Whenever making soup, I always use 93% lean ground beef.

How to Make Taco Soup
- Brown the ground beef and drain off grease. I use lean varieties or ground turkey.
- Once ground beef is browned combine all ingredients in stock pot and cook for at least 30 minutes. Do not drain any of the juice off of vegetables or beans. If you desire to "stretch" the recipe somewhat - add a cup of two of water.
- May also simmer this concoction in crock pot on low all day. Needs less water if you use the crock pot method.
- Serve with tortilla chips and shredded cheese of your choice.
