Quick Meals for Working Moms - Taco Soup

Taco Soup recipe from the Fall 2011 Penzey's catalog.
You can view the complete catalog here.

This Taco Soup recipe is another quick and delicious reader submitted recipe from the Penzey's catalog.  Brown 1lb of local, grass-fed ground beef.  Drain the beef, then season with 1 - 3 teaspoons of taco seasoning.  I was completely out of my favorite Penzey's Bold Taco Seasoning.  So I used the homemade taco seasoning recipe from Food Renegade.  Add a can of diced tomatoes, frozen organic corn, organic black beans (I cook big batches of dried, organic black beans ahead of time, then freeze in can-sized portions for easy use) and a 16 oz jar of salsa (love Trader Joe's chunky salsa!).  Add water and additional taco seasoning if needed then simmer for 20-30 minutes over medium-low heat.  We enjoyed this dish garnished with crushed tortilla chips, sour cream and shredded pepper jack cheese.
