Taco Soup

This soup is always a big hit for supper in the colder months. It can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and it's yummy with some corn bread or tortillas. Even though you may find an ingredient you don't normally like, you will be pleasantly surprised at how good this tastes when everything is combined.

1 lb ground hamburger meat or ground turkey
1 can Pinto or Black Beans (I use one can of each)
1 can Great Northern Beans or Navy Beans
1 can Whole Kernal Corn
1 can Hominy (I know what you're thinking, but trust me for the tortilla taste)
2 cans diced Tomatoes with Chiles (Ro-Tel)
1 package Taco Seasoning
1 package dry Ranch Dressing Mix

Sauté 1 cup diced onions and 1 cup diced sweet peppers in a tablespoon of olive oil before you add the meat.

Brown ground meat; add ingredients from each can including liquid; add taco mix and ranch dressing mix; stir all ingredients until well combined and simmer about 20 minutes until hot through and through. You can add water to taste - not required but it will make a more soupy dish.

Serving suggestion: Try topping with a dollop of sour cream, grated cheese, a little diced onion and some chopped cilantro just before serving.
