Taco Soup!

I absolutely love this dinner! Not only is it super yummy, and hopefully pretty healthy, but it also makes a lot of food! Well, for a family of 2 1/2 people it does! :)

Some of the ingredients needed.

Taco Soup

1lb. ground beef (I used ground deer)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cup water
16 oz. tomatoes
16 oz. kidney beans (I throw in whatever I have)
8 oz. tomato sauce
2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
1 avocade
Sliced olives (optional)
grated cheese (optional also!)
corn chips (or rice is also really good with this soup)
sour cream

Cook beef and onion until browned. Add water, undrained tomatoes, undrained beans, tomato sauce, seasoning and olives. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Top with avocado, cheese, sour cream and chips!

Here's what it looks like while simmering.

And the finished product! Enjoy!



  1. Yummy! I want to try this...I love soup. ;) I'm glad to see you have your appetite back. How was morning sickness for you?


  2. 2 and a half people? Do they make half people? Interesting...:)


  3. I don't know if I ever lost my appetite! I discovered early on that if I ate first thing in the morning, I wouldn't get sick. So luckily, no morning sickness for me!

  4. yuuummmm! Sounds and looks so good!

  5. I made this for dinner last night! And even though I played pretty fast and loose with the recipe, it was really yummy.

    Also, I used two websites for the meal: your post for dinner and Pioneer Woman for dessert, so you should consider yourself pretty awesome :-)
