Tasty Tuesday

That right folks....it's back!! After one too many weeks neglecting my kitchen and eating out WAY too much the scale showed me a frightening number I hadn't seen in years! Yikes! So it's time for the EyeCanSee's to kick their eating habits in the butt and I've got a great new recipe to get things rolling. It was sooooo easy and will defintely be making more appearances in our weekly menu lineup. The hubs gave it two thumbs up! Enjoy!!

Taco Soup aka Mexican Chili
1 pound ground beef (I used the leanest I could find)
2 cans beans (I used black)
2 cans Rotel (I used original and it was pretty spicy....try mild or hot depending on how hot you want it)
1 can corn
1 pkt taco seasoning
1 pkt dry ranch seasoning

Brown ground beef. Drain excess fat. Add taco seasoing and cook 2-3 min untill well blended. Add all canned ingredients. Do NOT drain any of the liquid...this is what makes the "soup." Add ranch seasoning. At this point I added some water to make a bit more broth. The thickeness is more of a chili then a soup making it a very hearty meal. Continue to simmer 10 min stirring occasionally.

Top with cheese, tortilla chips or sour cream if you want. Bon Appetite!!!

Oh my gosh! I have been hearing about Taco Soup like a dozen times in the past week, and I JUST went to the grocery store to go get the ingredients and make it tonight! Although my recipe has a few extra ingredients. I hope it is as good as everyone has been saying! P.S. I am new to your blog =)
