Taco Soup

June 5, 2012

(This post is revised as of March 20th, 2014. I love the homemade Taco Seasoning recipe, but in using it several times, I have discovered that using 1/2 of the recipe below to season ONE pound of meat, is plenty. Please feel free to season to your own taste buds!)

This is an old WW recipe that is a favorite of mine. I don’t really even know why I call it a WW recipe. It’s a recipe. But I do know that I received it from a WW member a long, long time a go. I have tweaked it just a bit.

I like to make this early in the day and let it simmer in the crockpot. Of course it’s always better the next day!


I like to serve this over a bed of baked chips, then top with a little reduced fat cheddar and sour cream (plain Greek yogurt taste good too!).

This recipe makes about 8-10 cups.

1 cup = Approximately 5 PPV.
