Is today not THE perfect soup day?! My sister-in-law gave me the recipe for this delish dish many years ago. It is the best go-to pantry dinner EVER! Everything you need is a typical pantry item, so get out your can opener and cook some supper! Ingredients: 1 pound ground meat (optional, this is a great vegetarian dish) 1 can broth (chicken, beef, veggie) 1 can rotel (or whatever brand tomatoes with chiles you have) 1 can tomato sauce 1 can refried beans 1 can corn (drained) 1 can French-style green beans (drained) 1 package taco seasoning 1 package dry ranch mix Directions: Brown and drain your ground meat. Add the two packets of seasonings to the meat and stir until dissolved. Open all of your cans (drain the ones that need it) and dump them in the pot with the seasoned meat. Cook on medium-high until it comes to a boil, then turn it down to low and let it simmer until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, and diced avocado.
*If making in a crockpot, do everything the same, except cook on low all day.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
