#338 - taco soup

wish i had a better picture, because this doesn't do it justice

When my parents visited, my mom made this taco soup. It really good and really easy to make. I don't even like ground beef, but it is one of my favorite meals now.
Taco Soup
1 lb ground beef (I use organic meat, cook it really well and make sure the pieces of meat aren't too big...I have a thing about hamburger.)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 16oz can corn, drained or bag of frozen corn
1 16 oz can kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 28 oz can stewed tomatoes (ok, i am not a fan of canned tomatoes, but Trader Joe's uses a lining in their cans that is safer)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce (same)
corn chips
grated cheese
sour cream

*make this healthy, by draining the meat really good, add some veggies (ie: peas), skip the sour cream, skip the cheese, skip the chips, do add avocado slices to make it creamy)*

Brown ground beef. Drain. Saute chopped onion, add to ground beef. Stir in taco season, corn, kidney beans, stewed tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve topped with corn chips, sour cream and grated cheese. 8 servings.

Yummy! We also make a similar but it's with Chicken and Enchilada sauce as the base--then you add whatever else. I'm going to try this one though :)
