Taco Soup

This is the 1st kitchen that I started my obsession with cooking and taking pictures in…
Our little kitchen!

2nd Kitchen where I cooked a great many foods…Oh to be that kitchen!
My New Kitchen

and of course my kitchen now, that you have seen so many pictures of that I figured you didn’t need any pictures this time…

My FAVORITE spot in my WHOLE house is the Kitchen! But you didn’t know that already!? I spend MANY hours in my kitchen. I have stood hours and hours cooking and baking and taking pictures…I stand SO much that I am starting to get Varicose veins. Hereditary in my family…Oh well I will keep baking and cooking!

So I got the idea from this Recipe from Pinterest

Then I just made it my own..check it out!

what you will need:
DSC_0002-1

1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 can Original Rotel (You could use hot)
1 Can Black Beans
1 Can Pinto (Pink) Beans
1 Can of Corn
2 cans Chopped, Green Chilies
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
1 Packet Ranch dressing mix
2 pounds Ground beef
Also (not in the picture) 32 OZ of Chicken broth

You will also need condiments! Condiments are SO IMPORTANT! I am the Condiment QUEEN!

You will need:

Grated Cheddar Cheese
Salsa
Sour Cream
Tortilla chips
whatever sounds good to you that you like on your tacos…

Get a dutch oven or big deep pot and preheat it to medium heat and throw your meat in (I only got about a pound of ground beef and that is what you see here, I have it on the recipe as 2 pounds, as I only had a pound and that was NOT enough meat in the soup, so get 2 or more) You could even use ground Turkey if you wanted too…

Then get you a Manly Man Named Normy to help ground that meat up!

I hate grounding meat up! I have no patience to stand at the stove and mash it up! So I have Normy help me here and while he is grounding it up I am chopping veggies and getting other stuff ready!

and when I ground the meat up I can’t get it this small for some reason! I am challenged in many ways!

Let soup simmer with the lid on for about 30 minutes so all the flavors can mingle…

Then get a bowl and serve it up

I added cheese and chips to mine, I also made Mexican Rice and put a big spoonful in the bottom of the bowl and then poured the soup over it…
