Taco Soup Recipe

I have mentioned this before but I am a seasonal eater.

I like cool foods in the summer and warm foods in the winter.

And I know its September but today the temperature only got to 71 degrees and I consider that Winter.

So I knew I would want something warm for dinner.

The past couple of weeks, I have started planning my meals out on Sunday night for the entire next week.

And yesterday it was rainy and cool (to me) so I planned to make a warm meal for Monday night.

I have this great Taco Soup recipe that I got out of the Kraft magazine last Winter and it is a perfect, quick meal.

Taco Soup
1 lb extra lean ground beef (or turkey meat if you roll that way, I don't)
1 onion, chopped
3 cans (151/2 oz each) mild chili beans, undrained
1 can (14 1/2 oz) whole tomatos, undrained
1 can (14 1/4 oz) corn, undrained
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 p kg (1 1/4 oz) Taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheese

  • Brown beef with onions
  • Add all remaining ingredients, except cheese. Stir breaking up tomatos. Bring to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat for 5 minutes stirring occasionally
  • Serve topped with cheese
This recipe is so easy and super yummy and VERY quick. Thanks Kraft!

I love taco soup! Hubs hates it, so I just take it to work when I make it. My recipe calls for a pkg of dry ranch dressing mix. It adds a little more to it and it is sooooo good!

mmm...taco soup! it sounds delish;)

it's averaging out around 55 degrees here now that it's Autumn...it's cooling down, but I've still been quite warm! I don't think it's THAT cold yet...hehe. 71 is still a comfortable heat though (to me)

Mmmm...I love hot soup in the fall. Kraft is the best -- but I heard a nasty rumor that they are going to stop sending their Food and Family magazine for free! :(
