Tasty Taco Soup, a guest post by Michelle
My sweet Sister-in-love, Michelle, agreed to share a recipe with us! I’m so excited. Michelle is a busy lady, raising and home schooling two boys with her husband & writing a wonderful and uplifting blog SomeGirl’s Website. My Sister by marriage is a wonderful lady to know and I’m happy to share her with you!
Tasty Taco Soup
What a joy to be able to fill in for Jamie today. I feel a little unqualified to be sharing, but I’m going to remind myself that this is A “Dash” of Domestic, right? And I’ve at least got a dash in me (somewhere in there). 😉
I do, however, have an awkward confession to make here in the virtual home of such a wonderful chef…
I don’t like to cook (at all).
I LOVE having people over and I really enjoy providing a good meal for our guests, but the actual cooking (and cleaning) doesn’t float my boat (sometimes sinks it). 😉
Thankfully, I found a recipe that is quick and easy to make and always receives compliments. It’s become my go-to guest meal, game night dish, weekend easy fix…
It’s so good that anytime I take it places, people ask for the recipe (gotta love that!). It’s even the recipe Jamie requested I share here with you guys; knowing first hand what a wonderful cook she is, that says a lot (and makes me feel quite honored… thank you, Jamie).
So, if you’re at all like me and enjoy having a quick, easy, tasty dish (and something that will get lots of compliments and be ready to eat when you get home from a day out), I’d HIGHLY recommend the following recipe:
Tasty Taco Soup
2 lbs ground beef
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing (dry mix)
3 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans corn
1 1\2 cup water
Brown meat and onions. Add seasoning. Stir in remainder of ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream and fritos.
To make in a crockpot: Brown meat and onions then combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours.
(personally modified from a Taco Soup recipe found in an old community cookbook from a local church)
Hope you enjoy it! And, hey, now you have a GREAT reason to invite some friends over! 🙂
