Tasty Tuesdays: Lowfat Turkey Chili Taco Soup

It's hard to believe that Mardi Gras was one week ago.  It seems like just yesterday, but it also seems like ages ago.  It's funny how you can plan all year for an event, and in just an instant, it's over.  With Mardi Gras behind us, tax season is in full swing.  That means late nights for this Nola Girl.  

I like having home cooked meals during tax season rather than staying late and eating dinner at the office.  It's nice to spend time with Mark, and eating takeout every night is no good for my hips (especially when work out time is limited).

This soup recipe is one of my favorites!  It's quick and easy and filled with ingredients you likely have in your pantry.  I like to add a little fresh cilantro and some lime juice, but it really is good just as it is.
