Fiesta Soup

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 jar salsa or Picante sauce + 1 jar water
  • 1 large can tomato sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes & green chilies
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 packet (2 tbsp) ranch dressing mix
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning (½ packet)

Open all cans & jars and pour entire contents into crock pot or large soup pot. Chop onion and add to pot; brown ground beef and add to pot. Add seasonings and stir. Cook for 4-6 hours in crock pot or at least 30 minutes on stove top. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

This is my version of the tried-and-true “taco soup,” for which many recipes exist; but I am always asked for my recipe, so here it is. It is easy, colorful, delicious, and [mostly] nutritious!
