If you're like me, you like to start something cooking before the family gets home and have the house smelling GREAT! Here's a wonderful thick soup recipe:
TACO SOUP (it can be made with chicken OR beef)
2 lbs. ground beef or I use chicken breasts (about 5 - 8) - and marinate them in Fabulosa Quick Fajita Marinade for about 30 minutes - then sauté with 1 chopped onion and 1 chopped bell pepper and 1 or 2 cloves garlic. Cut them into bite sized pieces and continue with soup recipe)
Brown ground beef or chicken with 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped bell pepper and 1 or 2 cloves garlic.
Drain meat and continue with recipe.
Add 1 pkg Ranch Salad Dressing
Add 1 pkg Taco Seasoning
¾ cup water
Use large pot and combine above ingredients. Then add the following:
2 cans chili beans
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans Golden hominy
1 large can Rotel Tomatoes
Simmer 30 minutes.
