Taco Soup



***Alrighty, here's the Taco Soup recipe that I mentioned in my Halloween post below. We had so much fun making this at our little Halloween party. It was SUPER easy to make, and you know that I love any recipe that I can use my Dutch Oven on. ;)

I found this recipe on Monica's food blog, Buon Appetito! ...be sure to hop over and check her site out also!

I'll definitely be making this again in the upcoming chilly months. It will be perfect on a cold winter night...plus, it couldn't be easier to throw together. The only change that I made to the original recipe was the addition of water...you'll see my notes below.

Enjoy!***

Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef (I use round)
1 onion, chopped
1 can chili beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn, drained
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
2 to 4 cups water (add water until your desired consistency is reached)
Directions:
Heat dutch oven to medium heat. Add about 1 tbsp. olive oil to pot, and saute the onion until softened (about 3 - 5 minutes). Add the ground beef and brown.
Drain the beef on paper towels to remove the excess oil. Add beef/onion mixture back to dutch oven.

Add all other ingredients and cook on Med to Med-Hi for about 30 minutes, covered.

Serve with Fritos, shredded cheese, and sour cream if desired.

Great soup, especially when it's really chilly outside, like right now in France :-)

We make this soup at my house, too, only we add a bottle of beer. The beer makes it extra yummy!
