It's a SOUP-ER day!!!!!

Show Us Your Life (SUYL) is back in full swing!!!

And today is all about SOUPS!!!!

Next week we will talk infertility so if you are struggling with or HAVE suffered through infertility - be ready to post and share!

I love soup.  Especially in the winter. We have had so much snow this year that I have been craving soups.  But I usually make basically the same soup recipe every time.  So I need new ideas.  I can't wait to bookmark this post and try out all your soups!

My favorite soup to make is Taco Soup.  It's sooooo easy and it's one thing my girls will eat!

2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 14.5 oz can whole kernel corn
2 16 oz cans of ranch style beans (I only used one can because I'm not a bean lover & it was fine)
* Maybe not everywhere but I know here - you find cans at the grocery store of ranch style beans. If you don't have those - substitute pinto or black or whatever you like. 
4 cans of diced tomatos (maybe substitute 1 can rotel if you like spicy) (I got the garlic/onion kind and I think it gave it great flavor)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg Ranch dip mix

Brown and drain meat. Saute onions for a few minutes.  Combine all ingredients in a large pot.  Add chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer 1-2 hours. I topped it with shredded cheese and sour cream (and fritos and avacado)!
