Taco Soup

1 can black beans- drained

1 can Kidney beans

1 can navy beans

1 can corn

1 can green chilies

1 32oz can diced tomatoes

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 pkg ranch dressing

1 lb ground beef- brown and drain

Only drain the black beans. Just dump everything in, heat and enjoy! It tastes best if you let it simmer for 40-ish minutes and let the beans break down a bit. If you want to make it even healthier and easier, use veggie/soy "ground meat" instead of the ground beef. Then you can just dump it in . . . no need to brown it first. Your kiddos definitely wouldn't notice the difference, but DH might a little (just the texture).

Sometimes I cook some whole grain macaroni noodles and serve it over that . . . it seems to go down easier for my kids.

It's absolutely best topped with freshly grated colby-jack cheese. Other good toppings are sour cream and chopped avocado.
