taco soup

This recipe is in no way my original idea, but since I couldn't find a recipe for it anywhere and decided to wing it... the recipe itself is mine. It turned out really well (sometimes my winging-it doesn't) and is super delicious! And seriously, this recipe is super-duper versatile. Throw in whatever beans sound good to you. Add more or less beef if you're feeling it or have it on hand. Increase the salsa content for a bit more kick. Do your thing. It should work out. Or do it my way. It's good too; I promise. :) Try it on a cold, wonderful day... and enjoy!

RECIPE: Taco Soup

1-1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 onion
1 taco seasoning packet
1 c. salsa
2 cans diced tomatoes {we used one reg, one with cilantro and lime}
1 can corn
1 can kidney beans
1 can red beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans

Brown ground beef with onion in a med-large pot (whatever you'll do the soup in; who needs more dirty dishes, honestly?). Add all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve with shredded cheddar, sour cream, tortilla chips, etc.

PS. My pictures suck. This I know. Lately they have been especially pathetic. Just trust me and not your eyes... it's tasty. Really.
