1 lb ground beef - cooked and excess fat drained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can beans (black, kidney or pinto) drained and rinsed
1 onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
1/2- 1 packet taco seasoning (depending on spice preference)
1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
1/2-1 cup water
1. Mix all ingredients together in large stock pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 45 min- 1 hour until vegetables are tender.
2. Garnish with sour cream, cheese and fritos.
The soup was a little thick, so if you want a soupier soup add more water or tomato sauce! I came up with this recipe by combining 3 other Taco soup recipes.
