Although poor Hubs.. when he saw the lineup for this week solemnly said "I don't think I'm ready for that yet." (Referring of course to the taco soup.) Did I mention how much I love to make soups? OOoohh, another great point.. I can start this bad boy at about 4:30ish-5ish.. we can go work out.. and it will still taste WONDERFUL when we get back. (And of course, leftovers always heat up as good as new.)
1 lb Hamburger Meat
1 packet Ranch seasoning/dip mix
1 packet Taco seasoning
1 can Mexican style stewed tomatoes (sometimes I just use regular ones if I can't find Mex. style)
1 can normal corn
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
Brown hamburger meat (salt and pepper to taste), drain, put in slow cooker or big ol' pot, add the rest of the ingredients and a couple (or whatever looks right) can fulls of water to pot. Let it cook on medium/low until temperature is just right.
We usually garnish ours with shredded cheddar and sour cream... and tortilla chips!
Hope you enjoy your *Season Of Soups*! =)
