 12-02-2009 08:27 PM

Thanks Purple Crayon! That's a good idea!

AdeCafe, I guess I'll pass too on the added sugar, but thanks! :rofl:

Dairy and sour cream cuts heat quickly...

Linny 12-03-2009 06:30 AM

This is a delicious soup!!

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 12-03-2009 10:26 AM

Becky, there are 2 types of Rotel. The HOT one and the one made with green chilies. The hot is very hot the other one is mild IMO Julie

becky123abc 12-03-2009 01:29 PM

Yes, I put one can of each in my soup. I won't ever get the hot one again...live and learn! :doh: Ireally like the taste of the soup though. v:cool:

rotten 12-03-2009 07:32 PM

Actually, there are more then two types of rotel. I used the chunky in this tonight. I made a double batch. I found out you need a really large pot to make a double. It was oh so good though! Thanks!

Made this soup last wekk and it was great. My BF who never wants to eat low carb loved it. I didn't tell him it was lC till after he told me he liked it..

lbecker28 12-23-2009 10:36 AM

This is one of my favorite LC meals. I serve it over shredded lettuce.

Dreamchaser 12-23-2009 10:47 AM

YUM, thanks for the great idea! I must try this :kicking:

Question - how many ounces of beef broth is that? Because I usually buy it in a box.

GirlPimp 12-23-2009 06:12 PM

two 14 oz. cans is what I use :)

Thank you! :)

Made this tonight and it was a huge hit with the family. It was very easy and it tasted "Gourmet" as the family said. I didn't change a single thing and won't change anything in the future.
I had some corn tortillas in the fridge. Cut and sprayed them with a little oil, salted and
baked them for the kids. Very nice meal. Thank you Cheri and Linda Sue!

GratefulParrot 10-16-2012 06:20 AM

I actually like the HOT one for myself. My family doesn't like it.

Rotel makes a mexican one, which is mild and has lime and cilantro added. It's the perfect heat level for them.

Another tip you might not know, but we make the chicken version as well. Just replace the beef with chicken, and use chicken broth. That easy.

Vilya 10-16-2012 09:17 AM

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes, and I too made a pot last night!

I use the original Rotel, and only 1 can instead of 2, since I don't like quite so many tomatoes in there. I think this soup has the best flavor of just about any soup I've ever had. It's delicious!!!

Dreamchaser - I use a full box of beef broth, rather than 2 cans, since I like mine to be a little more "soupy." It's just a few ounces more than using 2 cans.

island girl2 10-17-2012 10:39 AM

made this for dinner last night and it was delicious - the only change i made was to add about 1 cup shredded cabbage for extra bulk.

BaileysGirl 10-17-2012 11:47 AM

I made this A LOT last fall/winter! I almost forgot about it!

JMacB 10-17-2012 05:54 PM

This was so good. Perfect quick dinner. One of my favorites so far!

crazywoman-n-wy 10-18-2012 12:07 AM

I really like this soup as well.
Sometimes I use chicken broth or one each of chicken & beef even in the beef recipe. And sometimes I use canned tomatoes and a can or 2 of diced green chilies, especially if I don't have Rotel on hand. I'll have to make sure I always pay close attention when I buy Rotel. I won't want to buy the Mexican style, I don't like cilantro, and not sure I'd like lime in it (don't think I would!). I also don't like it HOT! I have made the mistake of buying the hot before instead or the regular or mild.

I like to make the cheese crisps (or cheese crackers, whatever you call them) to go with this. And yes, I like to add a little sour cream to my bowl of soup too!

Another cold snap has hit, so it might just very well be the time to make a batch!

Mmmmm!!! Thanks Cheri!

Heheher 10-18-2012 02:40 PM

I made this yesterday and it's almonst gone. Really wonderful!

crazywoman-n-wy 10-19-2012 12:27 AM

I made a half batch this morning. I used canned diced tomatoes & a can of green chilies, and used 1/2 chicken & 1/2 beef broth.
Mmmm good on a chilly day.
I have a stick blender, and blended the (softened) cream cheese into the broths, then I also slightly blended the tomatoes.

astribling 10-20-2012 01:48 PM

I tried this soup today because I wanted something hot and creamy. WoW! So yummy! I used half chicken broth and half beef (cause that's what I had here) and also added about 1 cup of shredded and drained zucchini. It was delish!

Jennifer Eloff 10-20-2012 02:21 PM

Wish I could easily find MSG-free broth. I make my own chicken broth - guess I could sub that? Sounds wonderful!! Especially love the cream cheese in it. That's delightful! :)
