Taco Chili Soup

This is one of my go-to meals and a favorite in our home. I love to have this simmering away on my stove when it is cold outside ~ and I love to hear "Mmmmm, something smells so good!" when the kids come bursting in the door after school! This is a wonderful soup to prepare because it is so versatile and there are so many topping options! It is great for big crowds - just double or triple the recipe - it is excellent for a fast week night meal - and it is the best dish to bring to pot-lucks! I hope you enjoy this delicious soup as much as we do!

Taco Chili Soup

2 lbs. chopped meat
1 onion (chopped fine)
1-2 cloves garlic (minced)
4 cans Italian-style stewed tomatoes (I blend mine in the food processor)
1 can chili beans (with sauce)
1 can black beans (drain)
1 can white corn (drain)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
2 pkg. ranch dressing (dry)

Saute chopped meat with onions and garlic ~ season with Italian spices, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 hour.

Top soup with chopped cilantro, cheese, sour cream or oven-browned tortilla strips. It is also excellent served with tortilla scoops for dipping!

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
