The December 2011 issue of Southern Living is wonderful. I was looking through the soup recipes and ran across the taco soup. I didn't have all the ingredients like the Ranch Dressing, but the taco seasoning, green beans and beer made it extra yummy! I always add sugar to tomato recipes which I did a little with this. Fast and easy!

This recipe is very easy. I browned the meat on a Sunday & quickly cooked it a couple of nights later. Only suggestion is that the green beans were "too much"...next time I may do baby limas? My whole family commented they seemed out of place - even my son that loves green beans left some in his bowl. Served this with those Bisquick garlic-cheese biscuits and it was a great family week night meal. This is def a keeper for a busy family & I am glad it turned out well. Also makes a huge portion -- so you could share with a new mom or have guests and have plenty to serve.

Quite tasty, and rather easy, could easily provide 2 meals for a family of four. I added additional corn (as I couldn't find any 12oz bags at the grocery store), and I doubt it made much of a difference. I used Sam Adams Winter Lager, as that was all I had on hand. Served topped with cheese and tortilla twists. Next time I might season the meat a little for a bit more of the taco flavor.

ok base, I added a whole onion and 4 cloves of garlic with ground beef. then only used one can of pinto and added one can of black beans. Used Mexican diced tomatoes, Mecican stewed tomatoes, no green beans (clearly does not belong) and several good dashes of hot sauce. Finished with a large hand full of fresh cilantro......YUM !!!
