Souper Saturday!

I love soup. The good thing about soup is that it is (or can be) a very frugal meal. Fall is my favorite time of year - and one of the biggest reasons for this is that it is soup eatin' season again!
In honor of fall - and winter for that matter - I will be having Souper Saturday each Saturday through March and will be sharing some favorite soup recipes. I probably don't have enough recipes to last through March - so please feel free to share and I will be happy to post it on my blog and give you credit!

So, here is the first installment. One of my FAVORITE soups is Taco Soup - and it is so easy.

Taco Soup
1/2 pound ground beef; browned and drained (you could also use ground turkey)
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans; drained and rinsed (about 14 oz)
1 can diced tomatoes (about 14 oz)
1 package taco seasoning (depending on how strong you want the flavor, sometimes I just use 1/2 packet)
1 can of corn; drained (this is optional, but a great addition, especially if you are trying to stretch it to feed a lot of people)

Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan on medium heat. If soup seems too thick, add up to 1 cup of water. Cook until heated through. If desired serve with grated cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and/or sour cream. Serves about 6.

How about you? Do you have any great soup recipes you want to share? Please leave a comment or e-mail me at savingsomegreen (at) gmail (dot) com!

Two of my family's favorites:

I always do variations, like not use the can chicken stock, but use powder or chicken bones instead.
