This seems to have become a day after Christmas tradition at our house. The recipe originally comes from Joe & Deb Meeuwsen (Jill, Anne, & Katie, taught/teach with Deb's sister at Kennedy). We all have our favorite toppings for the soup. Mine is cheddar cheese (Tillamook Cheddar, of course), Jon's is sour cream, Lucas & Doug each load their bowl up with Fritos. More Fritos than soup, I swear.
This is the Recipe as it came from Joe & Deb:
2 15oz cans black beans
2 cans corn
2 14oz petite diced tomatoes
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
2 pkg Taco Bell Taco Seasonings
1 cup water to thin, if needed
THIS IS HOW I MAKE IT:
1.25# pkg of lean ground turkey (cooked/crumbled/drained)
3 or 4 cans of beans (2 black, then kidney, chili, red, or pinto)
(I drain the black beans & pinto, but not the red or kidney)
2 cans corn, drained (Jon really likes the corn)
Same diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, taco seasoning as above.
I rinse out my cans with a little water and add the water to the soup.
The amt of water you add determines if you have a brothy soup (as I like) or a thicker soup.
THIS IS SO QUICK AND FAST TO THROW TOGETHER!
IT'S MOSTLY OPENING CANS!!
Then just let it simmer and and let the aroma fill the house!
Everyone that has tried this soup has liked it!
