Taco Soup (For Scoop)
« on: July 25, 2012, 12:37:56 PM »
Easy cheesie meal and really good.

I use 2 cans kidney beans, 1 can of kernal corn, 1 can Ro-Tel, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 package Ranch dressing mix, 1 package taco seasoning mix, and about a pound of beef (more if you’d like, I usually use 2 lbs), 1 1/2 cups water.

Cook your ground beef until brown (I usually add a little onion powder and garlic salt while it's cooking.)  Drain and dump in a pot.  Dump in everything else, juices and all.  Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  (Or I dump everything in the crock pot and let it cook on low for a couple of hours if I'm in no hurry).

That's it.  I serve it will tortilla chips, crumbled up in the bottom of the bowl, soup over it.  Little shredded cheddar or your fav cheese on top with some sour cream.  It's yummy.

Thanks Pooh!  That sounds delicious.  I had to Google Ro-Tel though.  I don't think it's readily available in Canada.  (We're not-so-much Tex-Mex!)

Oh, DH is going to love me for this!!!  Thanks Pooh!  Maybe I'll get even fancier and make those homemade taco bowls on the other thread too!

You guys are welcome.  Basically Scoop, it's diced tomatoes with green chiles and some spices.  You could substitute I'm sure.

Lol Pam.  It's pretty juicy so I don't think the shells would hold up long!
