RECIPE FROM "THE
MAMA'S TACO SOUP
2 pounds ground chuck
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
2 cans stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 can Ranch Style beans, undrained
1 package dry Ranch Style dressing mix
1 package taco seasoning
1 tablespoon diced bottled garlic
1/2 cup water (more if needed for thinner consistency)
1-1/2 cups tomato juice
Cheddar Cheese (for garnish)
Brown ground chuck and onion; drain off grease.
Add all other ingredients without draining any juices from cans and mix together.
Simmer over medium to low heat for 1 hour.
Note: I brown my beef, drain it in a colander and put it in a large crockpot. Then I add all the other ingredients and cook it on medium for 2-4 hours.
Serve with shredded Ceddar Cheese and crushed tortilla chips on top.
