Creamy Southwest Taco Soup

Introduction

A wonderful low-carb taco soup with a kick! Perfect on a cold day! My husband who is not dieting crumbles tortilla chips over the top. A wonderful low-carb taco soup with a kick! Perfect on a cold day! My husband who is not dieting crumbles tortilla chips over the top.

Ingredients

    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

Directions

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.

This soup is very good, quick and easy to make and has a bit of a kick from the Ro-tel tomatoes. I didn't time it, but I'd guess that this soup only takes about 15 minutes at the most to make.

  • I found this on Linda's LC website and tried it. I accidentally put in twice the cheese listed and it was delicious! Plan to try as written next time. - 12/13/12
