"The most delicious soup ever" is how Tammy refers to this ... ...
Doesn't that look absolutely scrumptious?
Here's the recipe ...
1 pound ground turkey, browned
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 large can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can green chilies, undrained
1 can whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can sliced black olives, drained
1 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
Place ingredients in a crock pot, stir and add just enough water to cover everything. Cook on low all day or on high for about 4 hours. Top individual bowls of soup with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
Tammy adds, "I would imagine this would be fine simmering in a large pot on the stove all day. Also, it would be delicious without meat, too."
I intend to try this when our weather cools down a bit. I'll be using RO*TEL's cans of diced tomatoes and green chilies, instead. Too bad they don't have the RO*TEL brand up there in Idaho. You might recall that I first wrote about RO*TEL this past January, when I was talking about a really neat recipe for chili. If you missed that post and would like a tried and tested chili recipe, or if you'd just like to go back and refresh your memory banks, here's the link.
I think I will not use turkey. Believe I'll try beef, instead. Also, I like mushrooms. I wonder how those would work? Could they be simmered along with all of the other ingredients in a crock pot?
