My go to Taco Soup recipe!

I love this time of year with the chill in the air and the beautiful leaves changing colors. The scarves and sweaters, the hot lattes and gatherings with family and friends! But lets face it it's a busy season and feels like we are always running around like crazy! Weeknight dinner can be hard to manage and so I am constantly looking for ways to get something warm and yummy on the table fast! This is my go to taco soup recipe. We all have one - this one has been with me since the early days of my marriage. Great for casual parties and serving big crowds if need be. Just be warned if you choose to double or even triple it do not be tempted to add extra seasoning packets it will get HOT fast!!

Taco Soup:
1lb ground turkey or beef
1 onion
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing (powder mix)
1 can rotel
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans (or whatever beans you like)
Brown the meat and onions and dump all the cans including the juice and seasoning packets into a stock pot and heat on medium/high for 30-40 min. or put it into your crockpot and forget about it until dinner!

I am always looking for good go to, simple recipes to add to my collection. What's your favorite quick weeknight dinner?
