*updated* forgot the 1/2 cup salsa. added 7/24/11
Last night I decided to to make Taco Soup. After melting my pot and thawing out the wrong meat I finally got it made. I read several recipes online to get an idea of what people put in taco soup. Then I went to my cubbord to see what I had, this is what I came up with. My family LOVED it. It ended up having great flavor.
1 pound of ground beef
1 can white beans
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1 can diced tomatoes with chillies
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can diced chilies
2 cans tomato soup
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 onion (I used dried because I did have an onion)
1 pouch of ranch dressing.
1/2 pouch of taco seasoning(you can add more, I don't like this flavor to strong)
I browned my beef in a large pot. Then add onion and taco seasoning. After onion is soft add the rest of the ingredients. I let it boil for about 10 min. Then I turned it down on very low for about 45 min. I watched it close and occasionally stirred it. I let it simmer that long because we were waiting for my husband to come home. I have been told the longer you let it simmer the better the flavor. If you are in a hurry it should be fine as long as its hot. We topped our soup off with a little cheese and tortilla chips. Hope you like it!
