1 In A Home Cook/ Soup

Quick Taco Soup

 

I was Cah-Raving Tacos last night!
 
But alas…
I didn’t have any taco shells or tortillas. 
 
That never happens!
We are a bulk buying family.
 
Chicken Torilla Soup?
Nope! No thawed chicken.
 
Hamburger?
Check
 
Taco Seaoning?
Check
 
My pantry always has a costco box of diced tomotoes, black beans, and every kind of stock or broth you can think of.
 
Idea?
Taco Soup … just improvise a little.
 
Here is my tutorial on a super quick Taco Soup.
 
I started by browning about a pound of hamburger with a diced yellow onion.
 
 
Then drained a can of corn and a can of black beans.
 
 
Once the hamburger is fully cooked; drain the fat then add in the corn and beans.
Followed by two cans of diced tomatos and can of Diced Green Chilis.
 
(I didn’t have any diced green chilis on hand so I substituted a can of Rotel for one of the cans of diced tomotoes and a can of Chilis.)
 
Let that cook down for a few minutes.
Then throw in a packet of Ranch Seasoning
and a 1/4 cup of Taco Seasoning.
 
 
And
a box of Vegetable Stock.
(You can also use Beef Stock)
 
 
Let it cook for 30 minutes or so.
Mine looked like this.
 
Enjoy with a dollop of Sour Cream and/or some Shredded Cheddar.
You can also crumble and top with Tortilla Chips.
 
 
So Good.
 
Next time you need a quick 30 minute meal,
this is definitely one you can turn to.
Enjoy!
