There are so many variations of taco soup out there. I have no idea where I picked this one up but we love it! Like all good recipes, it has been modified a bit over the years.

Ingredients:
1 pound ground turkey or 93/7 ground beef (optional, it is good without as well)
1 large onion, chopped
1 pkg taco seasoning mix or homemade equivalent (8 tsp)
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn (or one can)
1 14.5 oz low sodium chicken broth
1 14.5 oz can black beans, undrained
1 14.5 oz can white beans, undrained
1 14.5 oz can refried beans
1 14.5 oz can Rotel tomatoes & green chilies
1 14.5 oz can no salt added diced tomatoes

Brown ground turkey or hamburger in skillet. Soften onions in skillet while cooking meat. Drain if needed. Add meat/onion mixture and all other ingredients to a large pot or crockpot. Simmer uncovered for 1 hour or until ready to serve, or cook in crockpot until ready to serve (4 hours on high or 8 on low… all ingredients are already cooked though so it may not take that long).
Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips or strips.

Makes about 14 one cup servings.
