Anyway, today's dinner consisted of taco soup (yes, I never heard of it either!), peanut butter chocolate chip muffins (yes, those two things don't really seem to go together, but we enjoyed them!) and a special red, white and blue fruit medley for the Fourth of July! Here's what you need...
Taco soup -- I modified it a bit, as they called for a slow cooker soup, and as usual, I didn't have time to do it in the morning. So I just made it on the stove (this is just half the recipe, and we still got enough soup for two nights!)...
*1/2-pound hamburger, cooked
*1/2 white onion
*1 can tomatoes
*8-oz can of tomato sauce
*1 can chili beans (I used 1/2 can kidney beans and 1/2 can chili beans)
*1/2 can corn
*1/2 package taco seasoning mix
*1/2 can Rotel tomatoes with green chili (I only used a couple tablespoons because they are so spicy)
*1 cup water
Cook the hamburger and mix all the ingredients in a pan. Heat for an hour or so to make the flavors come out.
And, speaking of the Fourth of July, have a happy one from all of us here at Ms. Blake's Kitchen! Until next time.....
