taco soup

again, i followed a recipe and added a touch of my own suggestions. and it was perfect. in the past, i've just dumped random ingredients for taco soup, and it's always been too spicy or too lame. this was perfect. even gustavo (the soup nazi) thought so!

2lbs ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can green chiles
2 cans mexican style rotel
2 cans ranch style beans
2 cans black beans, drained
1 packet taco seasoning
1 cup water
1 beef bullion cube
1t each salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, red pepper flakes

saute ground beef with onion and garlic until beef is cooked. drain. combine all remaining ingredients along with beef mixture in a large soup pot. bring to boil on stove top then turn to medium and cover for 1-2 hours.

top with corn chips, cheese, avocado

  1. Oooh, I love taco soup. This is on my list. I will probably half it, though, since I am the only one in the house that eats leftovers.
