If you find yourself short on time — or any culinary skills whatsoever (like yours truly) — then this recipe is for you, my friend. It’s my ol’ standby it because it takes less than 30 minutes, only 1 pot is needed, it makes a ton of leftovers, it’s great for cold & rainy nights, AND there are just 11 ingredients required (11 is the magic number; for this reason and the others, Taco Soup goes to 11). It’s not vegan or vegetarian but if that’s what you prefer
it can be altered GO CHECK OUT ANOTHER COOKING WEBSITE. Here ya go little fella:
+1 lb. Ground Beef
+1 Yellow Onion, chopped
+(2) 14.5 oz. cans Diced Tomates with Green Chiles
+(2) 15 oz. cans Pinto Beans (drained)
+(1) 15 oz. can Black Beans (drained)
+(1) 15 oz. can Cream-Style Corn
+(1) packet Ranch Style Dressing Mix
+(1) packet Taco Seasoning
Chop the onion and toss it in the pot with the beef, let the two brown together.
*Tip: To avoid eye-watering action while chopping onion, hold a matchstick in-between your teeth. I know this because I just watched The Help, starring Emma Stone and Viola Davis.
Drain the excess grease & add remaining ingredients to the pot. Simmer on medium-low & stir occasionally for 20 minutes.
(If it seems a little thick, add a splash of water while simmering.)
And, um, that’s it!
Serve it up with some or all of the following fixins:
+Crushed tortilla chips
+Shredded Cheddar Cheese
+Tortilla chips for the dippin’
