1 lb. ground beef
1 medium chopped onion
1 pkg. of taco seasoning mix
1 pkg. of ranch dressing mix
1 (14oz) of stewed tomatoes
1 can of Rotel tomatoes or tomatoes with chilies ( optional)
2 ( 16 oz each) cans of pinto beans ( black beans and kidney beans are good as well)
1 ( 16 oz) can of whole kernel corn
1 cup of water
Brown meat and onions in the taco seasoning. Drain the meat. Dump all ingredients in the crock pot. Simmer for 4 hours. May cook in a large soup pot on top of the stove for 1 hour.Can add additional water if mixture is too thick.
To serve, spoon into bowls and top with chesee and sour cream, if desired.
I use tortilla chips in the bowl or just eat it as a dip..
I place in the the crock pot on low for 6 -8 hours.
