Family Pleasing Taco Soup

When I had my first son, a friend brought us this dish for dinner and it has been a hit ever since. I made it last night and it made me so happy to see my son devour it. He can be such a picky eater so eating two huge bowls for dinner and again for lunch today was such a success! 

I vary how I make this from time to time, but almost always double it to have left overs. Since it has both beans and corn, which make up a complete protein, you don't necessarily need ground beef/turkey, but my husband loves meat so sometimes I'll make it with the meat. 

Taco Soup
1 lb ground beef/turkey
1 package taco seasoning
1 (16oz) can cut corn
1 (16oz) can kidney or black beans
1 (28oz) can stewed tomatoes
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce

Optional Mix Ins:
Tortilla chips/ Fritos
Grated Cheese
Sour Cream

Brown beef/turkey in a heavy saucepan, drain. Stir in taco seasoning, corn, beans, tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. If you like the beans to be a bit softer, throw it in the crockpot for a few hours on high. 



And just as a side note, I'm working on a post about what I've been up to. My dad came to visit and helped me with a building project so I'm really excited about sharing that with you. It is just taking a while to write, but I'm working on it!!
