Although around here we are preparing for Christmas and the sale of our new house...in order to move and buy another new one...in another city. I am enjoying fixing heart warming foods...so, I decided to share some of my faves over the next few weeks! This is a favorite I made this week, and we love it. My kids are big bean fans and pick them out...which is not hard to do with this hearty soup. It is a quick meal made of things I have in my pantry at all times!
In a soup pot add:
2 lb hamburger or ground turkey (cooked and drained)
2 c. frozen corn or 2 cans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can light red kidney beans
(i use what I have--i also substitute in black beans too!)
make sure you drain and rinse beans
add 1 can diced tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 envelope ranch dressing (dry)
2-3 cans of water depending on how soupy you want it I usually use three...bring to a boil...reduce heat to simmer (30-40 min)...or put in crock pot on low all day.
I serve with cheese, sour cream, and taco chips on the side...enjoy!
