Tex Mex soup

Submitted by: CAFEJOJO

Introduction

This is my version of what I had at home to make Chef Megs Taco soup. I cut the tomato sauce, garbanzos and used Boca instead of ground beef.

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    2 cups Boca crumbles
    1/2 c onion chopped
    4 cloves garlic chopped or pressed
    3 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 can Mexican style tomatoes (juice too)
    1 can black beans (rinsed)
    approx 1/2 c water
    1 cup pico de gallo or homemade salsa (tomatoes, onion, cilantro, red pepper, lime juice & garlic)
    1/2 can (approx 1 cup) Mexican style corn (rinsed) or you could use frozen
    1 tbs lime juice

    1/

Directions

Place Boca crumbles in a pot, (I sprayed Pam in the bottom so it wouldn't stick while thawing the crumbles) Break apart and cook to thaw and heat, add onion, garlic and spices. Simmer that for about 5 minutes. (if need be, you can add a little water at this time) Add the tomatoes, pico de gallo or salsa, black beans, corn and water. Simmer additional 5-10 minutes to mix flavors. Right before serving add the lime juice. I served with chips, cheese on top and sour cream.

The original recipe called for tomato sauce, but I added the salsa I had here instead. This helped to save on some of the sodium. I also rinsed the beans and corn to try to help cut the sodium.

  • What and where can I find Boca crumbles? - 9/8/11

    Reply from CAFEJOJO (9/8/11)
    Boca Meatless Ground Crumbles are a soy alternative to using ground beef. They are sold at most grocery stores in my area in the freezer section.(in a resealable type of bag) They have other type of meatless products like breakfast "sausage", brats, burgers, etc. as well.
