Taco Soup Baby...

If you're somewhere November's supposed to be...not 70 degrees.

taco soup

Really, this couldn't be easier.  It's a one pot dish and my kids both really enjoy it.  So, if you maybe have picky kids....I'm not saying My Youngest is a picky, that's exactly what I'm saying.  She struggles to eat chili, but will gobble this right up.  So give this a try next time you want to make soup.

Let me just say, in advance that I'm not giving all ingredients in exact measurements.  For me, cooking oftentimes is using what I've got on hand.  I may not always have something.  So, if you don't want to go to the store...improvise.  It's really easy to do with soup.  And, just pay attention to it.  If you don't think it looks like it has enough liquid.  Add some water or more tomatoes.  Also, taste it.  Decide if it tastes good. 

1.5 lbs ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 package corn
1 64 oz. bottle V8...or bottled tomatoes of a different variety
1 can crushed tomatoes
3 or 4 cans canned beans, drained
2 packages taco seasoning

Saute the onion in medium saucepan until softened.  Add the ground beef and cook until browned.  Season with salt and pepper.

Add the tomatoes, corn, beans and taco seasoning.  Bring to a boil, then let simmer for a couple of hours...if you have the time.  If not, it doesn't need a couple of hours but the flavor sure gets better.

When you serve, make sure you have shredded cheese, maybe some sour cream and Frito's or corn chips.  Delicious!  Corn bread makes a great side dish for this one.

My Youngest was a Rainbow Butterfly Princess.  She came up with this all on her own.  I did the face paint.  Love her creativity. She is such a girly girl.

My Oldest putting on her "brave" face.  She is my drama queen.  We had her sleep in braids so she'd have curly hair.  Looks so pretty in that dark teal dress.  The real reason she wanted to be Merida from because of the bow and arrow set that I let her have with it.  Now we know the truth. 

Thanks for reading everyone!
