I think every family has their own version of a Taco Soup recipe, our family is no different. I have found one that I have used for the past 20 years and my family loves it. We eat it frequently and seldom is there any left over. It's the easiest soup to make, taking only about 15 minutes to put together, then you just heat and serve....its that easy! NO JOKE! Its one of my favorite "easy" recipes to make when I am in a hurry.
2 cans red beans (can use Kidney beans or any other that your family likes)...don't drain
2 cans corn, drained
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
1-46 oz can of Tomato juice
2 packages of taco seasoning
1 package of Frito style corn chips
Toppings ideas: shredded cheese, olives, avocado's, chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, sour cream...etc...
Put all ingredient (except chips and toppings) in a large soup pan. Heat until warm, then serve. Top with corn chips and your favorite taco toppings then...Eat up!
* For a more spicy soup, add 1 bottle of salsa and reduce the amount of tomato juice that you put in.
