Taco Soup

Taco Soup
From: swampbear

[Marie Antoinette] Let them eat soup! [/Marie Antoinette]

2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 can pinto beans (black beans work too)
1 can whole kernel corn ,drained
1 can stewed tomatoes - mexican style
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 pkg. ranch dressing (optional. I do if'n I have some and don't if'n I don't. I'm a rebel!)
2 1/2 cups water or more, to make soup broth

Brown ground beef and onions. Combine all ingredients in large pot and let simmer. It can be made on the stovetop in about an hour and a half or let hang out all day on low setting in your slow cooker/crock pot. I usually double the recipe and let it go all day in the slow cooker cause I like to make a lot. It freezes well.

Serve with grated cheese (your choice, be wild and crazy!) chopped onions, big glops of sour cream and tortilla chips. Don't be shy, go ahead and lick the bowl clean. I don't judge. Remember I'm a rebel with ranch dressin'!
