Taco Soup

I was recently asked by The California Olive Committee to participate in Kitchen PLAY’s SideCar Event celebrating California Black Ripe Olives and National Taco Day.  Fall is here and I knew I wanted to make taco soup.  It just sounded so good to me: ground turkey, hearty beans, olives, corn and tomatoes in a warm spicy broth topped with cheese and a dollop of sour cream.   The best part is this dish is so easy to make and wonderful for feeding crowds or for potlucks.

The California black olives add a nice richness and saltiness to the soup while the cheese and the sour cream help cut the spiciness from the taco seasoning and green chiles.

    I absolutely love this soup. I made it tonight and it was super easy, fast to make and the clean up was a breeze. Great as a weeknight meal and perfect for a rainy days. Hearty and very tasty. The flavor of the taco seasoning blends in well with the meat leaving the house with the aroma of a great Mexican food restaurant that we all crave. The combination of the three different types of beans also go well together. Then the veggies, cheese, avocados and we even added a little lime juice and pronto, we felt like we were in an exclusive cantina in Mexico. My family and even my two year old loved it. I’m going to be making this a lot this winter. I’m taking some to work with me tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
