  • Ground Beef 160° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, working in batches, if necessary.

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a clean cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 1, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using 10 oz. ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 1, breaking up until no pink remains and pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using 20 oz. ground pork, follow same instructions as above, working in batches, if necessary

  1. 1

    Cook the Ground Beef

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground beef and diced peppers to hot pot. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Add taco seasoning and stir to combine.

  2. 2

    Start the Soup

    Stir in flour until no dry flour remains in pot.

    Stir in diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and 11/2 cups water. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cook until slightly thickened, 5-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Finish Soup and Prepare Green Onions

    Place softened cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Add 1 Tbsp. soup broth from medium pot and whisk or stir vigorously until combined. If cream cheese is still thick, add another 1 Tbsp. soup broth.

    Add cream cheese-broth mixture to medium pot, one spoonful at a time, and stir until combined.

    Trim green onions and thinly slice.
