Taco Soup

This recipe is one of my favorites--I make it a couple of times a month, and I always make a big batch so I can freeze some for later! I have found many recipes online for taco soup, so I have taken bits and pieces from those recipes and put my own together. Here is how we like it:

1 lb ground beef, 1 can kidney beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 package taco seasoning,
2 16 oz can tomato sauce , 1 can diced tomatoes, 1-1 1/2 cups water (depending upon how thick you like it)

Optional Ingredients:
shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips

First, brown the ground beef (I like to add onions to my ground beef, but it is not necessary). Place the cooked beef in a large pot. Add all cans, water, and taco seasoning. Simmer until heated through, or until ready to serve. We like to eat it with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream on top. Also, Kevin likes to crush tortilla chips in the soup, and I like to use the chips as a scoop and eat it like dip. Jacob likes it sans chips. Any way, it is a great soup on a cold winter day!
