This is a great recipe to throw in the crock pot also. We like to use it for pot luck at work.

I made this recipe for a family the other day, thought the kids would really like it. Just did it on the stove and couldn't believe how easy it was - and how yummy! I only added one can of beans, and it seemed like enough for them. I made it last night for my husband and I - and he just absolutely loved it! It is sort of like chili - but not. It really is a taco in a bowl. We put the corn chips on the bottom and then topped the soup with cheese and sour cream. It is very filling and satisfying - and so easy and delicious - all the right ingredients. Next time I will try it in the crockpot!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped

  1. Cook beef and onions together, drain and rinse.
  2. In a large sauce pan, add beef mixture with other ingredients.
  3. Bring to boil.
  4. Reduce heat.
  5. Simmer for 15 minutes.
