Easy taco soup

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Ground Beef; Extra Lean, (or ground turkey)
½ cup Chopped onion
1 pack (1 1/4 Oz) taco seasoning mix
5 cups Tomato juice
\N \N Low fat sour cream
\N \N Shredded lettuce
\N \N Chopped green onions
\N \N Chopped tomatoes
\N \N Low Fat Cheddar Cheese; Shredded
\N \N Tortilla chips; preferably baked


Cook ground beef and onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink; about 6-10 minutes. Drain off any fat. (I have my students dump it into a colander then back into the pan because they can't drain it effectively otherwise) Stir in seasoning mix and continue cooking for 1 minute. Stir in tomato juice. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until heated through -- about 5 minutes. To serve, ladle soup into bowls.

Each individual can then add additional toppings.

NOTES : * May substitute 1 teaspoon onion paste for the chopped onion, if desired. This comes in a tube like anchovy paste, is really quick to use and eliminates the need to have students chopping with sharp knives.
