One Pot Taco Soup

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 15 oz. can pinto beans
  • 1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans
  • 1 15 oz. can black beans
  • 1 15 oz. can kidney beans
  • 1 15 oz. can red beans
  • 1 large can of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 med-large minced onion
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1-2 tablespoons cumin
  • Salt & pepper

Brown ground beef in a large stock pot. Add minced onion and garlic. Then add all the beans (juice and all), along with the tomatoes. Stir in the cumin, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on stove until warmed through. Serve with corn chips, a glob of sour cream, and some chopped fresh cilantro. I really like the cumin flavor, but add as much or as little of that as you like.

I sometimes do this in the crock pot as well. This is my "You've got to be kidding? Your parents, your 9 siblings and their families are coming for dinner, and they'll be here any minute???!!!" recipe. I buy all the bean varieties I can find on sale - usually during case lot sales. Everything is always on hand to put together a fool-proof dinner.
