Taco Soup

I got this recipe from Laura at Goose Hill Farms.  It is such a fabulous recipe.  I was sending it to my girl friend last night and thought I should share it here.  Something this good and this easy should not be kept to oneself.  I've altered the recipe a little with my own notes.

For the vegetarians out there, this is great without the meat, too.  I have used different types of beans depending on what I have in the pantry.

1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans navy beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can chicken broth
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1 pkg taco seasoning

Brown meat and onion, drain. Add remaining ingredients.  Cover and cook on low for approximately 3-4 hours. You can put this in the crock pot and cook all day. When we were in a hurry we put it on the stove and cooked it til it was heated through and it was good, too.

We serve it with cheese and sour cream on top.  At the table we pass tortilla chips for dipping.  We also pass hot sauce and jalapenos.

Laura, thanks for this great recipe!
