Taco Soup

This is a life saver when you need to whip something together in less than 20 min. My kids love this soup and it is actually pretty good for you too.

½ pound ground beef
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto or chilli beans
1 can stewed or diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 pkg taco seasoning

Brown the beef and drain the fat. (I add shredded carrots and finely chopped celery, onions and potatoes to make the beef more nutrious and stretch my buck). Then add the taco seasoning, the beans, the tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes or so until the flavors combine and it is heated through.
You can serve this soup over tortilla chips and put shredded cheddar cheese, tomatoes, olives and sour cream on top.
