I wanted to share this recipe because so many people have said they didn't know what it was. I didn't know about it until this last year, my mom's friend made some and my mother raved about it!! So this is how I make mine!

1 med Onion, chopped
1 – 17oz can diced tomatoes with juice(sometimes I add more sauce)
1 – 14oz cans kidney beans
1 -  Can of Black Beans
1 – Can of  Corn (or canned w/juice)
1 package Taco Seasoning(i sometimes add 2)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup chicken broth
1 pack of Ranch Dry Seasoning(I sometimes add 2)

•Optional Garnish: shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced green onion, Fritos.

Directions: In large stockpot, brown ground beef, onion. Drain grease, add tomatoes & all but garnish. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve in individual bowls and garnish as desired!

** This is just a neat twist on Chilli!!

  3. We love taco soup here. It is a mainstay in the winter. I like to change it up to and do a chicken based one. I just substitute with chicken and use bullion and water to make broth and the taco seasoning. Then just add everything else as normal.


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about our journey! Leave me something that will make me happy! Have a blessed day!
