Delicious Taco Soup!

We love this delicious soup, especially my husband Gary! It is easy to make and feeds a crowd, with at least 12 hearty bowls from each batch! I hope your family will enjoy it too. We seem to “eat by the weather” around our home, and this Taco Soup is delicious at the first hint of some crisp Fall weather and also on a cold winter’s day. Enjoy! (You may half this recipe easily!)

2 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef, browned
1 large onion, diced, saute in 1 tsp.of olive oil (I usually just put it in the microwave for 3 minutes with a splash of olive oil)
2 packages of Taco seasoning mix – your choice of flavor!
2 packages of Ranch dressing mix
4 cans of beans, do not drain! Choose from your favorites: kidney, pinto, black, great Northern
2 14.5 oz. cans of diced tomatoes, chili style is good to use if you like a little extra spice
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes & chilies
1 16 oz. package of frozen white corn or 2 cans of white corn (drained)
4 cups of water

  1. Brown beef and then sprinkle both the Taco & Ranch seasoning packages on the meat, stir well.
  2. Add the onion you have pre-cooked and stir in well with browned beef and seasonings. Simmer a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the 4 cans of beans, remember do not drain.
  4. Now pour in the 2 cans of tomatoes and the Rotel tomatoes/chiles. Stir well.
  5. Add the 16 oz. package of frozen white corn or the 2 cans of canned corn (drained).
  6. Add the 4 cups of water and simmer everything for 2 – 3 hours.

Delicious Toppings: Chili-Cheese Fritos, Plain Fritos, Tostitos, sour cream, diced jalepenos, grated cheese, diced avocados.

This soup freezes well too. I pour it into a gallon size freezer bag and then it will easily lay down flat in your freezer.
