Taco Soup

I make taco soup way too often...But it's just so easy!

Taco Soup
2 lbs ground beef (1 lb ground beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 15 oz can kidney beans, with liquid
1 15 oz can pinto beans, with liquid
2 15 oz cans stewed tomatoes with liquid
1 15 oz can tomato sauce (15 oz V8 juice)
1 pkg. taco seasoning

The original recipe is in black, the green are my substitutions/ additions to the recipe. I like my taco soup with more beans, and less meat. The V8 juice is just out of convenience - we don't keep canned tomato sauce on hand. To make this soup, just brown the ground beef and chopped onions with salt and pepper. Then add all your canned ingredients, including their liquid, and the taco seasoning. Simmer for 30 minutes - or in a crockpot for several hours. Serve it up with sour cream, grated cheese, and some chips. This also a super easy way to feed a big crowd.
