Taco Soup

Oh this supper is one of our favorites!! It has just that right amount of spice to it. It is particularly good on a cold winter night, but even in the hot summer we find it yummy!

The Menu:
Taco Soup


The Way I made it my Own:
You can use ground beef or turkey, again, I usually use turkey, but we have tons of beef right now, so that is my ground "meat" of choice. I am sure this recipe is inspired by another recipe from somewhere, but I can only remember the taco soup I had at a Tastefully Simple party I had once, and this is somewhat what was in it minus the product they sell...

Taco Soup

Ingredients:

1 1/2-2 lb. ground meat
1 packet Ranch dressing seasoning mix
1 packet taco seasoning
1 cup corn
1 can black beans
1 can white (cannelloni) beans
1 can tomato sauce
1 can Rotel (or 2 depending on your mood!)
1 Rotel can water

Brown ground meat in large pot, add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and simmer about 20 minutes. Serve.

Notes: Serve with additional toppings such as nacho chips, sour cream, and diced avocado Yumilicious!!!
