Taco Soup

I got this recipe from my mom. She always made good comfort food growing up which is probably why I like comfort food so much. I always especially liked when she made soup. She would make chicken and rice, chili, chicken noodle with homemade noodles. So I knew I would like this recipe that she gave me for Taco Soup.

The original recipe she gave me is more like a chili than a soup. I was in the mood tonight for more of a soup so I added tomato sauce and beef broth to make it a little thinner. So I guess you could say this is a Taco "Stoup" according to Rachael Ray. Thicker than a soup but thinner then a stew. Ooohhh Rachael.....she is so nerdy, but I love her anyway. I also used ground turkey instead of beef because I was trying to be a little healthier and anymore I just like ground turkey better.

I really like how this came out and will definitely be making it again. I like the use of taco seasoning because I did not have to keep adding different seasonings to get the taste I wanted, the taco seasoning was all the flavoring it needed. Thanks for this one Mom!
