Mmmm, mmm, good - Taco Soup
I had taco soup at a mexican restaurant here in Texas. It was really yummy! By looking at it, I figured it had to be pretty easy to make and has a lot of protein. In searching the net, it seems that the recipes are pretty standard. So, I made a big pot yesterday. It is AWESOME! I had to post the recipe here for anyone that is interested.
1 pound ground lean ground beef (I used ground sirloin - leanest I could find)
1 onion -- chopped
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix -- (small)
1 pkg Taco seanoning Mix
1 can kidney beans (I used the ones with jalenpenos for added zing)
1 can pinto beans
1 can corn
1 can Rotel
1 can stewed chopped tomatoes
1-2 cans chicken broth depending on how soupy you want it - I used two cans
Brown meat with onion, drain excess fat, add all ingredients, simmer to blend flavors. Estimated calorie content is 100 calories per cup
PS - Go Seahawks!
