Taco Soup

This recipe was handed down to me from my dear friend Ellen W., MUCH to the eternal delight of my entire family! :-P This is one of our favorite soups. You can make this at home on your stove-tope, in your crock pot or in a cast iron Dutch oven (pot) over the fire while you are camping. Enjoy!

Blessings from Ohio, Kim<><


{full disclosure: this is not my soup but looks like it! YUM!}
1 lb. ground beef or chuck

1/2 med. onion - finely chopped

1 lg. bunch of fresh cilantro - finely chopped

4-6 jalapeno peppers (depending on your taste buds & stomach lining!) - finely chopped

2 15-16 oz. cans kidney beans (UNdrained)

2 14-15 oz. cans whole kernal corn (UNdrained)

1 15-16 oz. can black beans (optional)

2 15 oz. cans tomato sauce

1 pkg (1-1/2 TB) taco seasoning

1 c. water

~ Brown beef, drain; add onion, peppers, 1/2 of the cilantro and cook until onions and peppers start to get tender.

~ Mix everything together in a dutch oven (pot) OR crockpot OR cast iron dutch oven (pot).

  1. SO saving this recipe! It sounds wonderful and comforting. :)

  2. Hi Kim,
    I've made this soup for years and my
    family loves it, especially my son with
    autism. He will go and get out all the
    ingredients and place them on the counter
    for me, then smile ear to ear, and I know
    that means, please make this soup, Mom!
    I have never used the taco seasoning in
    mine though. I'll try that. Bet it gives
    an extra kick! Thanks very much.
