Tex-Mex Cream of Chicken Soup

2 pounds ground turkey, or ground chicken
1/2 cup onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups 2% low-fat milk
2 10 3/4 ounce cans condensed cream of chicken soup
2 11 ounce cans mexi corn, drained
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 4.5 ounce cans diced green chiles or jalapenos, drained
4 tablespoons cilantro, chopped, optional
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 cups lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven cook ground chicken or turkey, onion, and garlic until chicken or turkey is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat from pan.

Stir in milk, cream of chicken soup, corn, chopped tomato, chili peppers, cilantro or parsley, and ground red pepper. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cheese; cook and stir until cheese melts. Garnish each serving with additional cilantro or parsley, if desired.

I got this recipe from here. This version (a double batch) serves about 8.

I LOVE THIS SOUP!!! Okay now that I got that out of my system. This is a favorite around the house, well at least with Justin and I. The 6 year old, she’s not that into it, but hopefully she will learn to love it as we do!

As you can see I finally got the Kitchen Aid Grinder!!! I usually just use my food processor to “grind” the chicken breast, but the Grinder is awesome! You can use ground turkey in this and it’s really good too.

Easy Taco Soup

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, ground *
1 whole onion, chopped
1 16 ounce can chili beans in zesty sauce, with liquid
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, with liquid
1 15 ounce can corn, with liquid
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
1 1.25 ounce packet taco seasoning mix

In a medium skillet, cook the ground chicken until browned over medium heat. Drain, and set aside.

Place the ground chicken, onion, chili beans, kidney beans, corn, tomato sauce, water, diced tomatoes, green chile peppers and taco seasoning mix in a slow cooker. Mix to blend, and cook on Low setting for 8 hours.

* I just use left over taco meat. I always make too much so I save it for this and Taco Chicken Pizza.

You can also use ground turkey or ground beef. It just depends on what you like.
