Don't miss out on the giveaway that I have at THIS POST!
I just put on a huge pot of taco soup for dinner tonight and there will be plenty to freeze for another meal or two. I love cooking large batches to have more than one meal with the same amount of work. I know there are several recipes out there for taco soup, but mine is very simple and uses mainly "real foods" meaning no canned soups or mixes. I brown about 3 pounds of ground beef with two chopped onions. I added a gallon of the pinto beans that I cooked up late last week, two cans of whole corn and two cans of Ro-Tel. I then added a gallon of tomato sauce. I will add seasonings after this has simmered for a while...about 2 each of salt, garlic, cumin, chili powder and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. Simple, wholesome and nothing artificial!!
