Make-Over Monday: Taco Soup

We were in the mood for a Little Spice tonight, so we decide here at the Pantry that we were going to play with an old favorite and re-work it into the calorie count that we wanted. Our goal was not to lose the bold flavor or the richness of the soup and yet we wanted to feel like we could enjoy a whole bowl full with out busting our daily calorie limits. So here you are...

1 lb ground turkey or extra lean beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can of red Kidney Beans
1 can of black beans
1 can of whole kernel corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 half onion diced
1/4 green pepper diced
1/4 yellow pepper diced
1/2 can black olives sliced
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 package tortilla chips

Brown meat in the microwave, add taco seasoning, stir. Add the onion, beans, corn and tomatoes, juice and all. Simmer together 10-20 minutes until warm. Serve with sprinkle of cheese and chips. You can add a teaspoon full of sour cream on top as garnish if you like.

makes 8 - 1 1/2 cup servings / Calories per serving with sour cream is 248
