Best Ever Taco Soup

Need Something Quick and Yummy for Dinner?
This is an easily made and easily adapted dinner. Dan hates all beans except black so I just substitute one can of black for the 3 of the chili. My kids think this dinner is the best because they can basically make it by themselves!! Added bonus: all three eat it!
Taco Soup:
1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
3 cans (15 oz) Mexican Style Chili Beans, undrained
1 can (15 oz) whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can ( 15 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles
1 envelope (1 1/4 oz) taco seasoning
1 envelope (1 oz) Ranch-style dressing mix
1 1/2 cups water
Toppings: corn chips, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, sour cream, shredded Cheddar
Cook beef and onions in Dutch oven until meat is browned. Drain.
Stir beans and next 7 ingredients into beef mixture; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon into bowls, top with toppings, ENJOY!!

I LOVE taco soup. So easy. I also love green chilis, but Adam doesn't. I wonder if I could sneak them in.

MMMMMMM! This sounds like a winner. My sons, age 22 & 20 love Mexican or Mexican style food and they are both striking out on their own, so I think I'll make it for them and then give them the recipe as a parting gift. Not that they won't be coming back, because there's always the laundry. Thanks Nutty Farm! I'll let you know how it goes.
