Taco Soup!

I love Taco Soup! I usually just throw whatever I have into a big pot and most of the time it turns out really, really good! I made a big pot today while we watched the Hogs. Here is what I did:

Taco Soup

1 lb ground beef
1 onion
1 can whole kernal corn
1 can kidney beans
1 can of chopped green chiles
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomato sauce
1 packet of taco seasoning
1-2 cups of water based off your preference of how soupy you like yours
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder for seasoning

I browned my meat and added the onion. I then added all of the other ingredients and let simmer for 1 hour. I serve mine with cheddar cheese and sour cream.

It is so good and so easy to make!

Feeling Chili??

I love Chili! It is so fitting when the air is getting crisp and you want to just cuddle on the couch with a big ol' bowl of it. One of my favorite chilis to make is my White Chicken Chili.

Here's the recipe!

White Chicken Chili Ingredients:
3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion
1 green bell pepper
1 can of green chilis or 1 serrano pepper (depending on how spicy you like it)
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp cumin
1 packet McCormick's White Chicken Chili Seasoning packet (optional)
1 24oz Chicken Broth
2 cans White beans
1 lb cooked chicken breast

Start out by heating your olive oil -- Add your onion, bell pepper, and chiles or serrano pepper. Cook for 4 minutes. Then add your flour, cumin, and seasoning packet. Cook for 2 minutes, it will turn very thick. Next, add your beans and chicken broth. Stir really well and bring to a boil. Then add your cooked chicken breast. Simmer and serve.

My favorite toppers are shredded Monterrey Jack cheese and sour cream!

***I usually bake my chicken in the oven with some olive oil, salt, and pepper til done. Then shred.***

It is big pot of yumminess!

This is super easy recipe, be sure to try it out and tell me if you like it!
