Taco Soup

This is a staple in our house. The boys love it. Logan asks for it alot.

Taco Soup
From: 30 Day Gourmet Website

1 lb ground beef (optional)
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (or cayene)
2 cans Mexican Chili Beans
2 cans undrained canned corn
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can black beans (optional)

On hand:
Sour Cream
Corn Chips

Brown beef and drain. Put everyting in a big pot (I typically use my crockpot), stir well. Cook until heated through. Put corn chips in bottom of bowl, spoon soup over, and top with sour cream and shredded cheese, or whatever you have on hand that you want in it.

We usually have 1/2 of it left over, so I put it in a container and put it in the freezer. It thaws well, then just heat it up on the stove. We used to put the hamburger in it. I tried it this week with out the hamburger, and it was just as good. If you are looking for a meatless meal, this is a good one.
