Taco Soup

Here is my version of taco soup.

1 lb ground beef
1 onion diced
1 cup salsa
1 can diced tomatoes & green chilies
1 clove minced garlic
1 pk taco seasoning (or mix your own and add)
1 pk ranch dressing mix
2 cans black beans, drained
2 cups frozen corn (or drained canned corn)
1 TBS beef bouillon
Water – as preferred
Pepper to taste
Grated cheddar cheese (garnish)
Tortilla chips (garnish)
Optionals: (you can sub another bean if you prefer)
Celery chopped (cook with onion & beef) green onion (topping)

Brown ground beef with onion, add garlic when beef is almost fully browned. Drain. In large pot, add beef mixture, and all ingredients. Add water to preference (I add less water, as we prefer less broth). Bring to boil and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve with chips and grated cheese.
