Taco Soup--Ummy!


This was a recipe I tried last week... it's DELICIOUS! I'm sure it would be a lot more appropriate to eat on a cold, winter day rather than a hot, muggy, Texas day, but it's so good that I don't even care. The original recipe comes from a lady named Jane Clayson, but I modified it to fit my tastes. It's SO easy and SO delicious...

Taco Soup

Ingredients:
-1 lb hamburger*
-1 medium onion, chopped
-2 stalks celery
-4 cups stewed tomatoes**
-1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, undrained
-1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
-1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
-1 pkg. taco seasoning
-Cheddar cheese, grated
-Tortilla or corn chips, crushed
-Sour cream
(*any ground meat will work. My hubby is a hunter, so we have a ready supply of ground venison which is what I used.)
(**if  you do any canning, I just used a large Mason jar (quart size) of canned tomatoes that I had done last year. Worked perfect.)

Directions:
-Brown the hamburger (or whatever ground meat you are using) and onions in a large pot. 
-Add the celery, tomatoes, kidney beans, corn, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning. 
-Simmer 30 to 40 minutes. 
-Serve immediately with the chips and cheese sprinkled on top and a dollop of sour cream. 
Enjoy!!
