Food F(Ph)oto Friday ~ Taco Soup

Taco Soup

1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can black beans
1 14.5 oz can kidney beans
1 8 oz can green chiles
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1 packet taco seasoning mix
water (to preference)
1 lb. turkey sausage, ground turkey, rf pork sausage, or lean ground beef (I sometimes will use 2 pounds of meat – depending on my mood)

I really wish I could give you step-by-step instructions, but I’m a dumper.  I rarely measure…although I tend to be better at it when I’m trying to “be good”.  Essentially, you brown off the meat and then add the rest of the ingredients (I rinse the beans) – I’ll add 2-3 cans of water and then let it simmer for awhile so that the flavors can marry (usually an hour, but it really doesn’t take that long). I suppose you could serve this with the sides that you would use for chili, but I don’t.  It tastes great right out of the pot.
