Boomama's Soup-Tacular
It's A Soup-Tacular!

I started to pass on this, but it's just too easy to do. AND--I don't like to be left out of the fun! So--Here goes! I don't cook anything very complicated. So, if you're looking for something easy to prepare, this is your place!

Gp to Boomama's to find HUNDREDS more soup recipes! After all, it is Soup

Tortilla Soup
Now, I know every one and her sister does some version of this one, but it is our favorite. I have used so many versions of this soup, I have really forgotten where I got it. The great thing about this recipe is that you can easily adjust it to what you have in the pantry/refrigerator.

• 2 lbs. ground meat--browned and drained==Or--Cooked chicken cut in cubes or strips--Or, if you are in a hurry just pour in 2-3 cans of chili without beans!
• 1 small onion chopped
• 3 cans stewed tomatoes
• 1 can (16 ox.) pinto beans, undrained
• 1 can (16 oz.) kidney beans, undrained
• 1 can (16 oz.) sweet corn, drained
• 1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilis, undrained--optional OR use Rotel tomatoes and adjust the amount of stewed tomatoes you use.
• 1/2 cup water
• 1 package taco seasoning
• 1 package ranch style salad dressing mix
• salt and pepper to taste
• Shredded cheddar cheese--optional
• Tortilla strips

Brown meat and onion, drain. Add remaining ingredients, cover and reduce heat. Simmer one hour. Top individual servings with tortilla strips and cheese. I have also prepared this in a slow cooker.

Actually, this is a great basic soup that you can customize to your own needs/liking. You can change the meat just about anyway you like it. We use chicken more than beef. The vegetables can also be adjusted. You can use whatever beans you happen to have in the pantry. I often use green beans instead of pinto because we like it that way. Hominy can be substituted for the corn. I even put potatoes in sometimes--a couple of potatoes cubed or a can of diced new potatoes, drained. Just adjust the vegetables anyway that works for you.
Ranchero Supper Stew
Just a simple, delicious beef stew!

• 2 Tablespoons oil
• 1-11/2 pounds beef cubes
• 1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
• 1 (16 oz) can whole tomatoes, undrained
• 1 cup water
• 2 tablespoons chili powder
• 2 carrots, sliced thin
• 1/2 cup celery, sliced thin
• 2 potatoes, diced

Brown beef in oil. Add onion soup mix, tomatoes, water, and chili powder. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add carrots, celery, and potatoes. Cook covered for one hour.

This sounds good! I have never attempted tortilla soup before, but I think I need to try it!

Look how sweet you both look! I love seeing childhood pictures and this one's adorable!

I have never heard of Tortilla soup. I think I need to try that in the coming months of cold weather.

Great sounding soup. In the wintry months I'm certainly a soup kind of girl, thank you for this.
