My aunt Bella brought me this “taco soup” the week after Millie was born and it was perfect. She made us a huge batch so I froze half to enjoy in individual servings when I needed a quick lunch. I asked her if I could share the recipe and she kindly obliged. Here it is, copied and pasted from Bella.
BELLA’S TACO SOUP
YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 lb ground beef cooked with a package of taco seasoning mix
- 1 can of black beans-drained and rinsed
- 1 can of white beans I like northern beans
- 1 can of rotell tomatoes (I use mild)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 package of hidden valley ranch dressing mix
- 1 can of corn drained
Mix all together over the stove or in a crockpot
It usually makes enough for our family of five to eat with some left over.
Very freezer-friendly! Just freeze the leftovers in whatever size portions you want for later. Defrost over night in the fridge, or in a bowl of hot water if in a pinch. Reheat on stove (preferred) or in microwave.
As it gets eaten I add more beans and tomatoes to stretch it if needed.
To get fancy we top it with sour cream and grated cheese. If I have it on hand I will dice up an avocado on top and sprinkle tortilla strips as well.
