I am back!!!!!

I can't tell you how good it is to finally feel good again! Thanks for all your prayers! I am savoring every bite of food because I was really starting to wonder if I'd ever be able to eat something other than crackers!

I made a delicious soup for supper. Mark's work always does a soup cook off every year and this was the winner:
Taco Soup

2 pds hamburger
1 green pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
2 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch mix
2 T. chili powder
1 can tomato sauce
1 can corn, not drained
2 cans kidney beans, not drained
2 cans diced tomatoes, not drained- you can use whatever variety you like

1. In skillet, cook ground beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat till browned.
2. Place beef mixture in slow cooker add taco seasong, ranch mix, chili powder, tomato sauce, corn, beans and tomatoes. Mix
3. Cover and cook on low for at least 2 hours
4. Serve with optional garnishments- tortilla chips, chopped green onion, sour cream, grated cheese.

Like Andrew, I was wondering if you had given up blogging. Really, I thought you had gone somewhere. I am glad that you are feeling better and up to cooking. The taco soup sounds really good. I haven't made it yet but plan to.

i make a taco soup similar, but it requires a big ol slab of corn bread on the side to complete the recipe! ☺ glad to hear you're feeling better.
