This is probably one of the most popular soups out there. I tried looking on line to see just how many blogs have it, and I seriously lost count. It's everywhere! And no wonder! It's so stinkin' easy to make and tastes just like you'd think a bowl of taco soup would taste like. I love it!
My sister in-law shared this recipe with me a few years back, and it has been a monthly menu item ever since! My kids really like it with corn bread. I just ladle a few scoops of the soup right on top of the bread. Delicious!
1 1/2 Lbs ground sirloin
1 large onion, chopped
2 Tbs taco seasoning
1 32 oz box beef stock
1 15 oz can corn (with liquid)
1 15 oz can Mexican seasoned diced tomatoes (with liquid)
1 15 oz can pinto beans (with liquid)
1 15 oz can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 15 oz can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
salt to taste
In a large stock pot, cook the beef til no longer pink. You can drain the fat if you prefer. I leave it in, it makes for a richer soup. Add onion, cook just until it starts to soften. Add in taco seasoning, mixing it well into the ground meat. Add rest of ingredients, stir well. Bring to a boil over med/high heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer another 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste to see how much salt you'd like. You may also want a little more taco seasoning.
Garnish with your favorite taco toppings. My family really likes this with sour cream, cheese, tortilla strips, and maybe some fresh cilantro or diced green onion. SO GOOD!
