We've been having an unusually cool summer this year. Today I had my sweatshirt on all day! Even though I don't normally make soup in the summer, today just called for it. My family's favorite soup by far is Taco Soup. Similar to chili, it is one of those stick to your ribs sort of soup.
1 lb of hamburger (optional)
1 med onion, chopped - fry with meat or saute in oil if omitting meat.
2 quarts tomatoes
1 pint corn
1 can kidney beans
1 pkg taco seasoning
Pour everything in a crock-pot and simmer on low for 4 hours. Serve with grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, and corn chips or crusty bread.
NOTE: If you are in a hurry, this soup can be simmered on the stove for 15 minutes and then served. As with most soups, longer simmering enhances the flavors. This soup is even better reheated the next day.
