Healthy Taco Soup

Healthy Taco Soup

Taco Soup was my FAVORITE meals growing up. I honestly stopped eating it when I started competing because I didn’t know how to count the macros. Now that I realize the importance of focusing on healthy, whole foods instead of obsessing over counting numbers, I will definitely continue to implement this healthy version of taco soup on a regular basis.

What You’ll Need


Step 1 : Prepare The Protein

For this recipe, we used shredded chicken and grass-fed bison. You can use beef, ground turkey, or no meat at all if you’d like to make it a vegan dish!

Step 2 : Add Seasoning + Water

It’s important to add the seasoning (plus about 1 cup of water) with the meat before anything else and let simmer for about 10 minutes so the flavor really sticks.

Step 3 : Add Beans

We used 1 can of black beans, which need to be rinsed and drained or else your soup will not appear very appetizing. Then, 2 cans of chickpeas, which do not need to be drained. Stir well with protein.

Step 4 : Add Salsa, Corn and Bone Broth

Simply stir in the salsa, corn and bone broth next.

Step 5 : Let It Simmer

Let the soup simmer for at least 30 minutes before serving. The longer it simmers, the more flavor-licious it will be!

Step 6 : Top It Off!

My favorite toppings are avocado, Siete tortilla chips and dairy-free cheese or nutritional yeast! But you are free to get creative here!
