Taco Soup

Taco Soup
based off of a recipe from Melissa Borders, check out her blog here

1 onion
2 lbs ground beef
3 packages of ranch dressing powder
2 package taco seasoning
2 can corn- drained
1 can pinto beans
2 can black beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomatoes with chilies

Brown hamburger. Then add onions, 2 ranch dressing powder and 1 taco seasoning. Cook until the onions are translucent.
 Put in crock pot. Add all beans, tomatoes, corn, taco seasoning packet and ranch dressing packet. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  Serve with sour cream, cheese and homemade tortilla chips (see below for recipe). Enjoy!

Homemade Tortilla Chips

corn tortillas
vegetable cooking spray
salt (if desired)

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Cut corn tortilla chips into to desired shape (we cut ours into strips) and place on cooking sheet. Spray the top of the tortillas with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven and cook for 10-20 minutes at 425. Be sure to check often, they burn easily. Serve over taco soup.

I hope you enjoy these recipe as much as we do.
