Cheris Creamy Southwest Taco Soup...

This was excellent as written with ground beef - but - if anyone has a chance please try the chicken version - this is outstanding!!!

This recipe is wonderful! One of my favorites!

CHERI'S CREAMY SOUTHWESTERN TACO SOUP
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

Per 1/8 Recipe: 271 Calories; 22g Fat; 13g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 4g Net Carbs


I've made it with chicken as well. The chicken is good, too, but I prefer the beef version

This is a favorite of mine, too. For some reason, I think the beef version tastes better with chicken broth instead of beef.

I used half chicken and half beef broth because that is what I had. It turned out great. This is just an outstanding soup. I put it on my flylady site and those who tried it, loved it!

This is what I did and I'm telling you this is by far the BEST soup I have had in a long time! So creamy, so good!! I sliced a LC Tortilla into thin strips and fried the strips to use on top of the soup!

DBF LOVED this and kept all of it for himself, the piggy!!

Having this soup as I type. So very yummy! Looks like I have lunch for the next few days as the boys hate tomatoes. (I am so thankful for that!) Thanks for the recipe!

Fancy it up with little baby meatballs or shrimp. Sour cream on top with chopped chives or bacon bits sprinkled on top. Our favoirte soup, hands down.

Just made this tonight. Told my son and his wife to come over tomorrow and have some...now I don't want to share! (But of course I will). I have enough ingredients to make another batch. They also love the pumpkin/sausage soup, so I may make another batch of that also. Love all these recipes!

I'm making this again tomorrow. We absolutely love it. This time I am thinking about taking some of those low carb tortillas, cutting them into strips and frying them up to serve with it. They are only 5 carbs each and won't add that much carb to dinner. I have the tomato and basil flavor.

I don't know of anyone that doesn't like this recipe. Maybe your tastebuds are off Charski.

I have made it with chicken also and it is good especially if people are watching their red meat intake.

Bumping this up because this soup is just amazing! I have made it with chicken, beef or pork and no matter what meat I have used it's just incredible!
