Meal Rotation System: Taco Soup

This is Day 7 of the Meal Rotation System: a pattern of meal planning where you go down a list of meal groups each month, picking one from the group for each day, and rotate through the list when you're finished. Read more about how the Meal Rotation System works.

Taco Soup is similar to chili, except it's soupier, it has taco seasoning so the flavor is different (and better, in my opinion), it uses corn, and you eat it with tortilla chips. 

I wish all my meals are as easy to make as taco soup! After cooking the ground beef and chopping up an onion, you just throw a bunch of stuff in a crock pot, stir, and turn it on. If you're short on time you can cook it in a big pot instead; you just have to keep checking on it as it simmers.

Taco Soup

1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 ounce package taco seasoning mix
15 ounce salsa
15 ounce frozen corn
1 15 ounce can of kidney beans, drained
1 15 ounce can of black beans, drained
10 cups scoop-shaped tortilla chips
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Sour cream

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook beef and onion until beef is browned; drain. Place beef mixture in slow cooker with remaining ingredients.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low 2 hours. Serve with cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
