It's a soup kinda day

So yesterday it was 45 degrees, drizzeling and foggy. Fall has come to Colorado and I was in the mood for soup!
Upon asking my children the usual question of the day, "What sounds good for dinner?" Jaxson hollers out tacos and Shay agrees. Really? That just doesn't sound good. Yes that's me pouting. So I made a compromise and made Taco soup. It was really good and the whole family liked it. I thought I would share it with everyone for their rainy day dinner. Enjoy
Taco Soup
1 lb. ground turkey or beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 pkg ranch dressing mix (any brand)
1 pkg taco seasoning (any brand)
1 can pinto beans
1 can chili beans
1can whole kernel corn
1 can mexican style tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes

Brown 1lb hamburger with 1/2 of an onion chopped fine and drain it.

Add the taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix to the beef.

Then add all of your canned ingredients without draining them.

Simmer one hour on medium heat.
I had mine with sour cream, cheese, garnished with green onions and lots of Fritos.


  1. Well look at you- miss bloggy queen! Excellent post! This soup looks yummo. You've always been really good at soup.

  2. That's funny cuz your right, I have always been a soup person huh?

  3. Yum! this looks good. I will have to try this toward the end of the week when our weather turns cool and rainy- not that it wouldn't taste good on any day, but there is something about soup and dreary days.

  4. One of my favorites! You know, it freezes really well and if you count Weight Watcher points, it's only 3 per serving!
