Prep time: 20 minutes
Ingredients: 1 lb lean ground beef (I used 93/7)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (1 oz) packet dry Taco Bell taco seasoning mix
1 (1 oz) packet dry Hidden Valley ranch dip mix
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste (optional)
1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (14.5 oz) can Hunt's stewed tomatoes or Mexican-style stewed tomatoes), undrained
1 (16 oz) can Bush's brand chili beans, undrained
1 (16 oz) can Bush's dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz) can Bush's black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (11 oz) can Green Giant Niblets corn, drained
Water, as needed (I used apx. 1 - 1 1/2 cups)
Beef flavored bouillon granules, to taste (I used 1 tsp per cup of water), or use Beef broth instead of the water and bouillon
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
Sour cream, seeded and diced tomato, shredded cheese, black olives, green onions for garnish (optional)
Directions: 1. Drain and rinse what needs to be, and chop the onion. Set aside.
2. Brown ground beef and onion in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink and onion is crisp tender. Drain off any fat. Stir the dry taco seasoning mix into the meat mixture until well incorporated. Stir in the dry ranch mix and salt if using, mixing well. Add crushed red peppers, if using. Pour meat mixture into the bottom of crock pot. Add both cans of tomatoes, all the beans, and the corn on top of the meat.
3. Boil 1 cup of water in the microwave. Dissolve 1 teaspoon bouillon granules in it. (If using beef broth, omit this step).
Add to crock pot, gently stirring to mix everything together. (You may need a little more water as it cooks).
Garnish soup with a big dollop sour cream, shredded cheese, black olives, seeded and diced tomato, green onion, sliced jalapenos if you like. Serve with crushed tortilla chips on top or with cornbread.
