Gluten Free Taco Soup

For this week's "What's for Dinner? Wednesday," I chose a quick and easy meal. The last couple weeks have been a bit hectic, so I needed something I could just throw together. I decided to make taco soup. I can't really pump this up to be an elegant meal. However, sometimes a hearty, tasty soup is just what you need after a long day.

Taco Soup:
2 cans of diced tomatoes (if you don't like tomatoes, like my wife, use 1 can)
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 can of water
1/2 an onion (diced)
1 pound ground beef
Taco seasoning (we use McCormick's)
Combine tomatoes, beans, and water in a medium stockpot over medium heat. In a skillet, saute onions for about 1 minute then brown ground beef. Add taco seasoning and finish cooking. Add onion/meat mixture to the stockpot. Top with cheese, cilantro, green onion, and sour cream.
Serve with Fritos corn chips or corn muffins.
Easy, Easy, Easy! We all need that now and then. Enjoy!!!


  1. This looks like a really yummy one! I love the easy part too. And it's great when it's a good hearty meal that is quick.

  2. This sounds great! It's sort of like tortilla soup, my favorite. I think this taco soup elegant in its simplicity. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. What a great idea. I'll be trying it soon. Thanks!

  4. I'm having that for lunch tomorrow!

  5. That looks terrific, Brian. I like black beans in anything. I made tortilla soup last night. It was unseasonably cool here and rainy, so that was calling my name. The heat's back today though.
