2 tbsp. chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tsp. taco seasoning mix
2 cups low-sodium beef, chicken, or vegetable broth

Bring a medium pot sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir onion and celery until browned, about 3 minutes. Add beef, garlic, and 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning, and cook and crumble until beef is fully cooked and veggies have softened, about 3 minutes.
Carefully add broth, tomato, corn, salt-free seasoning, and remaining 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
Cover and cook for 10 minutes, or until veggies are soft. Transfer to a large bowl.
Lightly crush taco shell, and distribute over the soup. Sprinkle with cheese.
