Taco Soup

Taco Soup
A dreamy, creamy addition to my soup collection for sure!
Who doesn't love tacos?  
Who doesn't love soup?


Ingredients:

1 lb grass fed beef
1 TB coconut oil
Taco Spice mix (pre bought -how dare you- or make your own)
4 cups Beef Broth
2 cans tomatoes (fire roasted or Rotel) or a jar of salsa
8 oz cream cheese
shredded monterey jack chesse
avocado
olives
lime juice
joseph's pitas
salt

Instructions:

Brown meat in coconut oil.  Add taco spice mix.  Add tomatoes in juices and broth.  Simmer.  Add cream cheese and break up and stir until melted.  Give a good couple squeezes of lime juice.  Divide into serving bowls and add toppings.  Serve with Lime & salt pita chips. 

Lime & salt Pita Chips

Cut up a Joseph's Pita into 2 circles, cutting along the edge with a pair of kitchen scissors.
Then cut each circle into triangles. I arrange my pita triangles on a cookie sheet with holes in it.  (It's made for thin crust pizzas.)  This allows heat to flow thru and makes for a nice crispy chip.
Spray your chips with a little coconut spray, drizzle some lime juice on them and shower with salt.
I have perfected my chip cooking time to 350 degrees for 6 minutes and 45 seconds.  Your time will vary.  Don't walk away from your oven---unless you like burnt chips!

*If you are in Crossover land, pregnant or nursing, brown rice in this would be a lovely addition!

Enjoy & Ole!

  1. Is this an "S" without the chips?
