Taco Soup...

I know there are a million different taco soup recipes, this is the way we make it...

All cans undrained:

2-cans pinto beans
1-can rotel
1-can diced tomato
1-small can tomato sauce
1-can mixed vegetables
1- can corn
1- can hominy

1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch dressing
1 pound browned hamburger/turkey

Mix all well and cook in the crock pot on low for 6 hours. You can also make this on the stove top.

We serve with cornbread and tortilla chips.

Taco Packets...

Another super EASY and delicious recipe. I think I originally saw this in a Kraft Food & Family magazine.

I will list the recipe for making one packet.

piece of foil
frozen chicken breast
favorite salsa
taco seasoning
new potato, yukon gold, or regular potato sliced
colby jack shredded cheese

Put your foil sheet on a baking pan. Lay the sliced potatoes in the middle. Top with the frozen chicken breast. Sprinkle taco seasoning on the chicken breast, in a light layer. Add 1/4-1/2 cup of salsa on top of the chicken. Top with desired shredded cheese. Close packet up. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

YUMMY! And better yet no cleanup!

French Loaf

Family favorite.

1 loaf of bakery french bread
1 lb browned hamburger
1 can tomato soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup

After you brown the hamburger, add the soups and simmer. Slice the loaf of bread lengthwise with the top thinner than the bottom. Now pick out pieces of bread from the bottom to creat a "boat". Put some of the bread pieces in the simmer meat mixture, as much as you want. Pour the mixture into the bread boat and top with the top. Wrap in tin foil and bake at 350 for 10-20 desired soft or crusty bread style.

This mixture also taste great on crackersor little toasts for parties.


Pot Roast


2-3lb beef roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 packet dry onion soup mix
3/4 cup water
