A Tease of Fall...

The weather in Birmingham was absolutely fab-u-lous this past weekend! It almost felt like fall...almost. I really don't like the last few weeks of summer - they just drag on holding off the best time of year. In celebration and anticpation of my favorite season, I decided to make my favorite fall recipe. Check it out can even make your own tortilla chips to go with it (super yummy yet not so waistline friendly - maybe after I get back into my exercise routine. Wait, what routine?).

Taco Soup


1 lb. of ground beef or ground turkey
½ a chopped onion
1 can of mild rotel
1 can of corn
1 or 2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 packet of dry ranch mix
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney beans

Brown the hamburger meat and onion in a large pot. Drain. Return to pot. Add ranch and taco packets to meet. Stir together. Pour in remaining ingredients. Do not drain the cans. Add 1 or 2 cans of water depending on how soupy you want to make it. Cover and let simmer for 30 – 45 minutes. You can keep it on low for as long as you want, but it needs to cook for at least 30-45 minutes! Enjoy!

So my picture looks to be more cheese than soup, but you get the is just plain yummy and in my opinion you can never have enough cheese. What's your favorite fall recipe?

That is definitely one of my favorites- I love to make a huge batch and freeze it. I could eat it probably 2-3 times a week. It's pretty healthy too (besides the sodium factor). Yum!

This soup looks so good. I am going to have to give it a try. In my book cheese makes everything better!
