Santa Fe Soup

This recipe is something I make a lot. It's easy, it's cheap, and it feeds a lot of people (or a couple of people a lot of times). I've seen variations of this recipe on the internet, but this is the way I make it. I got this recipe from a friend about 10 years ago. She got it from her sister. I don't know where her sister got it, but I'm glad she passed it on. I've also passed it on. To a lot of people. I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like it. I hope you'll like it too.

Santa Fe Soup
1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 onion (chopped)
1 can of Rotel tomatoes with chilies
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can northern beans
1 can black beans

Brown your ground beef, drain off the fat and return to the pot. Add the chopped up onion and cook a little bit more., then add the taco seasoning and stir it up real good.
Open all the cans of stuff, but don't drain them, and pour them in the pot. See, I told you this was easy.

Stir it up real good again and bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer about 45 minutes or until you get really hungry and don't want to wait any more.

Put it in a bowl and add some shredded cheese of your choice and sour cream if you like. Grab some tortilla chips and om nom nom. (That's lolspeak for eat it up!)

that looks really good, especially for a cold, rainy day! i make a similar taco soup (got the recipe from Weight Watchers) that includes a pack of ranch dressing mix - very good

Yummy! I am like Wifey. I have one that is similar that includes ranch dressing. Considering how cold it is today, I would love some soup.
