Easy AF Taco Soup

I was really excited when I came up with this idea for an easy taco soup using the thick and delicious @traderjoes organic tomato and roasted red pepper soup box. I knew I wanted to zhuzh it up. This soup came together in about 10 minutes and simmered while I got the kids to bed. After my husband saw it he said, “so you made chili?” Well....he isn’t wrong, but he isn’t right. It’s Mexican chili but different. Just trust me.


½ onion diced

¾ ground beef (could use ground turkey or chicken too)

½ tbsp cumin

½ tbsp chili powder

Salt and Pepper

1 32 oz box @traderjoes organic tomato and roasted red pepper soup

½ can (approx. 8 oz) whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed

½ can (approx. 8 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed

1 4 oz can green chilis

½ lime, squeezed


Diced tomato

Diced avocado
