Slowe's Taco Soup




Here's a TNT recipe that Slowe makes from the Super Suppers cookbook. The grandgirls request it often. Sometimes she cooks it in the crockpot, after browning the stuff in paragraph one.

6 corn tortillas, cut into 1" pieces

1 pound ground beef

2 (14 1/2 oz) cans water

1 (15 oz) can small red beans, undrained

1 (7 oz) can diced green chile peppers, undrained

1 (7 oz) can sliced pitted black olives, drained

1 (1 1/4 oz) pkg taco seasoning mix

Thank goodness you decided to post another recipe Rolly. I was looking everywhere for my version of Mexican Soup you published last year. Trev and I have tried a few of your recipes, I am not a chili fan but he is, so I make much milder versions of the hotter recipes. Cooler weather has just arrived in our part of Australia, so time to get those winter recipes out.


Glad you've reached your second anniversary. I think you settle more into your new life in your third year. Maybe you just begin to get used to the way you are and your expectations become more realistic.


Good luck to you and Sue in all your endeavours.


Sue and Ray.
