Dec. 30, 2009 Whip It Up Wednesday

Whip It Up Wednesday: Taco Soup

Whew! Made it just in the nick of time to get the Whip It Up Wednesday post done for today. It took me almost two hours to get home from my Mom's house which is only 22 miles away. Anyways, here's the last Whip It Up Wednesday for 2009!  
 
Taco Soup! It is one of our favorites and it came out of the same cookbook the Christmas Stew came out of. You can find that cookbook here on Amazon.
Taco Soup 
 
Makes 6-8 servings 
 
1 lb. ground beef 
1 large onion, chopped 
16-oz. can Mexican-style tomatoes (Rotel) 
16-oz. can ranch-style beans 
16-oz. can whole-kernel corn, undrained 
16-oz. can kidney beans, undrained 
16-oz. can black beans,undrained 
16 oz. jar picante sauce 
corn or tortilla chips 
sour cream 
shredded cheddar cheese 
 
1. Brown meat and onions in skillet. We used the taco seasoning mix and two cloves of garlic for some extra flavoring. And we don't drain the meet, as also adds some extra flavors.  
2. Combine with all other vegetables and picante sauce in slow cooker. *If you want to alleviate some extra gas, it is okay to drain all of the veggies. 
3. Cover. Cook on low 4-6 hours.  
4. Serve with corn or tortilla chips, sour cream, and shredded cheese as toppings.  
*Remember that we have a large 6.5 quart cooker so we typically double our recipes. Makes for yummy left overs.
Enjoy!
Be sure to come back next week, we will be posting one of our favorite New Year's Day snacks.
