Tex Mex Soup

This recipe is so easy. I gave the recipe to a friend that does not cook and she surprised her husband. She said it was so easy all she had to do was open the cans. We now call it I “Can” Soup. It is really just a healthier version of Taco Soup. I know everyone has a recipe for this iconic soup. But be sure to add this one to your recipe box. It is delicious and has a lighter broth than many others. I have made it with both turkey and beef, broth and beer. All variations were delicious. This is a great hearty soup that almost anyone can prepare.

  1. Denise, this sounds so good- I love the alternate name, "Can Soup"! It's still a little cool here, and it's been rainy...just the right weather for your Tex Mex Soup. I'll have mine with some of your homemade Pico de Gallo! :D

  2. Great name: "I Can Soup!" I like that this is an easy and quick enough soup to make on a weeknight. I could get home form work and have this on the table in no time at all!

    Thank you for linking this week!
