What's For Dinner? Taco Soup!

MSH has several favorite recipes-- his mom's meatloaf, my roast, anything Cajun, Vince Gill's White Chocolate Pound Cake, just to name a few. But, one thing MSH almost always requests is my mum's Taco Soup. I love it when he requests this because it is so easy. All the ingredients can be put in a crock pot to simmer all day long, and I love my little red crock pot! Oh, and it always makes our house smell so wonderful.

I wanted to share with you all my mum's Famous Taco Soup...

2 lbs. ground beef
2 cans Rotel tomatoes (I use mild)
2 cans Mexican corn
2 cans light red kidney beans (I leave these out)
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 pkgs. Taco Mix (dry) (I use mild)
2 pkgs. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (dry)

Brown ground beef and drain. Add all other ingredients (do not drain canned items) and mix together. Simmer for at least 1 hour. May cook in a crock pot.

Note: Canned pinto beans are also good in this soup.

Also, I love, love, LOVE sour cream in this soup. Mat loves it with a good piece of cornbread, hot out of the skillet, and he also loves it with tortilla chips.
