Quick and Easy Taco Soup!

I made this Taco Soup on Sunday night and knew I had to share it with you guys immediately. I don't know about you all but I need more quick fix and healthy dinners in my life, and this one could be a staple for fall. I slightly modified the original recipe by substituting turkey in for ground beef to make it even lighter. I put a handful of multigrain tortilla chips on top with a dollop of sour cream. SO good y'all. And I think it took me less than 15 minutes to throw it together. I made it around 4 pm and then let it simmer on low until it was time for dinner, which made the dinner hour so much less hectic.





Ingredients:

1- 1.5 lbs ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups water
1 can chili beans (do not drain)
1 can corn (drained)
1 can pinto beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can stewed tomatoes (do not drain)
1 can petite diced tomatoes (do not drain)
1 packet ranch seasoning mix
 (all cans are standard size cans)

toppings- tortilla chips, sour cream, shredded cheese

Directions:

-In a soup pot over medium-high heat, cook ground turkey until fully cooked. Drain. Return to soup pot and add taco seasoning and mix together.
-Add in the remaining ingredients and stir together. I broke up the stewed tomatoes with a knife before I added them in (you could also blend them).
-Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes, or longer if desired.
-Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream, and shredded cheese!

Labor Day Sales

Happy Saturday y'all! I wanted to pop in and share a few things on my radar. J.Crew is really nailing it with the casual weekend wear that is right up my alley. Stripes and navy seem perfect right now! The great news is they are offering 30% off your purchase with code YESPLEASE for Labor Day. Let's get started, shall we?


Love, love this striped button up turtleneck, I think it would be perfect with jean shorts while it is still pretty warm here, but I want to feel fall-ish.



This zip up jacket is so cute!! I would wear it with my fave leggings or jeans. Great staple piece.


I'm in love with the shade of green in this quilted jacket. The color is so rich and I've been wanting something in this color for fall!


These running shorts are on major sale- love this pretty blue!


Popping over to J.Crew Factorty, I bought this cute bell sleeve t-shirt several weeks ago and have gotten a ton of compliments on it. It's a nice weight and seems like it is a great quality.


I also got this pretty ruffled sleeve top, I haven't had a chance to wear it yet but I love a good white top. Seriously, they are closet favorites!


I know this isn't for fall but this embroidered linen top that I had this summer was on constant rotation, and was another fave. The embroidery makes it seem like it would be much more expensive than the heck of a deal pricetag that is on it right now!

Hope y'all have a great long weekend! Lots of good food and football is in our forecast for this rainy Saturday :)
