Taco Soup Recipe

1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef( the original recipe calls for 1 lb. I prefer 1/2 lb.)
1 envelope taco seasoning (I use mild)
1 (15 ounce) can corn with juice
1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans with juice
1 can sliced olives (or buy the whole olives and slice them)
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (11.5 ounce) can tomato juice
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
Optional - 1 onion diced

Brown ground beef (with onion if desired).  Drain.  Add to other ingredients and simmer.  I have found that if I let it simmer for the afternoon, it is very well mixed.  You may need to add a little water to taste if you prefer a thinner soup.  This recipe has lots of flexibility in it to make it just the way you prefer.  Serve with grated cheese and tortilla chips.  My kids also love cornbread with Taco Soup!

Ok, now I want taco soup or tacos! Had a really lovely dinner today with family for Easter, but tomorrow something simple like this would be nice.
