This week has been a blur! I don't really know where the week went - but all of a sudden it's another week! Good grief - we are almost half way through the month of March already!
I wrote last week that IF I didn't fix the Easy Taco Soup on Thursday night that it would come off the menu list FOREVER. Well, guess what -
This is Easy Taco Soup!
Yahoo! I actually fixed it and it was good and easy. I chopped, cooked and served it in 45 minutes. (I will admit that the hamburger I used was already cooked and was out of the freezer) However, it was till quick and easy to fix.
If you are interested - here is the recipe:
Easy Taco Soup
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1-1/2 cup water
1 15oz. can corn (drained)
3 15oz. cans Mexican Chili Beans
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 14oz. can diced tomatoes (I used Rotel)
1 4oz. can chopped green chilies (optional - I didn't use)
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
Garnish: shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream.
Place ground beef and onion in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook until beef is browned and onion is tender, stirring to break up meat. Drain. Stir in remaining ingredients except garnish; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon soup into bowls; top with desired toppings.
Serves 6 to 8
I served it with tortilla chips - shredded cheese and the sour cream.
YUMMY!!! Mountain Man even said that it was a keeper (after his avoidance tactics for the last couple of months that was a testimony in itself!) Also, I'll confess a little secret - I forgot the Taco Seasoning Mix - and it was still good! Give it a try - I think you might like it!
