Posted by Annette Jennings  |  POST A COMMENT

Taco Soup
from ( Ourbestbites.com )

1 lb. extra lean ground beef (93% or leaner)
1 onion, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 1.25 oz. packet taco seasoning (about 1/4 c.)
3 c. water, divided
2 - 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 -15 oz. can tomato sauce
2 - 15 oz. cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can corn, drained

Toppings: Pico de Gallo, light sour cream, shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips,tortilla strips, guacamole, etc.

Heat a large soup pot over medium. When ready, brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic. When almost brown, add taco seasoning and 1 c. water. Add the remaining ingredients, including the remaining 2 c. water, bring to a medium boil, then cover and reduce heat.
Simmer for at least 15 min.

Serve with desired toppings.

Makes 10 - 12 servings.

Slow Cooker Instructions: After browning the meat, place all the ingredients intoslow cookerand cook on low for about 6 - 8 hours.Freezer Instructions: Because of all the canned goods, you'll just take up a lot of space in your freezer if you freeze the whole recipe. However, after it's been cooked, the leftovers freeze extremely well.

*Note: I used my 5 quart slow cooker and it was full to the top. This recipe is BIG!! Can be halved. My kids even liked this. Also note, we only used half the taco seasoning.
