Taco Soup


I am always looking for quick,and easy meals for my family. I do not enjoy cooking so if it was up to me we would eat out every night. My family would prefer to eat at home, and plus it cost so much for a family of 5 to eat out. So if I can find some thing to throw in the crock pot I am one happy mama. My friend, Summer, told me about a recipe for taco soup. She had found it at Crockin' Girls along with a ton of other great recipes. It was a hit with my family,and it will definitely be on our list of future meals.

I browned the meat before I left for work,and dumped it all in the crockpot. Since nothing really had to cook just heat up, I put it on warm all day. When I got home it was nice,and hot. Hope you enjoy!

1 can light red kidney beans

1 can pinto beans

1 can black beans

1 can great northern beans

1 can diced tomatoes with garlic

1 can rotel tomatoes

1 can corn

1 lb ground beef

1 envelope taco seasoning

1 envelope ranch dressing mix

fritos for topping

shredded cheese for topping

Brown and drain meat, add all ingredients except Fritos and cheese (DO NOT drain any cans except black don't have to drain black beans but if you don't your soup will turn dark and not as pretty!) and cook until hot. I top with Fritos and shredded cheese. Easiest recipe ever and it makes a LOT of soup!

We left out the black beans,and corn. We also topped it with sour cream.
