Really Yummy Taco Soup

Not to mention, really easy.

Really Yummy Taco Soup


1 ½ lbs. Ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, undrained
1 can (15 oz) black beans, undrained
1 can (15 oz) whole-kernel corn, undrained (See a pattern?)
1 can (28 oz) stewed tomatoes
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 or 2 packages taco seasoning mix, to taste

In a heavy stockpot, brown your ground beef and onion. Drain off the fat if you like.

Dump in everything else.
(I guess that makes this “Dump Soup.” If you call it that, and I did, I guarantee that your preschooler will be delighted.)

Simmer for about an hour and serve with:

A handful of tortilla chips (We like the lime kind)
Some shredded cheddar or a Mexican blend
1 dollop (Optional unless you’re me,
in which case it’s never optional.)

Oh and if your soup should seem too thick, toss in a can or two of water while it’s simmering.

Enjoy! Say a prayer for your big pregnant friend while you do so.

I also make something very similar with chicken in the crockpot. Chicken breast, taco seasoning, beans (two different kinds of whatever you have on hand) corn, rotel and that's it.

I am going to make your beef version tonight!

The picture is really great!

I learned a similar recipe that uses ranch style beans and also adds a package of dry ranch dressing mix. Funny, huh? But very good.

Oh, and yes, after calling it Taco Soup first I definitely make sure to throw "Dump Soup" in somewhere.

I make this and it is a hit with our large family but we use the Rotel and Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix packet.
