Review & Recipe: Taco Soup w/Lawry's Taco Seasoning

 We are now officially in Autumn, which means the air is getting chilly, so it's time to start making hearty comfort foods.

Lawry's has a huge line of seasonings and flavor packets to meet all your cooking needs. One of my personal favorites is Lawry's Taco seasoning. It has everything you need for authentic taco flavor, in one little packet! But taco seasoning is not just for tacos...check this out:

Taco Soup

2 cans of whole Black Beans (undrained)
2 cans of Pinto Beans (undrained)
2 cans of Diced Tomatoes w/Green Chilies
1 can of Whole Kernel Corn (drained)
1 pack of Lawry's Taco Seasoning
1 pack of dry Ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 small onion (diced)
1 fresh jalapeno (diced)
1 lb ground beef or turkey (optional)
2 diced green onions
1 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
fresh cilantro leaves
sour cream (optional)

In a large stock pot, combine black beans, pinto beans, corn, taco seasoning, and dry ranch dressing. Bring to a low boil. Add onions, jalapenos, and a few cilantro leaves.  If you decide to use ground beef or turkey, cook in a separate skillet, and drain all the fat off the meat before adding it to the soup pot.  Allow the soup to simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.  To serve, garnish with green onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and cilantro.
