Recipe: Taco Soup

1 pound of 93/7 ground beef or lean ground turkey
1 packet of Taco seasoning
1 Tablespoon of tomato paste
1 medium sized onion diced
2 15oz cans of WHOLE tomatoes (Crush the tomatoes with your hands as you add them to the soup)
1 can of corn with the juice (or use 2 cups fresh or frozen corn)
1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can of diced green chiles (Can also use fire roasted chiles or jalapenos if you want extra heat)
Shredded cheddar cheese for topping
Tortilla Chips

In a 5qt stock pot, brown the ground beef or ground turkey. Drain if needed. Turn heat on pan down to medium.
Add diced onion and sweat the onions down for about 3-4 minutes until they start to become translucent.
Add the tomato paste and the taco seasoning packet to the onions and ground beef and let the spices bloom for about 30 seconds. You just want to toast the spices.
Add in all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the tortilla chips and cheddar cheese for topping.
Remember to crush the tomatoes as you add those.
Bring the mixture up to a simmer and simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour.
Serve with Tortilla Chips and Cheese.
