Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Ground Turkey, Beef, or Chicken macros for 93/7 Ground Turkey
  • 15 oz can Sliced Stewed Tomatoes
  • 10 oz can Rotel
  • 15 oz can Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz can Pinto Beans drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz can Corn
  • 12 oz bag 3 Pepper & Onion Blend frozen (or you can use fresh onions/peppers
  • 12 oz bag Broccoli & Cauliflower Florets frozen (or 1/2 broccoli, 1/2 cauliflower if you can't find a blend)
  • 8 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese room temp
  • 1 C (227g) Fat Free Greek Yogurt plain

Instructions

  1. In a large pot or an Instant Pot, brown your choice of ground meat over medium high heat with one packet of taco seasoning. (Use the saute function if using an Instant Pot.)

  2. Once the meat is fully cooked, add all the canned ingredients, cauliflower and broccoli, and remaining seasoning packets to a large pot. Heat the mixture until the frozen veggies begin to soften, stirring often, before reducing the heat to low. 

  3. Add the cream cheese and Greek yogurt to the soup and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the cream cheese and Greek yogurt are fully incorporated and no lumps remain. 

  4. To portion this out, you can weigh your final mixture in a large bowl using a food scale. Depending on your calorie/macro goals, portion accordingly.

Be sure to account for anything you'll add to the soup like cheese, sour cream, chips, etc.
