14.5 oz. DelMonte Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Mild Green Chiles (1 can)
14.5 oz. DelMonte Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Jalapeños (1 can)
11 oz. Green Giant Mexicorn (1 can)
14 oz. beef broth (1 can)
1 pkg. Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
½ tbsp garlic powder
½ tbsp chili powder
16 oz. sour cream
1 pkg. Kraft Mexican 4 Cheese Blend, shredded
Dice the onions. Rinse & drain all cans of beans.
Crumble & brown beef in a large pot over medium high heat.
Once the meat starts to brown, add salt, pepper, garlic powder & chili powder, stir.
Add onions & mexicorn, stir. When the meat is fully cooked, add beans & cans of diced tomatoes.
Reduce heat to low, add beef broth, taco seasoning & stir to mix.
Cover pot & let soup simmer on low for 30 minutes.
Serve in a bowl, top with spoon full of sour cream & shredded cheese.
Chef’s Note: For red-meat free soup, substitute ground turkey in place of beef & chicken broth in place of beef broth. For vegetarian soup, double the beans called for in place of the meat & use vegetable broth instead of beef or chicken broth.
In a stock pot, brown beef with pico de gallo. Add taco seasoning & the amount of water called for by the seasoning packet. Add soup. Stir until the beef has a thick creamy sauce, simmering for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
Layer the rest like a lasagna. In a 9″x13″ pan, place a single layer of tortillas. Spoon in half of the meat mixture & cover with half of the cheese. Add another layer of tortillas, the rest of the meat, & then the rest of the cheese.
Bake at 350°F until cheese is melted & bubbly. Cut into squares & serve with sour cream, guacamole, & fresh pico de gallo if desired.
Chef’s Note: If your grocery doesn’t carry fresh pico, you can make it yourself by combining finely diced tomatoes, white onions, cilantro, jalapeno, & lime juice. Or just dice up the tomatoes & onions & simply use that.
