Taco Soup!

I can be lazy sometimes, there is no way around it. I like things that are quick and easy and nothing is easier then bringing out the crock pot and allowing the crock pot to do all the work for you! Just mix a few simple items together and forget about it for the rest of the day till it is time to eat a nice hot and healthly meal!

My family gets sick and tired of the same old thing every night and we are always looking to try something new and exciting. I stubbled across a recipe for taco soup in one of my grandmothers old cookbooks and I changed a few things to fit our family's unique tastes and adapted it to be cooked in the crock pot.. and tata... this recpie was created!

1 lb of ground hambuger
1/2 cup onion
5 large tomatoes (or two cans of stewed tomatoes)
1 can of kidney beans with jucie
1 can of black beans with jucie
1 can of corn with jucie
8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 package of dry taco seasoning
1-2 cups water
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Optional Toppings:
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
a spoon full of sour cream!
Crushed tortilla chips or fritos

To Make:
Brown hambuger and onions in your skillet. Drain off ...
Combine all the ingredients in your crock pot.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Checking after 3 hours (you may need to add a little more water, depending on how thick it is getting)
Ladle into bowls and top with your chocie of toppings!
