SouthWest Surprise aka Taco Soup

1 Pound Ground beef/turkey/chicken
1 1/2 Cups Frozen Corn
1 Can Chili Beans
1 Can Pinto beans with jalapenos
1 Can diced fire-roasted chilies
1 Can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 Can tomato sauce (12-16oz)
1 Envelope Taco Seasoning
1 Envelope Ranch Seasoning


Brown Ground meat in pan, drain fat. Return to heat and add 2 cups water and taco seasoning, simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile in large pot dump in remaining ingredients, stir to combine. Add in taco meat and stir. Simmer slightly for 10 minutes and serve. Garnish with cheese, sour cream, jalapeno, olives, etc.

It's a hearty meal/soup but loaded with sodium since it's mostly canned items. To reduce the sodium content purchase lower/low sodium canned goods.
