Taco Soup

This makes for a great weeknight meal!
It is very easy to make and fast.
I also love the option of making it two hours ahead,
that is very nice if you have a busy afternoon or evening.
It is also REALLY GOOD and filling!
Especially when topped with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips.



16 oz. can chili beans
16 oz. kidney beans
16 oz. can black beans
8 oz. can tomato sauce
15 oz. can diced stewed tomatoes
16 oz. can whole corn
16 oz. creamed corn
pkg. taco seasoning
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 lb. ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 onion, chopped
1 sm. can chopped green chilies

How to make:

1. Brown Ground beef and onion. Drain off fat.

2. Do not drain any of the canned foods. Add all ingredients to a crock pot or a large pot.

3. Simmer for 1 to 2 hours.

4. Serve warm and garnish with optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips or large Fritos Chips.

*to make your own tortilla strips: cut tortilla in strips ,cook in frying pan with olive oil and grated parmesan cheese until crisp.
