Taco Soup Recipe

Luke got this recipe from a nurse he worked with back in medical school, and we have loved it ever since! This recipe is great for a super quick dinner that can be doubled easily and shared with a new mommy, (and also freezes well). It really is delicious, even though it uses soooo many cans! Lately, with homeschooling, these kinds of recipes have really come in well as the frozen food such as potstickers and meatballs..I hate to admit!

Taco Soup
1 lb. hamburger meat
2 cans pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can chopped stewed tomatoes (or regular, or diced)
1 can rotel
1 can corn, drained (this is the only can I drain)
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix (or a mix of chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder if you don't have the packet)
1 pkg. Ranch dressing mix (a MUST)

Brown the ground beef. Add all of the other ingredients and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Options for serving: over rice; with tortilla chips; with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream...Enjoy!
