This is an awesome recipe that my mom gave me when I was in college! It is the first thing that I ever cooked for my husband, and remains a favorite today.
1 lb. ground beef
2 large onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cans stewed tomatoes (I use diced tomatoes because I don't like to chop them in the pot.)
2 cans pureed tomatoes
2 cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed (or 1 kidney bean, 1 black bean)
2 cans corn
2 pkt taco seasoning
1 C salsa
1/2 - 1 C rice (optional)
2 tsp beef boullion
salt & pepper, to taste
optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions, and tortilla chips
Brown the beef, and drain. Put all other ingredients into the soup pot, and heat through (about 20 minutes).
We don't add the rice to ours anymore. And, I cut the recipe in half for my little family. Enjoy!
