I had hoped to have a slew of Christmas recipes for you to enjoy but when did they make Christmas so early this year? Kidding, but boy it did sneak up on me. So, I will hopefully have something later on this week for you to make for Christmas. In the meantime, enjoy this taco soup.
I made this last week for a party and, with the addition of some extra ingredients, we ate on it a few other times, too. It's delicious! It's also very easy and versatile, as you can make it on the stovetop or in a crock pot.
source unknown (I got it from a former coworker)
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained of any fat
2 cans chili beans
1 can Ro-Tel or diced tomatoes with green chilis
1 can regular diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 can mexicorn
1 package taco seasoning
1 package ranch dressing mix
Combine all ingredients and heat through. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, etc.
- Didn't I tell you this was easy!
- If you aren't such a red meat fan, try ground turkey or chicken. If you're vegetarian, omit the meat altogether. Add extra beans if you want.
- I like to use mild Ro-Tel because I feel it's well spiced when mild. Go for regular or hot if you're a heat freak.
- I use the 8 oz can tomato sauce, but I am sure you could use larger.
