Taco Soup/Chili

Finally, here is the taco soup/mexican chili recipe so many friends have been asking for.  Sorry it took me so long!  It is absolutely YUMMY though, so it’s worth the wait.  I got it from a friend several years back and since then, everyone who has tasted it has loved it.  Definitely a crowd pleaser.  Sorry I don’t have a picture for it yet, but the next time I make it, I will be sure to add one.

Taco Soup – makes 12 – 1 cup servings

1 lb. ground turkey or lean ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

1 pkg. Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix

1 pkg. Taco Seasoning mix

1 can pinto beans

1 can black beans or kidney beans or chili hot beans

1 can whole kernel corn

1 can stewed tomatoes (Mexican flavor)

1 can stewed tomatoes (any flavor)

1 8oz container of sour cream

Brown meat and onions, drain. Mix Ranch dressing mix and taco seasoning mix into meat and put into pot (or crockpot).  Cut up stewed tomatoes into smaller bites, adding to pot.  Then, without draining the cans, add all of the other ingredients.  Stir well and simmer 1 hour, or put in your crockpot on low all day to simmer.

This is wonderful served with baked tortilla chips and some sour cream on top (or you can stir it in before you serve)!
