This recipe is one of my favorites & pretty much my go-to recipe for company since everyone always loves it & it's easy! I got this from my mom, but I think it's an old Longaberger recipe. Anyhoo, I certainly didn't come up with it ;) Oh, and did I mention it was easy?!?!
1lb gound beef
2 cans black beans (rinsed & drained)
2 cans pinto beans (rinsed & drained)
2 cans diced tomatoes (I personally use the petite diced with onions, but that is just preference.)
2 cans creamed corn
2 cups water
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch dressing seasoning mix
Brown beef (I usually use lean beef & leave the little bit of fat that cooks off in the pan for flavor, but you can drain it off.) Add all other ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat & let simmer for about 20 mins.
Please note: This makes a lot of soup!!! I always half the recipe (unless I am feeding a ton of people) and it is plenty for at least 5 hearty servings. If you half the recipe, don't forget to just use 1 cup of water but don't worry about halving the seasonings (I always use the same amount & its not too strong.)
Also, I personally love this dish topped with sour cream & served with tortilla chips (great for dipping!) I never even use a spoon ;) Hope you enjoy!
