Taco Soup, with Homemade Taco Mix

There are many versions of this quick soup; this is the one I rely on, and it's perfect when I  need dinner in 30 minutes. It calls for a taco seasoning mix. Recently I started mixing my own, and I chose the recipe from the internet primarily because I had all the ingredients on hand. But the whole family enjoys it, both in this soup and on ground beef tacos, so it's a keeper.


Taco Soup

Serves 4-6

1/2 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes
1 15-oz can kidney beans, undrained
1 17-oz can corn, undrained
2 T taco seasoning mix

Brown meat and onion. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer 15 minutes. Serve with warmed flour tortillas and top each bowl with grated cheddar cheese to taste.


Taco Mix


2 teas chili powder
1 1/2 teas paprika
1 teas onion powder
1/2 teas sea salt
1/2 teas garlic powder
1/2 teas ground cumin
1/2 teas oregano
1/4 teas freshly ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together. For tacos, use 1-2 T on 1 lb ground beef.
