Make this: Taco Soup.

New year, better eating. More homemade meals, less calories. This is the mantra of a lot of people (me included). After all, we've got to keep ourselves in check after a gluttonous Christmas season (bacon-jalapeno bites, anyone?).

I sifted through my google reader to find a recipe I wanted to make on the cheap and found this Taco Soup recipe from a foodie blog favorite, Our Best Bites. We made it the other night, not realizing that this recipe makes enough for a small army. No, really. It made about 14 servings of soup.

Pros of this recipe - economy, calories (it is a weight watcher, supposedly 4 points of 188 calories per serving), easy to make, and freezes well.

I followed the recipe straight on so follow the link above for details. Here's our results:

Ingredients - diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, corn, kidney beans, taco seasoning, onion, garlic, and beef. 
 Step One: brown your meat and saute the onions and garlic in with it.

 Step Two: Add rest of ingredients and heat, then simmer covered.

 Step Three: Serve (toppings optional and worth more calories

And because they are cute, my pups, being sweet to each other.

And now, to eat on that soup for days. And peddle it to friends and family. Seriously - 14 servings.
