Super Easy Taco Soup & 11/3 What's Cooking Wednesday Linky

Today, I want to share with you my super easy way to make Taco Soup. I'm serious, you basically just throw canned stuff into a pot of ground beef. Really simple, and really DELICIOUS! This is one of those meals where the leftovers actually get eaten!




First, brown some ground beef. You can drain the grease or not, depending on your preference. I left a little for flavor.


Now we add the canned stuff. Be sure not to drain anything. That's what makes it "soupy". Add a can of black beans,


a can of kidney beans,


a can of pinto beans,


a can of corn,


and a can of diced tomatoes. See how it's getting the juicy, soupyness now?


Now add a packet of taco seasoning.


And stir. It smells so delicious already!


Bring it to a boil for about 15 min or so. You may want to test taste and adjust the flavors as necessary, like if you like it spicier or something.


Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese. We were out of shredded cheese, but I did add some small pieces of Velveeta and it made it creamy and good too! Sorry, the sour cream looks funny because it started melting as soon as I dolloped it on.




Alright, on to What's Cooking Wednesday, where you share with us your best recipes!

Thanks to everyone who linked up last week! We had 9 DELICIOUS recipes! Ugh, it's so difficult to pick my top 3 favorites... why do you all have to be such AMAZING chefs? Ok, if I REALLY have to choose...

Tiffany, over at One Day at a Time, shares a YUMMY Gumbo recipe. I'm from the south so we basically live off of good stuff like this. And she uses one of my favorite seasonings, Tony's Cajun Seasoning. I can't wait to try this one!


Macey, at Olivia Renn, shows us how to make an Anchovy-Free Caesar Salad Dressing. Mmmm... Caesar salads are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE salads! Next time I make these salads, I'm using her recipe to make the dressing!


Debra, at Happy to Be Home, shares a yummy recipe for Roasted Chicken, where the leftovers can be used to make a Shepherd's Pie. I love the way she makes this, using vegetables to make a rack for the chicken to cook on!




Here's today's Linky!

Add as many recipes as you'd like! Look for featured ones next week too! Yours could be a favorite!
