Taco Soup

For Groundhog's Day, we went to Colin and Sam's for fun, food, and games. Sam made Taco Soup and the DH wondered why we never had that. It's one of the easiest things to make and takes all of five minutes to put together. Add to that that it tastes great and you have the makings of a great, easy meal.

Taco Soup

1 pound hamburger
1 onion chopped
1 16-ounce can tomato sauce
1 can whole tomatoes
1 16-ounce can corn (I use ½ cup frozen corn)
1 small can green chilies (I never use this much – put a little in and then taste it)
1 package taco seasoning
1 can small red beans
1 can chili beans
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown hamburger and pour off grease. Add rest of the ingredients and simmer. Garnish with chips, grated cheese, sour cream, and avocado.

Mmmmmm. I love love love taco soup. Not only because it is so tasty but because it is so easy to make. I had never thought of topping it with avacado, though. That makes it sound even better! =)

Not only is it ever so yummy, but there's the added bonus of getting to blow the covers off the bed that night, sorry honey.

We love Taco Soup-and the kids will all eat it. We eat it with chips, cheese and guacamole or just cut up avocado. Yummy, makes me hungry.
