Taco Soup

April 12, 2010

I was just in Utah over Easter and it snowed the whole time – shouldn’t it be spring?! So, I made one of my favorite warm-me-up suppers – Taco Soup.

2          Tbs      Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1                      jalapeno, stemmed, seeded if desired and minced

1                      onion, diced

2          cloves  garlic, minced

3/4       cup      brown rice, uncooked

1 1/2    tsp        ground cumin

1          tsp        dried oregano

1          tsp        dried thyme

1/2       tsp        garlic powder

1/4       tsp        cayenne pepper

1          can (15 oz) diced tomatoes in juice

1/2       cup      prepared salsa

1          quart    vegetable broth

1          can (15 oz)      black beans, rinsed and drained

1          can (15 oz)      white or red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1          can (11 oz)      corn, drained

salt and pepper


green onion, sliced

cilantro, chopped

corn chips

Sauté jalapeño, onion, and garlic in a large pot over medium heat. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add seasoning and rice. Stir together. Add canned ingredients, broth and salsa. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for 45 -60 minutes. Serve with avocado, green onion, cilantro, and corn chips.  Serves 4-6.

This stores well in the fridge for 2-3 days or freeze in individual portions for up to 3 months.
