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!
