Taco Soup


I overheard a friend of mine saying, We're having taco soup tonight. Mmmm, I thought. Taco soup. Sounds interesting. Now, I have NO idea what is the deal with soup attraction recently, but I asked her what she put in her taco soup.
This is her taco soup:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 package taco seasoning
one can kidney beans (with juice)
one can corn (with juice)
one can Rotel (with juice)
one can V8

I thought it sounded interesting, and waited for a cool night to make the soup. It has been ridiculously warm here recently.

My taco soup:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 package taco seasoning
one can condensed tomato soup, and one canful of water
one can hominy
one can Rotel
*I would have added pinto beans, but I didn't have any*
chicken broth
rice (just stay with me)

Brown the beef with the taco seasoning
Pour hominy (with most of the juice), Rotel (not drained), tomato soup,
one canful of water in soup pot. Turn on medium low.
Drain beef and add to soup.
I served my kids a small bowl of this soup, as well as a side of white rice. My daughter added some of her rice to the soup, and I thought, Mmmm- that's actually a good idea!! So, I added rice to my bowl, and poured the soup over it. I really enjoyed this soup, even more than I thought I would. And you can see how easy it was!!

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!! Are you cooking or going out? My sweet hubby's taking me out, and my kids are having a sleepover at my sweet parents'. Whoo-hoo!
