Good to Eat

A cool September day calls for...





Taco Soup! I know it's not very original but nothing makes my guys happier. You do have the recipe, right? If not, here's my easy peasy version:
Taco Soup
2 lbs. ground beef
1 large chopped onion
small can of green chilies
Taco Seasoning to taste - 1 or 2 packets
Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing packet
Rotel tomatoes-2 cans
hominy - 1 can
Ranch Style Beans - 1 or 2 cans
Cook the ground beef and onions. Add all the other ingredients and simmer for an hour or two.
*This is a very forgiving recipe...you really can't goof it up. If you look at other recipes on line you may find something else that sounds yummy. This is just the simple version I've resorted to over the years. Some recipes call for corn but I don't care for the sweetness of it.

Yum, this sounds delicious. I am going to copy this one and give it a try. Have you ever made chicken tortilla soup? It's delicious too.
Thanks for sharing. When the evenings get cooler, this will hit the spot.

Have a great day.

Stacey,
I just made this and took it to work yesterday for one of the girls birthdays. Everyone loved it! I made it Sunday night, because you know this is just one of those recipes that is even better the second time around!
True, it is a very forgiving recipe. I usually end up adding a can of Ro-Tel! And to top it off, guacamole and sour cream please!
Have a great day!
Hugs,
Cindy
