Intro: Taco Soup
A thick Mexican soup, best with tortilla chips and a beer. Image heavy instructions.
Step 1: Ingredients
I generally use a little extra of everything. There's plenty of wiggle room. You can easily change the hamburger for ground turkey or chicken. Sticking to the recipe, though - You will need: - Â½ lb hamburger - Â½ medium onion - 1 tbsp taco seasoning mix - Â½ cup salsa - 1 15 oz can stewed tomatoes - Â½ 15 oz can kidney beans - Â½ 15 oz can sweet corn - Â½ 8 oz can tomato sauce - Â½ cup water - Â½ cup grated cheddar cheese - Â¼ cup sour cream - 1 bag tortilla chips (scoops work best)
Step 2: Chop Onion
A rough chop is fine. However you prefer. Try not to cry.
Step 3: Brown Meat
Brown the meat and saute the onions together. Mix it up.
Step 4: Add Seasoning
Add the taco seasoning and stir well, coating the meat. Remove from heat.

Open all the cans. Careful not to cut yourself. Do NOT drain anything.
