Taco Soup


This is too easy. However it is like tacos when you are out of some of the ingredients and you get to eat it with tortilla chips, or in our family Fritos. And any meal that calls for Fritos is going to be pretty popular.

3/4 lbs. ground beef, brown and drain off the fat
1 small brown onion
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn

Saute the onion and add back the drained meat and the cans. Do not drain the cans, just dump. Add the seasoning and then enough water just to cover everything. Bring to a boil and then simmer for thirty minutes.

You can also add any leftover veggies that you might have. Chop as fine as you need to to sneak it in if the kids don't like it. You can also add any other leftover Mexican sauces or salsa that might be laying around.

Now for the good stuff. Serve the soup in a bowl and have the following on hand to sprinkle on the soup: shredded cheese, sour cream, olives, green onions, green peppers. Use Fritos to either sprinkle or dip into soup. You can use any tortilla chips, but Fritos Scoops are the best ... and favorite.
