Last Sunday at work, one of my nurse friends, Christie, told me about her Taco Soup recipe. She talked about how easy and delicious it was and I thought about it for the rest of the day. On the way home, I bought the ingredients and made it for dinner that night. Oh my gosh, was it good! Christie told me the basic ingredients that she used, and I added some of my favorite things and was able to put it together quickly and easily. You can add whatever else you would like, and make it as spicy as you want to.
1 - 1/2 lb ground chuck
1 onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 carton chicken broth, plus maybe about 1 cup of water
2 packages of Taco Seasoning Mix
1 can black beans, drained
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 package frozen corn
salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground chuck with onions and bell pepper. Drain. Combine all ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Top with crushed tortilla chips, cheese, and/or salsa.
Yield: About 6 servings
