Taco Soup photos!

Mom's bowlMy bowl.
I also made some Sweet & Sour drink mixer from scratch to make margaritas, but I rummaged through the liquor cabinet and didn't find any tequila, but I found the Whiskey so I made myself a whiskey sour! I feel warm and cozy. I'm gonna put my p.j.'s on and cozy up on the couch. :) It's about to get CHILLY here, 45 tonight, 35 tomorrow night...

Today's recipe: Taco Soup.

I am creating Taco Soup.

Texan's have something called a "Mexican Food Tank", and when our tank gets low, we get cranky. My tank is low.

I am starting with about 1 pound of ground beef. Or 2 pounds, I dont know, just brown up some beef.

I am using the crock pot again for maximum flavor enhancement.

I will add about 2 ounces of taco seasoning to the browned meat and simmer for about 15 mins so the flavors really get in there. (I am using a shot glass for measuring)

Throw the meat in the crockpot, add a can of whole kernel corn (drained), a can of whole pinto or black beans why not both???(drained), a cup of grated cheese. Add a can of Rotel if you want to spice it up, around here, I don't dare add anything with color or Dad won't touch it.

I figure I will just simmer that on low till dinner time. A few hours at least. I will let you know how this experiment works out.

Also you should have some tortilla chips around to serve with it.
