Better late than never~it's been a wild week. But here's a simple recipe, great for a Saturday evening supper and if there's any left over~it's even better warmed up.
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (I use dried)
1 eight ounce can tomato sauce
1 sixteen ounce can diced tomatoes
1 & 1/2 cup water (I use the water after rinsing out the tomato sauce & tomatoes)
1 sixteen ounce can kidney beans
1 envelope Taco seasoning
Brown hamburger and onion, drain fat. To a large sauce pan add water, green peppers, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, undrained beans, taco seasoning and hamburger mixture. Simmer for at least an hour. After spooning into soup bowls sprinkle with grated cheese and add crumbled tortilla chips. Enjoy.
Note: if you want a less spicy flavor just use half a package of taco seasoning.
