Taco Soup

  This is a soup that's close to a chili, but not quite. My friend gave me this recipe. It's easy, good, cheap and stretches a long way. The toppings are of your choice and customizing is cool - that way everybody is happy.
  We did this as a fundraiser at the Moose one night and it went over great. The only thing I suggest, is don't substitute on the ranch dressing and taco seasonings, they make the flavor.

Taco Soup
1-2 lb. ground beef
1 can hominy, drained
1 can whole corn, drained
1 can stewed tomatoes, chopped (I used frozen chopped)
1 can Rotel tomatoes, variety of your choice
1 can chili beans, undrained
1-1/2 cups water
2 cups salsa, heat of your choice
1-2 T. cumin
2 T. parsley
1 package Taco seasoning mix
1 package Ranch seasoning mix
1/2 - 1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

In large saucepan brown meat and drain excess fat. Add all other ingredients and simmer 30 minutes. Top with your favorite taco toppings - cheese, diced onions, chopped tomatoes, or a dollop of sour cream.

Toppings - shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, chopped onion, shredded lettuce, sliced olives, or a dollop of sour cream or guacamole.

(Note - I prefer two cans of diced tomatoes instead of the stewed. Bite sized pieces are easier.)
