What's For Dinner? Taco Soup Here!

I was wondering what everyone else was doing for dinner tonight?? We've been sort of stale with dinner choices lately. Tonight I tossed together something different to try to get us out of this rut! We're having taco soup. Here's what I used!

Taco Soup
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 package taco seasoning
1 package ranch salad dressing mix

Brown ground beef with onion. Drain and add to soup pot.
Open and dump in all canned items (do not drain!).
Open and add seasoning packets.
Mix well. Heat till bubbling then turn heat down to simmer and cook for 1/2 hour.

With these ingredients, it boils down to this for one cup of soup:
fat--10 total, 3.4 saturated
carbs--20.8 total, 5.1 fiber and 3.8 sugars
protein--22.6 grams

Not too bad for something SO simple to fix! I may just sprinkle on some of Michelle's cotija cheese too!
