not-yer-mama’s taco soup

  • 1 lb. ground hamburger, browned
  • 6 small/med. potatoes, peeled and diced to small bite size pieces
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 can olives, drained and sliced
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans no bean chili
  • shredded cheese, Fritos, sour cream
Put potatoes in large soup pot and cover with water. Boil on high until potatoes are fork tender; add browned hamburger. (make sure there is not too much water. i usually have enough water to just barely cover the potatoes or slightly less. too much water will make the soup to liquidy)             Add olives, corn, diced tomatoes, black beans, and chili. Stir to combine, and add the taco seasoning {a nice variation: add half of an envelope of ranch dressing mix at this point WITH the taco seasoning. delish!}
Bring the soup to a boil; Reduce heat to med/low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Serve topped with shredded cheese, Fritos and sour cream.

HAHA, did you come up with the title yourself?? I will have to try taco soup with potatoes! I like this recipe, and to serve it with fritos... YUM! I think the Ranch packet makes a difference with my recipe, too. Mmmmm.
