So, here is one of our most favorite soup recipes for those chilly nights when you want to stay in your pj's all day. Also, for those busy days when you don't have any extra time to prepare a huge meal. All this requires is cooking hamburger meat and throwing in the rest of your ingredients. Try this yummy Taco Soup recipe. You can fix the recipe to include the ingredients your family may love.
2 lb. ground beef, browned
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 onion chopped
1 (16 oz.) can hominy
1 (16 oz.) can kernel corn
1 (16 oz.) can pinto beans
1 (16 oz.) can red kidney beans
1 can rotel, chopped
2 (16 oz.) cans tomatoes, blended
1 (1 oz.) package taco mix
1 (1 oz.) package ranch dressing mix
The Taco Soup Recipe I use for my family includes some black beans in place of the hominy (we are not too crazy about hominy). I will also leave out the garlic and onion as well, unless I am taking it as a dish to church or for another family. Most people love the onions and garlic, but I am not an onion-lover. Trying to teach myself how much better the taste can be with those two ingredients.
The recipe above is the original and this is how I used it.
Corn, kidney beans, black beans, rotel, diced tomatoes, 1 package of taco mix and 1 package of ranch dressing mix
Also 2 lbs of browned hamburger meat
Combine all ingredients, including the liquid from the cans and pour into a large pot or crockpot (love the crockpot for this one). Cook slowly for as long as possible...the longer, the better. Then serve with...
Corn chips (my husband's favorite)...
Or crackers! And my daughter's favorite, which we were out of the night I made this soup (SOUR CREAM)!
Then eat up! The leftovers will taste delicious as well!
