Santa Fe/Taco Soup
« on: September 04, 2011, 04:27:31 PM »
This is a family favorite! It makes a huge amount and you may want to half it or plan to freeze leftovers for a quick easy lunch!! I have a large family and we still have leftovers!  :o

Santa Fe/Taco Soup

Ingredients:

2 pounds ground beef (0 carbs)
1 cup scallions, chopped (7 carbs)
1 T. garlic diced (3 carbs)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
tsp. cumin, tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. chili powder, tsp. oregano (replaces the taco seasoning packet) (0 carbs)
2 cups water
2 large fresh tomatoes diced (10 carbs)
2 - 15 oz cans black soy beans drained (7 carbs) - put these in when you cook ground beef so they have time to soften up. (Thanks Umpa for this tip!!!)
1 pkg. frozen cauliflower made into caulimash (6 carbs)

Brown beef, onion, & garlic. Drain. Add taco seasoning replacements, heavy cream, & vinegar. Combine rest of ingredients. Simmer 2 hours. Add more water if too thick. Garnish with sour cream and cheddar cheese. 31 carbs for whole recipe!

Serve with Joagain's cornbread!!! Yummy!!!  http://www.fattoskinny.net/index.php?topic=1302.0

Hi MommaB We were just talking about a soup that is very close to this in another forum...LOL  This really sounds yummy!!  One question though.....
Quote
1 package ranch-style dressing mix (3 carbs)
  What brand do you use??  My Hidden Valley pack has 1 carb for 1/2 tsp serving with 16 servings in a package.   3 carbs for the package sounds so much better to me...LOL  Fall is on it's way so this will be so good  ;D

ok...I'm sorry guys...thought that I had ranch dressing mix that was 3 carbs, but I was wrong!!  :P
Umpa, can you help me with an alternative to the ranch dressing mix that will give the same flavor without all the carbs!?!

Thanks for the help!!!  ;)

Yes .Heavy cream  1/2 a cup and and a 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar.If the kids don't like vineager skip it and just use the heavy cream.The vinegar will give it that twang that ranch dressing has ;)
