Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Spiralized Taco Soup | No Thanks to Cake
I've loved Taco Soup for YEARS, and now I made this JC-friendly option for all of you lovelies, using the Classic Cheeseburger! Enjoy!
- 1 Jenny Craig Classic Cheeseburger
- ¾ cup canned diced tomatoes, Mexican style
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- ½ cup water
- 1 ½ tsp. taco seasoning
- 1 ½ tsp. ranch dressing mix powder
- 1 dash ground cumin
- salt and pepper
- ½ cup onion, spiralized
- ½ cup bell pepper, spiralized
- 2 roasted hatch chiles, sliced (optional)
- cooking spray
- chopped cilantro, for garnish
Separate the parts of the cheeseburger, removing the bun and the cheese from the burger. Cook your burger on a small plate in the microwave for 60 seconds and set aside.
In a sauce pan prepared with cooking spray, saute the onions and peppers until they are tender, about 5 minutes stirring often. Season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, chop the burger you warmed in the microwave and add it to the pan.
Add tomato sauce, tomatoes, water, and spices to the pan and stir to combine. Simmer for 8 minutes to allow for flavors to combine.
Chop the cheese you set aside earlier, as you’ll use it for a topping. Also finely chop some cilantro as well for garnish. Pour soup into a medium bowl and top with cheese and cilantro. Cheese will melt with the warmth of the soup. Serve and enjoy!
