Just another Sunday afternoon with Taco Soup


Today was your typical Sunday afternoon.

        

Nothing out of the ordinary going on around here.


Just your average, everyday kind of stuff.


I'm sure you all do the same things on Sunday afternoons!


It's okay to admit it. We won't judge you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today's recipe was given to me by my awesome friend Michelle B., who is a pretty amazing cook. We've eaten dinner at their house several times and I've never once eaten anything I didn't like!

 We brought her cookies this evening so I had an excuse to drool over her new baby, and I was secretly dreading it. She makes the world's greatest cookies so I hoping we'll still be friends after she tastes mine.

Anyway, this is ridiculously easy and SO good! My kids will even eat it and Alayna LOVES it! It takes less than half an hour from start to finish.

Taco Soup

Saute' in a little water for about 5 minutes over medium heat:
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1 (4oz) can mild green chiles

Add:
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans (drain and wash only these)
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can water
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
1 pound cooked ground beef (I usually cook it up while I'm making up the rest of the soup. And the soup tastes awesome without it if you're not a meat person)

Simmer for 15 minutes over medium-low heat.

Add 1/2 a packet ranch dressing mix.

Mix and enjoy!

Serve with sour cream and corn ships. Yummmmmmmmmmm!


And I just have to say, I love that I'm still getting feedback on several of the recipes! Even variations on them! So be sure to check out the comment sections of the recipes to find out people's opinions!

Okay if we had a tube like that....that is exactly what we would have been doing today. Instead my son move the basketball net next to the trampoline so he could slam dunk. And I took a 3 hour nap. Ahhhh..... We had bean soup today also. We are all paying for it now.....

I want a tube like that, if it keeps the kids that busy. We basically watched John Bytheway, ate nummy food, and read the newspaper. Most Sundays consist of the kids fighting over who gets to go first on the pc or wii, and why we have to go to church. Then we will read from the Friend, New Era, and watch movies. Kinda a recoup for the coming week.

The cookies are great! We are eating them for breakfast!! Ha ha. I love Savannah's note "These are for everyone to share" She probably knows that this mama eats most of them and gives her kids a cookie here and there, but today I am sharing!

We love taco soup at our house. You add a little cheese and green onions on top with the sour cream. Also, you can put a baked potatoe in the bottom of the bowl and spoon the soup on top. The potatoe makes it more filling and it is so good!! I love the tube. That looks like way too much fun!
