Taco Soup

Can you believe with all the taco-ish recipes I've posted I've never gotten around to taco soup? I temporarily forgot about it. The last time I made it I ate the leftovers every meal for days (it's good what can I say!) and burnt myself out for a while. Well, that stage didn't last long because this week I was hungry for it again! I've used several taco soup recipes, but this Duggar Family version is the one I keep coming back to. I love this with crushed up tortilla chips, sour cream, cheese and even black olives and a little lettuce. Enjoy :)

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 (4oz.) cans green chilies, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch or 1/3 c. liquid ranch dressing
1 cans hominy (or corn), undrained
3 (14 1/2 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (15oz.) cans kidney beans, undrained
2 (15oz.) cans pinto beans, undrained
1 3/4 c. water

Brown ground meat with onion. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to boil. Simmer 30 min. Serve w/ Tortilla chips, grated cheese & sour cream.

Mmm, love the addition of the ranch seasoning! I love all things taco-ish and this one sounds yummy!

Debbie said...

This does sound yummy! the perfect comfort food.

I love taco soup, too. I just pulled my last bag out of the freezer last week. It was just as good as when I first made it.

Tasty and affordable way to feed a family. I'll take some with crushed up chips too :).

Ditto on the addition of ranch seasoning although, I've never had Taco Soup. Hmmm...that just may have to change! Thanks for sharing, Heidi.

Sounds good! I might even get my son, who turns his nose up at soup, to eat this one!

My favorite during winter! :)

Ingrid said...

While I haven't made this recipe I have made taco soup. Good stuff!

just want to gobble it up!

Mary said...

Yum Yum! I love mine with those same toppings, and a sprinkle of green onion too.

I haven't made taco soup, but this sure sounds like a winner. Ole Sweetie-Pi is starting to appreciate Tex-Mex foods so am adding this to my stash. Thanks for sharing this so that we may enjoy it too.

Heidi, how much will this feed? I have 6 in my house - not 21!!!

You'll never believe what I did!!! Can you say d-u-m-b? My kids have been in serious withdrawls because they are missing their favorite show of all time - 18 Kids and Counting! Hello... I knew they had the baby but it didn't dawn on me that the show name had already changed to 19 Kids and Counting!!! I've been wondering why my Tivo wasn't recording them anymore!!! DUUHHHHH!!! Well, I hope I gave you a good laugh for today!!! ;O)

Heidi said...

Kathy-That is so funny! Your kids have missed a lot of episodes! Thank goodness for reruns :)

This is the amount of soup I made for our family of 5. I had some left for lunch the next day and enough to freeze a few portions for later. I would think it would work good for a family of 6. This was a cut version of the duggars recipe.
