Ole! Soup, Anyone?

(HT to Gerry for this recipe – rumor has it that it is yummy and comes from his sister. WC )

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 package ranch-style dressing mix
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
2 14.5-ounce cans diced tomatoes with green chilies
2 15-ounce cans pinto beans
1 15-ounce can black beans
1 15-ounce can cream-style corn
Brown beef with onions in a medium-size soup pot.  Drain excess grease.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes before serving.
Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.
I’d add that you could serve it with fresh taco chips or TJ’s blue corn tortilla chips, a crisp green salad and a nice cold Dos Equis. Oh yeah!

  1. Man that does look good! LOL…am I hungry or just got the screaming cravings! 3 days without a smoke, 2 of which have been cold turkey.

    Damn, I’d like a cigarette right now.

    LOL – me too but for very different reasons. Hang in there kiddo. I know you can do it. Make some soup. 😉


  2. Mmmmmm……………..

    I could have used that recipe during the blizzard last week. I think I’ll keep it around for our next cold spell!


    Actually it’s sounding pretty good to me now. Unfortunately I don’t have the ingredients laying around or the will to go get them. Oh well, to the pantry I go… 😉


  3. Ask Gerry for his ‘Wetback Pie’ recipe.
    I always felt it needed a more PC name but damn, it’s good…

    I’m utterly terrified to ask the ingredients of that. 😉


  4. jeez m… you had to go and tell my secret and now these days more than ever the wetback really fits…
    hey 12 million people came to this country illegally to try to get them some of that wetback pie…LMHO

    Oh…I see – so this is your fault? Hmmm. LOL.


  5. It’s not a joke there is a true recipe dubbed wetback pie it was something I threw together some years back and tested it on my friend and his wife… I had no name for it so he called it wetback pie and it became gastronomical history…recipe avaialable upon request.. I also make some mean red chili pepper fettuccini served with chili..and jalapeno pasta served with a jalapeno infused alfredo sauce

    You lost me at jalapeno, Ger. Me no do hot peppers or chili’s. No way, no how. Nope. My taste buds won’t stand for it.
