Creamy Southwestern Soup
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
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.
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... ;-)
