What can you make that's quicker than chili but tastes somewhat the same? Why, by George, you can make taco soup.
It's been so rainy and cold here lately that I've been craving chili but with our crazy schedules, I haven't had time to make a good pot of the stuff. This taco soup is so easy that a 5 year old could put it together. Brown some ground beef, throw in a diced onion, and dump in a million cans of things. Simple!
Recipe courtesy of my mom (Not sure the original source)
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans
1 (15 oz) can Bush's Chili Beans
1 can Ro-Tel
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
16 oz frozen corn
1 packet Taco Seasoning
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
In a Dutch oven, brown the beef and onion together. If necessary, drain the fat. Add in all other ingredients, ending with the seasonings. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to low and simmer for additional 10-15 minutes.
