Taco Soup Magic

There is something about cooking a big pot of soup on my stove top that makes me feel like a witch and Betty Crocker all at the same time. It's magic.

This is what was for dinner last night and for some reason (maybe it was the frog legs or eye of newt) it was particularly delicious.

Taco Soup

1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound hamburger
1 pkt taco seasoning

1 quart stewed tomatoes
1 can V8
1 can beef broth
1 can corn, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste

shredded cheddar
sour cream

Saute chopped onion in a little bit of oil heated in big cauldron pot. Add hamburger and taco seasoning. Cook and stir until hamburger is browned. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to simmer. Stir every now and then, allowing enough cooking time for all ingredients to heat through and for tomatoes to "break down". Cackling is optional.

Serve in a bowl over crushed chips. Add shredded cheese and sour cream for extra calories yumminess.

What's for dinner at your cottage?

I love soup! It's one of my favorite parts of fall. Tonight we're going to try to squeeze in one more hot dog cook out before the weather turns on us.

YUM! Thanks for the recipe. We love Taco Soup! Our big difference is that we add a package of ranch dressing mix. It kind of takes out the zip of the taco seasoning which makes it better for the kids!

It looks yummy, and something I might not ruin trying. Did the kids like it too?

We love taco soup at our house. We make it often and it is a family favorite. We make is a little different than yours though. I have also discovered that it taste great over baked potatoes (kind of like chili) with sour cream and cheese and it is even more filling!!
