Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a 6 quart heavy bottomed pot, fry onion and salt until soft, add garlic and fry 30 seconds.
  2. Add meat and sprinkle with salt chili powder and taco seasoning. Fry only til faintly pink.
  3. Add onion soup mix, water, tomatoes, sugar, italian seasoning thyme and barley.
  4. Add potatoes, celery, carrots.
  5. Simmer 40 minutes.
  6. Add tomato soup and cheese, stir to blend. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve with taco chips instead of crackers. My kids will crush them and add the chips to the soup.
  8. This could easily be made into a spicy version with hot pepper flakes or cayenne added to the frying meat mixture. Sometimes I also will add kernel corn at the end, either frozen or canned.
