Taco Soup - & a reminder

If you haven't already placed your order for the new JustRite stamps
and the Flower soft products, please do so soon. I will be ordering them

I am sharing one of our favorite soups. We like it even better than chilli !


1 pound ground beef, browned & drained (1 to 1)
½ C. chopped onion
2 cans tomatoes, canned (I use my home canned tomatoes, so 2-28 oz cans)
1 can tomato paste (8 oz.)
2 cans kidney beans with juice
1 package corn frozen
1 pkg. taco seasoning
2 cups water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt (maybe more...salt to taste)

Place all ingredients in a soup pot or large kettle, bring to boil, then simmer on low about 15-20 minutes. Serve with crushed taco chips and shredded cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream if desired. Also works great in a crock pot.

It is a beautiful day in Indiana. I think we are having our October weather in November.

What a blessing it is, because the farmers can now harvest their crops.

Hi Joan, for us non-canners out here, about what size would you say on the canned tomatos. I was thinking two 28 oz. cans in their juice. But it's maybe the 14 oz. size. I want to make this for a care ministry meal along with some cornbread.
Lookin' forward to your reply.
