Taco Soup

First, I'd like to say there are 100's of Taco Soup Recipes out there. Anything from throwing 7 cans in a pot and letting it cook all day to making your own seasonings and using fresh ingredients. With life at such a fast pace these days, crockpots and instapots can be a great help in the kitchen. What makes this recipe so great? It's the lean ground beef (I only use REYER FARMS ground beef) and heirloom tomatoes which I can every summer on our farm.

FABULOUS TACO SOUP

  • 1 lb REYER FARMS ground beef
  • 1 small onion
  • 3/4 pkg of TACO seasoning
  • 1 pinch of red cayenne pepper
  • 1 can of kernel corn (drained)
  • 1 can of black beans (drained)
  • 1 can of kidney beans (drained)
  • 2 qts of home-canned tomatoes ( I use heirloom) Do NOT drain!
  • water (add if you want to thin the soup)

    Directions

    Brown onions with ground beef. Beef from our farm is very lean and will not need to be drained! This way you enjoy all the nutrients naturally in the meat. Add taco seasoning and cayenne pepper. Next, add corn, beans and finally tomatoes. Add desired amount of water to thin soup. Cook on stove or in crock pot for 3+ hours. It will be better the longer it cooks so that all the flavors absorb into all the vegetables and beef. Double this recipe for a large family who enjoys leftovers!!
