No D-Day

Today is No D-Day for the D-blogs.  A day when we write about something-not D related!  Read here for more info on No D-Day.

So, I am going to write about a favorite low-ish carb recipie that we all love.  It's a nice warm your belly soup. 

Taco Soup

1 can of chicken broth
1 can of diced tomatoes (I used a jar of my canned tomatoes that I canned with onion and jalapenos}
1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
1 can of corn drained
1 can of water
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 pound of browned hamburger, grease drained (or shredded cooked chicken)
Seasonings to taste, salt and pepper, cumin, chilli powder, garlic salt

Put everything in a pot and bring to a simmer, put in seasonings according to your tastes, keep on low until you serve.  Serve with toppings, crushed tortillas chips, green onions, avocados, sour cream, shredded cheese, etc. 

We have this pretty frequently in the winter.  I made it just the other night.  We had leftover taco meat and leftover tostada shells, so I used those, just crunched up the tostada shells.  It's super easy to make and really quick too, basically just open a bunch of cans and simmer.  It's probably full of sodium, but the carbs are low.  Super easy to make it vegitarian, just skip the meat, double the beans if you like.  Also, it's gluten free!  Of course the ingredients you buy you would want to make sure they are indeed gluten free. 


  1. I've made this before. Gotta love an easy, low-carb dinner!
