This soup is hearty and delish! We all enjoy this soup and I sometimes add fresh corn and green beans when I feel we need a few more veggies in our diet. It is so easy to put together and is slow simmered to perfection! Plus, I'm able to use my dutch oven ;).
2 lbs of ground beef
1 garlic clove, chpped
1 small onion, chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
1 package taco seasoning mix, I use low sodium
1 package hidden valley ranch salad dressing mix
2 cans crushed tomatoes
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes
1 can pinto beans w/jalapenos, w/ liquid
1 can kidney beans, w/ liquid
1 can white/yellow hominy w/ liquid
1/2-1 cup beef broth, it all depends how soupy you want it
Brown meat, drain off excess fat. Add onions, bell pepper and remaining ingredients into dutch oven, mix well. Simmer slowly for an hour, stirring occasionally.
Serve with rice, corn bread, crackers, tortillas or just fritos ( my fav.). You may also garnish with grated cheese, sour cream and avocado or what ever your little heart desires =).
