Taco Soup


  • One package Taco ‘Soup’reme mix from The Gourmet Cupboard
  • 1 lb ground meat
  • 2 (15oz) cans of corn
  • 1 (8 oz) tomato sauce (I used one can of tomato paste)
  • I (10 oz) can of Rotel (I omited, non on hand)
  • Water

*I varied a little from the recipe because of preference. I also added dried onions because I did not have Rotel

Empty beans in a colander and rinse well. Place in large pot and top with water (2-3 inches. Turn on medium and allow the beans to being cooking. For roughly 50 minutes. Directions include microwave method.

Cook ground meat and add to beans. Add remaining ingredients including spice packet. Top with water and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Until beans are tender and you have the desired thickness. Add water to make soupier, continue cooking to make thicker.

Garnish as you please!

Introducing Myself!

My name is Wendy and I live in Texas. The city that is credited with the birthplace of the Texas Flag, Montgomery Texas! I am a single mom that is always looking for ways to add variety and to get my picky kid to try new things. While I have not transitioned to totally clean eating, I am trying to! Meals also get stagnant and boring, lets add some variety! I will be trying out new brands and products along the way, some I may earn a commission on as well. I am very excited to be trying the products from The Gourmet Cupboard which is a woman owned and operated company right here in Texas. They prepare and grow the products we will be trying! I will adding polls shortly and would love to get feedback.
