Taco Soup Addiction

All women have that one meal that we prepare for someone when they have a baby or have surgery or a death in the family or whatever the case may be. My meal is taco soup with all the fixins. It's fast, i'ts easy, it's economical, kids like it, it's DEEELISH! This was actually a Weight Watcher's recipe back in the day. I do a good job of fattening it up with all my cheese and sour cream on top! I made 2 pots of it last week to take to 2 ladies in our MOPS group that had just had babies and I had about 3/4 of a pot remaining. Ah shucks! Had to eat it myself! I ate it twice last week and again last night for dinner. And I've been fantasizing about it all morning. I can hardly wait for lunch time!!! So I thought I'd share this wonderful recipe so that you too can become obsessed with taco soup.

1 lb ground beef (I suppose you could also use chicken, never tried it)
1 can tomato sauce
1 can corn
1 can red kidney beans
1 can white beans
1/2 cup rice
1 package of ranch dressing mix
1 package of taco seasoning mix
water (I can't give you an amount, I just put enough water so that it's a little soupy, but not too soupy)

Brown your meat, then throw everything in the pot and simmer for 30-45 minutes. Serve with grated cheese and sour cream on top. I like to dip tortilla chips in mine. And when they're in season, I like a few slivers of avocado on top.
