1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 12 oz. can whole kernel corn
1 14 oz. can tomato sauce
14 oz. water (rinse out your tomato sauce can)
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz. can kidney or black beans, rinsed
Brown ground beef, add 1/2 of the taco seasoning to meat. In a crock pot put meat mixture and canned goods and the rest of the taco seasoning. Simmer 2 to 3 hours on low. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh cilantro, grated cheddar cheese and sour cream (any or all of these are great additions!).
I make this on Saturday afternoon and put it in my crock pot in the fridge. Not the heating element, just the crock. :o) Sunday morning I remove it from the fridge and turn the heat to low. The soup simmers all through Sunday School and morning worship and is ready for my family when we return home.
