Mexican Taco Stew

I love soups! I adapted this recipe from the Whole Foods website. It is simple and flavorful and goes great with a green salad for dinner. Top with tortilla chips. Yum!

Mexican Taco Stew
adapted from Whole Foods

1 lb pound ground beef or turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 package taco seasoning (about 4 T)
4 cups chicken broth
1 large zucchini or summer squash, cut into small cubes (optional)
1 (15-ounce) can black beans
2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn kernels or 1 can corn
1-2 cups medium salsa

Brown meat in a large pot over medium high heat. Drain, remove and set aside. In the same pot, sauté onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add meat back to pot and sprinkle mixture with taco seasoning to blend. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes.
