Creamy Southwestern Soup

Hi there, friends! Hope your week is off to a great start. We've been bundling up under blankets all weekend... first at the baseball fields on Saturday and then Sunday afternoon at home. With the chilly and damp weather we've had, even a snow flurry or two, it was definitely the right atmosphere for a hearty soup! So if you're looking for a new soup recipe to add to your lineup, you've come to the right place. This Creamy Southwestern Soup will hit the spot!

Although hearty and delicious, this Creamy Southwestern Soup will have them begging for seconds!

Creamy Southwestern Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
olive oil
Garlic salt
4 oz. cream cheese
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes (I pulsed mine in the food processor a few times.)
1 small can diced green chiles
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
1 small can shoe peg corn, drained
16 oz. beef broth
1 tsp. taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. cumin
salt & pepper to taste

Over medium heat brown onions in olive oil. Add in ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain off the fat. Reduce the burner to low. Cut up the cream cheese into cubes and add in to the ground beef, smashing in with back of spoon until no lumps remain. Add in tomatoes, green chiles, black beans, corn and beef broth. Season with cumin, salt, pepper and taco spices. Stir to combine and allow to heat through completely. Serve with corn bread or tortilla chips.

Creamy Southwestern Soup is perfect for the chilly nights of winter!

This soup is both filling and delicious. It's got meat, spices and veggies...what more could a soup need? It's really easy to customize to your tastes too. I hope you love it as much we did! Now, if only it would warm up our toes as much as our tummies... ;-)

  1. It's windy here today and getting colder...With a late afternoon basketball practice for one of the boys, this sounds wonderful to come home to, and easy to put together! I think this will be on our menu tonight. Thanks for the perfect timing!
