You asked for it!

I'd like to dedicate this recipe to all my devoted fans. I would be nothing without you...

Taco Soup

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or turkey, OR chicken (shredded or cut-up)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cans beans, undrained (use any kind you like--I usually use one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans)
1 can corn, undrained
2 cans tomatoes, undrained (again, use whatever you like--I use petite diced)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix

Saute the meat and onion. Drain. Add remaining ingredients and I add about 2 cans of water (depending on what consistency you want.) Simmer 45 minutes, or put in the crockpot on low all day. Top with your favorite Mexican toppings and serve with corn bread or tortilla chips.

Note: This soup is impossible to mess up--you can change it anyway you like--add more or less of an ingredient, make it spicy, whatever you want!

Ahhh GG, I think you're ready for the big time. (perhaps your own blog on the side?) I love this post/recipe and no I don't make it quite like this so thanks for the twist on the Taco soup.

Actually Sister Scrumptious, I used Bon-Bon's corn bread muffin recipe which can be found on her "Mexican Corn Chowder" post. They were yummy--Kudos to Bon-Bon!
