Taco Soup Recipe
Posted 22 October 2012 - 11:10 PM
2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 14.5 oz can whole kernel corn
2 16 oz cans of ranch style beans (I only used one can because I'm not a bean lover & it was fine)
* Maybe not everywhere but I know here - you find cans at the grocery store of ranch style beans. If you don't have those - substitute pinto or black or whatever you like.
3 cans of diced tomatos (maybe substitute 1 can rotel if you like spicy) (I got the garlic/onion kind and I think it gave it great flavor)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg Hidden Valley dressing mix
Brown and drain meat. Saute onions for a few minutes. Combine all ingredients the crockpot. Add chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve with shredded cheese and fritos. And sour cream.

It was a winner with everyone! Even picky DS who grumbled about the onions had seconds. I did use a can of Rotel and I also added some salsa (maybe 1/2 a cup) and used one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans. Next time I'll probably omit the chili powder altogether and use a bit more salsa for more of a "taco" flavor. None of us used sour cream, but we all topped it with a spoonful of shredded cheese!

I used a 32 oz can of crushed tomatoes and one small can of Rotel. I only used one lb. of ground beef, though. The recipe calls for 2 lbs. but I didn't want to make a huge amount the first time in case we didn't like it. Next time, I'll use 2 lbs. of ground beef and 2 cans of crushed tomatoes. I use crushed tomatoes in place of diced all the time because my kids have issues with lots of "chunks".
