Taco Soup

This recipe was given to me when I signed up to prepare a meal as part of teacher appreciation at my daughter's preschool. All of the volunteers were to prepare the soup and freeze half of it to send in for one of the teachers. In our house we serve it with Fritos Scoops, shredded cheddar and sour cream! I love it because you can basically "dump" everything in.
Taco Soup
2 cups water
2 (28oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 (15oz) can black beans - drained
1 (15oz) can great northern beans - drained
1 (15oz) can corn - drained
1 (4.5oz) can green chiles
1 pound ground beef
1 diced onion
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 package taco seasoning mix
Brown meat and onions, drain. Add all other ingredients and simmer. Serve with fritos, sour cream and shredded cheese.


  1. Diane,

    Kim Stafford gave me this recipe, and I made this, along with your chicken/wild rice casserole. They were both DELICIOUS! I'm now a faithful follower of your blog! Keep up the good cookin'!
