from the kitchen of Ginny Owens “On tour some years ago, we were given the gift of Bruce and Barbara, a husband and wife who drove our bus. Barbara brought her electric cooker and made meals for us after each show. (Yes, it was the best tour ever!) Taco Soup quickly became my favorite of her recipes. When she told me how easy it was to prepare, I decided to make it myself. It’s great if you need food for lots of folks and have little time for preparation. (Story of my life.) It’s also great for hungry singers! Enjoy, Ginny”

  • CourseSoups
Ingredients
  • pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 14 oz. cans diced tomatoes undrained
  • 3 15 oz. cans whole kernel corn undrained
  • 2 15 oz. cans pinto beans drained
  • 1 16 oz. jar salsa mild is recommended
  • 2 packages taco seasoning Taco Bell or McCormick recommended
Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef with onion and salt, pepper, and a little Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Drain meat and place in large soup pot or 6 qt. dutch oven.
  3. Add all cans. (Barbara didn’t drain the cans, but I always drain most juice off the beans.)
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Stir over medium to medium low heat.
  6. Cover and let simmer on low. Continue stirring every ten minutes until served.
  7. The longer it simmers, the yummier it is. And it’s even better the next day.
Terri's Notes

~ Mildly spiced to please even the youngest guest at the table.
~ Want to kick it up a notch? I added 1 tsp. Cumin and a 4 oz. can of chopped green chilies–served with shredded cheddar, sour cream and tortilla chips…to rave reviews.
~ Some will prefer 2 cans of corn and 3 cans of beans, you know who you are!
~ Perfect last minute ‘any time’ meal, all but the burger can be kept together on the shelf and on the ready. In fact, whenever ground meat is on sale, I cook it up and pop it into a gallon sized zip-lock bag, in a single layer. Even frozen, it can easily be broken apart and added straight into the soup pot.
~ Put all this into a crockpot on low in the morning and supper can be waiting!
