Taco Soup

Last night I was stressing myself out.  I had to have dinner on the table within the next hour or two and I am running low on groceries.  You know how it is.  I had no idea what to cook, and when I asked Jason what he wanted I got the usual male answer, "I don't care."  :o)  I started thinking of the things I did have and lo and behold I had everything except the Fritos to make taco soup!  Yay!  I love taco soup.  So fast to throw together and so warm and filling.  It snowed here yesterday and it was cold, so it was the perfect meal.  Jason picked the Fritos up on his way home, because you can't have taco soup without Fritos!
Here's the recipe~

Taco Soup
1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
1 pkg taco seasoning
1-16 oz can corn, I used my freezer corn
1-16 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1-28 oz can stewed tomatoes, I used a quart size jar of my own stewed tomatoes
1-8 oz can tomato sauce
1 pkg of ranch dressing mix

Brown your beef with the onion in a big soup pot.  Drain fat.  Stir in taco seasoning, corn, beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and dry ranch mix.  Simmer til nice and hot.  Serve with shredded cheese and Fritos.
