TACO SOUP

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (I use ground turkey.)
1 envelope taco seasoning (I make my own. I'll share the recipe below.)
2 cans whole kernel corn, undrained
2 cans ranch style or chili beans
2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
Cook ground meat, add seasonings, corn, tomatoes, and beans. Simmer. Serve with tortilla chips, cheese, or flour tortillas.

(
This recipe was given to me by my daughter-in-law, Angie, years ago (I think she got it from Weight Watchers), and it has become one of our family favorites. It is very, VERY good...especially on a cold and rainy day!)
TACO SEASONING MIX
(This recipe makes the best tacos!)

2 teaspoons instant minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried red pepper
1/2 teaspoon instant minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl until evenly distributed. Spoon mixture onto a 6-inch square of aluminum foil and fold to make airtight. Label. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within 6 months. Makes 1 package (about 2 tablespoons) TACO SEASONING MIX. To make additional packages increase ingredient amounts proportionately.

  1. I'm enjoying your blog posts as I'm able to read them. I think I will enjoy my little house. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to fit in what I really need and want to keep. I'm sure another sale is coming because this house is only about half the size of my last place.

    Blessings,
    Laura
