Monday's Meal

The following recipe is one of my favorites. It freezes beautifully and is a nice change from just plan old chili. We serve it with tortilla chips and a generous dollop of queso and it is delicioso. Enjoy!

Taco Soup

1 lb of ground turkey (or you could use beef, chicken or pork)
1 chopped onion
2 tsp of minced garlic
1 pkg of taco season
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can of corn
1 15 oz can of pinto beans
1 15 oz can of kidney beans
1 cup of water

Of course you can substitute an equal part of prepared dried beans, but for ease I just use canned.
Brown your meat along with the onion and garlic. Place you meat mixture in a dutch oven (or whatever you use to cook soup in) along with all the other ingredients and simmer over low medium heat for approx 40 minutes.
