Default Taco Soup


little bit of oil
1 small onion (chopped fine)
4-5 garlic cloves (chopped fine)
1-2 pounds ground meat
2 can pinto beans
1 can red beans
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can corn
1-2 can whole tomatoes
2 packages of taco seasoning (hot or mild depending on taste)
1 package of ranch dressing mix (the dry mix)

Preheat oil in a soup pot until hot and sauté onions and garlic. Add ground meat and lightly brown with ˝ package of taco seasoning. Once browned, add each of the canned goods (use your hands to break up or squish up the tomatoes). Add the remainder of the first package of taco seasoning and simmer for 15 minutes. Taste. Add the second taco seasoning package if you need too and simmer again. Here is the kicker (and it makes the recipe), about 5 minutes before the simmering is complete, add ˝ of the package of ranch dressing and finish simmering. Take off the burner and let sit for 10 – 15 minutes to cool and meld flavors, then serve. I like mine with cornbread!
