Recipe - Taco Soup

Taco Soup
adapted from this tutorial by Grasping for Objectivity 

This is a classic "dump" recipe - dump a bit of this and a bit of that into a pot...

Ingredients:
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 yellow onion (I used 2 very small ones)
1 green bell pepper
1 can (8 oz.) salsa verde
1 can (14-18 oz.) vegetable soup, no meat
1 can (14-16 oz.) tomato soup (I used 1 can {6 oz.} tomato paste plus 1-1/2 cups water)
2 cans (10 oz. each) Ro*Tel tomatoes with green chiles
1 can (14-16 oz.) corn, drained
1 can (14-16 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 envelope (1 oz.) taco seasoning
1 envelope (1 oz.) powdered ranch dressing mix
1 cup water

Garnishes:
Shredded cheese (I used Cheddar)
Sour cream
Tortilla chips or Fritos

Brown the ground beef in a skillet and drain off the fat.

Chop the onion and bell pepper.

Dump all of the ingredients into a large pot or slow cooker. Simmer on low or medium-low at least 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft (I cooked on low for about 4 hours)

"Garnish with Cheese and Sour Cream, just like every meal should be treated." Crumble chips on top or use them for scooping.
