Ranch Taco Soup

Be sure to follow me on Facebook and never miss a delicious recipe.
 Well . . .  it's 2015 . . . how does it feel?  

Let's ring in the new year with a bowl of warm, comforting, Taco Soup?

We served this yummy soup along with this Easy Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup at a work luncheon a few months ago.  This recipe comes from one of my cute co-workers, Ruth Ann. 

It's different than other taco soup recipes I have tried, not only because of the ranch mix, but also because of the creamed style corn and stewed tomatoes.

It comes together in no-time and after simmering for 20 minutes, you can enjoy this delicious taco soup.  Or . . .  if you simmer it a lot longer and let the liquid evaporate it turns into a thick and creamy and super flavorful chili.  I have tried it both ways and both are great. 

Happy New Year :)
Ranch Taco Soup

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)

1/2 Lb. lean ground beef
1 (1.25 oz.) packet taco seasoning or about 1/4 cup
1 (15.5 oz.) can chili beans, undrained
1 (15.25 oz.) can kidney beans, undrained
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, undrained
1 (14.75 oz.) can cream style corn
1 (14.5 oz.) can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 c. salsa
1/2 - 1 (1.125 oz.) packet dry ranch dressing mix, to taste

For Serving:
sour cream
chopped green onions
shredded cheese

Brown ground beef in a large pot over medium heat until cooked through.  Add the taco seasoning along with the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Use a wooden spoon to break the tomatoes into smaller pieces.  Simmer for 20 minutes and serve with desired toppings.  

You can also simmer this for longer and allow the liquid to evaporate and have a delicious thick chili instead of soup.
