This is another of my family's favorite soups - it also super quick and you can cook it in a Dutch oven or toss it in to a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day.
1 large can chili - or 2 regular size ones
1 can corn
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes (or a pint if you can your own)
1 Tbs dehydrated onions
1 package taco seasoning
Water as needed
1 lb ground beef, browned
Shredded cheese (optional)
Sour Cream (optional)
Combine all ingredients - except the chips, cheese & sour cream in a Dutch Oven or Crock Pot.
Bring to a boil then simmer till desired flavor is reached.
Serve with tortilla chips (add shredded cheese & sour cream if desired).
As I was preparing this today to take to a friend of mine - I thought of doubling it for their family and mine - I was looking at serving about 12 people with this - I decided to make 1 batch 1st and see how much it made then go from there - I promise you 1 batch is plenty - It filled my 6 quart oval Crock pot. If using a Dutch Oven this recipe would fill a 12" oven.
This recipe calls for canned beans - I usually have the dried ones on hand - 1 cup of dried beans soaked in 3 cups hot water overnight will substitute nicely, just drain and rinse with cool water, before adding to your soup.
Have fun cookin'
