Taco Soup Recipe

My first recipe comes compliments of my wonderful sister-in-law Natalie. During her bridal shower, she had a great idea to pass out recipe cards for people to fill out, so she could compile a collection. The Taco Soup recipe was one of the recipes in that collection that she tried.

Taco Soup is now a weekly meal at their house. My BROTHER even knows how to make it! This recipe is so simple and it is delicious!

Brown & drain 1lb. ground beef (or ground turkey), set aside

Combine 1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can whole corn kernels, rinsed & drained
1 can Rotel
2 Rotel-sized cans of water
1 package of Ranch seasoning
1 package of Taco seasoning (I buy the one with lower sodium)

Add meat. Put on stove on medium heat until boils then simmer for 10-20 minutes.
You can add shredded cheese or sour cream to the top and I like to use the Lime Tortilla chips also.

This recipe is fabulous!

-Bon Apetite!

Why trust my recipes?

Ever since I was young, I can remember being in the kitchen. My parents hosted countless parties for huge groups, from family to friends. I love good food. So now that I am almost finished with college and need some direction, I have decided to work my way through culinary school. I will be taking night classes at Jean Pierre's Culinary School along with my regular Journalism classes at FIU.

SO why trust me? Simple. I will be personally testing these recipes and posting my own pictures of how it looks.

I also want lots of feeback. If you try one of my recipes and have a different opinion FEEL FREE to comment. Or even if you have a different take on it, write it down!

I will be posting recipes I find, recipes I will be learning about in school, recipes I come up with on my own, and old family recipes that I adore!

So please, keep reading! I promise not to dissapoint!
