taco soup.

some of you have asked for that taco soup recipe i mentioned last week.

here it is!  it's super easy.


TACO SOUP

1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 package taco seasoning mix
2 cups water
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
corn chips

1. in a large saucepan, brown ground beef with inion.  drain.
2. get a large pot, put in meat and stir in seasoning mix and water.
3. drain kidney beans and corn.  add to mixture.
4. mix in tomatoes.  simmer 20 minutes.

makes 6 cups.

serve with chips and whatever else!  we added grated cheese, but my recipe also suggests: sour cream, sliced avocado, chopped tomatoes, chopped green onion, and cilantro.

we also decided to double the recipe, so we can have left overs for lunch.


thanks for all your recipe suggestions!  you are great!

I use a very similar recipe in the crockpot. I put about 4 uncooked chicken breasts in the crockpot, add all the canned stuff, cook for about 6-8 hours on low. Before serving I shred the chicken. So yummy, perfect for fall!

I'm Claire Thorley White's mom. Hello to you! Just a little ditty about taco soup; your recipe is very close to mine but someone once suggested that I add a package of the dry ranch dressing or dip mix. Just the mix. Oh, my! Added a lovely layer to a savory soup! I love soup weather!
