Fall is definitely upon us. It's time for apple picking, lighting autumn candles and making hearty soups. Here are two soup recipes we tried this week:
Sara's Taco Soup
8 Slices Chopped Bacon (I had turkey bacon - might be better w/regular bacon)
1 Chopped Sweet/Vidalia Onion (I used 1/2 an onion)
1 Chopped Red Pepper
7 Cups Prepared Chicken Broth (I think I used a little more than 7...4 cans)
2-4 Chopped Chicken Breasts (I used 2 HUGE ones)
2 Cans Kernel Corn, Drained
2 7.5oz/215mL Jars Taco Sauce (I used the smooth Ortega mild)
Grated CHEESE FOR GARNISH!!! (I used sharp cheddar)
Cook bacon. Do not drain! When cooked,
Add chicken, onion and pepper. When chicken is cooked on outside,
Add broth, taco sauce, and corn.
Boil, reduce heat to med-low, and cover.
Simmer 20 mins.
I served with tortilla chips and shredded cheese...would have been fabulous with fresh cilantro! Even a little sour cream.
Thank you to my 2nd cousin in Canada, Sara, for this very yummy recipe!
And sorry to my friend Linda, who likes photos with her recipes...I forgot to take a picture!
Another delicious soup recipe is the Copy Cat Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli. This can be found at:
