Paula Deen's version of Taco Soup. As with most of the other things I have watched her make on the Food Network, this is easy to make and delicious! I ran to the market to buy all the cans of goodies to make this immediately.

  1. Brown the ground beef and onions in a large skillet; drain off excess fat and transfer browned beef and onions to a large slow cooker or stockpot.
  2. Add the beans, corn, tomatoes (I like to mash all of the tomato products before I put them in the stockpot--sometimes there are very large chunks of tomatoes, especially in the stewed tomatoes), green chilies, black olives, green olives, taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix.
  3. Simmer over low heat for about 1 hour (or 6-8 hours on low setting in crock pot).
  4. To serve, place a few corn chips in each bowl and ladle soup over them.
  5. Top with sour cream, cheese, green onions and jalapeños.

This is very good. I did have to add an extra 1/2 packet of taco seasoning to make it more "taco flavored" and make a few adjustments for things I can't get easily in England. So instead of tomatoes with chilies and canned chilies, I ended up adding about 2/5 of a jar of sliced jalapenos (I chopped these finely). I made a substitute for the ranch dressing mix and it's not as good as the real deal, but it worked and I think the olives add a nice touch.

This is my favorite main dish stand-by. It is inexpensive (what's cheaper than canned food?!), delicious, and easily feeds a group. I get rave reviews each time I serve this. Thanks for sharing on Food.com, Sharlene!
