Retro Dinner

I found this recipe while blog hopping today on Katie's Blog. I thought that my children just might eat it so I made it for dinner tonight. Yum!

Taco Soup
1 lb ground beef
(I think diced onion with the beef would be nice too, but I had none)
1 pkg or 1/4 cup taco seasoning (I used a couple tbsp of Epicure taco seasoning)
48 oz tomato juice (I used V8, cuz that is what I had)
12-14 oz can of kernel corn (I used mixed veggies, again what I had)
16-20 oz can kidney beans, rinsed (I used black beans)

Brown beef and add taco seasoning. Throw in the tomato juice, corn and beans. Bring to a simmer. Serve over crushed corn chips (I used tortilla chips and served on the side for my picky kids) and garnish, as desired, with cheddar cheese and sour cream.
This received rave reviews from the harshest food critics ever, my kids! Thanks for sharing Katie.


  1. Really?! They ate it? Even with the onion and corn?

    Mine actually ate some of the sauce for the pasta tonight! (small victories I know).

    Sorry to hear about Brent btw. I hope you guys have a good night. I wish I lived closer!

  2. I didn't add onions, had none:) My kids love all veggies so corn was a yes.
    Yours ate pasta sauce? what the?
    You made pasta? lol
    I wish you lived closer too.

  3. I know! I so didn't feel like making anything and I had one chicken breast and some shrimp. Voila...pasta lol.

    I even ate it! Weird! and 1/2 a white bun...crazy!

  4. It looks yummy. Even if my kids might not eat it, I would.. :)


  5. Sounds yummy! The boy would eat it, but not the Princess. That girl gets by on a lot of bread and yogurt.....

  6. I have a good recipe for taco soup that my kids love but this one is simpler and I have to have fewer ingredients on hand, so I can't wait to try it.
