(I'm thinking about Squints in the movie "Sandlot"(Love that movie!) when he's saying For-ev-ver, For-ev-ver.....*still saying this as I type...)
I was going to make it on Sunday, but I figured I would wait a couple of days when they were forecasting rain and cool weather
I make it with some hot Italian sausage in it, and yes I realize I have had alot of sausage recipes lately, I'm trying to use it all up so it doesn't ruin peeeople! It adds a certain different flavor to make it that much better! So here goes the taco soup that I get major props on... :)
3 hot Italian sausage links, casings removed, cooked, crumbled and drained
1 lb ground turkey (or you could use ground beef), cooked and drained
1 15 oun can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oun can ranch style beans(do not drain)
1 15 oun can corn, drained
2 10 oun cans Rotel, do not drain
1 onion, chopped
2 1/2 cups chicken broth (less if you want it thicker, or more if you want it soupier)
1 tbs "tony" creole seasoning
2 bay leaves
2 pinches of cinnamon
1 tbs oregeno
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet dry spicy ranch dressing seasoning
Whatever cheese you like, I use Monterey Jack
Sweet cornbread...A must...
Break out your big pot, and throw in there your Italian sausage, ground turkey(or beef), and onion. Cook until brown. Drain. Add in your beans, corn, rotel, chicken broth. Stir. Then add in all your seasonings. Let simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Make ya a big bowl of this stuff right here with some cornbread and count your blessings that Taco Soup even exsists...
