Taco Soup

I love making this soup because I always seem to have the ingredients on hand in my food storage. It is great to make when unexpected people show up because it is fast, easy, and you can make it for large groups really easy. If more people show up, just add a couple more cans of something.

1 lb. ground beef
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can whole kernel corn
2 cans crushed tomatoes
1 can water
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning mix and prepare according to package instructions. Open all the beans and rinse and drain. Add beans, corn and crushed tomatoes to the ground beef mixture. Fill one of the empty cans with water and add that to the soup. Heat through. Serve topped with shredded cheese, Fritos or corn chips and sour cream if desired.

If you don't have all of those kinds of beans, you can do 3 cans of one of them or mix and match in any way you like. I've even had it with Garbanzo beans too.
