Taco Soup

 

This was a recipe that was given to me by my cousin.  She had all of the cousins over one night and had each person bring an ingredient for the soup.  It simmered while we socialized.  I thought that was a neat idea for everyone to bring an ingredient.  It is a very good soup for a cold winter's day.
1 lb Hamburger
1 Onion, chopped
3-16 oz. Dark Kidney Beans, undrained
1-16 oz. Can of Whole Corn, undrained
1-16 oz. can Chopped Tomatoes, undrained
1-15oz. can Tomato Sauce
1 1/2 c. Water
1-4 1/2 oz can chopped chilies
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
1 packet of Ranch dressing mix (dry)

Brown hamburger and onion together, then add the rest of the ingredients.  Boil & let simmer for 15 minutes.

Top with anything you would put on your taco salad: cheese, lettuce, tortilla chips, tomatoes, olives, etc.

You gave me this one a few years ago, and it's a favorite when the girls come over!!! It's perfect for those winter get togethers!

This recipe was a HIT last night! Everyone in my family loved it and went back for seconds. I will definitely use this recipe over and over. Toppings I layered on top of the soup(in individual bowls): cheddar cheese, olives, frito lays chips, sour cream and green onions. DELICIOUS!

Ceci,

We tried this and really liked it! The only "problem" was that I started making it and Jeff finished it (since I had to take Josiah to a violin lesson). Jeff was...ahem...shall we say, GENEROUS in the way he added the taco seasoning and the chilies. It turned out a little spicy for those of us in my family who have milder tongues. Nothing that a little extra sour cream and cheese on top couldn't cool down though. :)

I like the idea of having guests bring one of the ingredients for this and preparing it together!
