Recipe - Taco Soup

Now that the kids are back in school and cooler temps are approaching, it's time to get into the kitchen and create some warm, family meals.  Here's a recipe for you to try -



  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 lg chopped onion sautéed with beef
  • 2 cans kidney beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1- 15 oz can Rotel
  • 1-15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1-1/2 cups of water

Combine all ingredients, bring to a boil and then simmer for fifteen minutes.  Don't drain cans - add all liquids!  Add sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips as a garnish. 

Patty Stamper, of Burlington, KY, says, "I like to use black beans instead of kidney beans, and add more corn than the recipe calls for.  It is such an easy recipe and it is always a crowd pleaser."
