Ingredients : Soup
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans
- 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans
- 1 (11- to- 15-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes & green chilies, preferably Ro*Tel®
- 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 (4-ounce) can chopped chile peppers
- 1 (1-ounce) envelope taco seasoning
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope ranch dressing mix
How to Make It
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef; drain well and transfer to the slow cooker. Add the canned beans, corn, Rotel and regular tomatoes, and peppers. Stir in the taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
- Serve the soup with tortilla chips or Mexican cornbread.
To make homemade baked tortilla strips, slice 4 corn tortillas in half, then slice each half crosswise into strips. Heat 2 to 3 inches of oil in a heavy skillet to 350 F. Using a metal slotted spoon to stir them and keep them covered with the oil, fry a batch of about one-third of the tortilla strips until golden brown (about 3 minutes). Remove the fried tortilla strips to towels to drain and repeat with the remaining tortilla strips.
Make a double batch and freeze some in meal-size or individual portions for another day.
- Add a can of refried beans to the soup.
- If you don’t have a can of chile peppers, add an extra can of Ro-tel tomatoes with green chiles and one 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes; omit the 28-ounce can of tomatoes.
- Add a few tablespoons of chopped jalapeno peppers to the soup.
- For a thinner soup, add some beef broth near the end of the cooking time.
