        • We make a taco soup that could easily be lowfat. And it is a quick meal. I don’t worry about that but many of the items could be substituted easily! Here is my recipe.
          Taco Soup
          1 lb. hamburger (ground turkey)
          1 medium onion
          Brown and drain any grease
          then add
          1 package taco seasoning
          1 can (11 oz) Mexicorn (I use Green Giant)
          1 can (14 oz) Diced Tomatoes with green chilies
          1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes (these I blend in the blender)
          Heat until hot, serve with taco chips, sour cream and cheese.
          They do make taco chips that area baked, lowfat sour cream, and lowfat cheese.

        • Try this one - it’s the perfect fall soup!

          Slow Cooker Pear Delicata Squash Soup

              * 1 delicata squash, peeled and cubed (you can use butternut squash if you can’t find a delicata)

              * 2 pears, peeled and cored then cubed

              * 1 small onion, minced

              * 1 garlic clove, minced

              * 4 cups vegetable stock  

              * 1 Tb Port (or red wine)

              * sprig of fresh thyme

              * salt and pepper

          Throw everything into the slow cooker and cook on low 6 - 10 hours. Remove the thyme spring and use a hand blender to puree everything together. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Top with sage pesto, or finely chopped pistachios.
