Cheap and Easy Taco Soup


This is a super easy and inexpensive meal that freezes great and can be made in large quantities.  I do it often for church group when I need to feed a lot of people but don't want to break the bank.  I got this recipe from a friend and no one know where it came from. If you know, please comment and I will give correct citation.



1lb hamburger

1 packet taco seasoning (I sometimes just pour 1/2)

1 large can tomato puree (23oz)

1 can corn (15oz)

1 can black beans (15oz)

1 can ranch beans (15oz)

1 can pinto beans (15oz)

1/2 can red beans (15oz)

1/2 can kidney beans (15oz)



Brown meat. You can drain grease if you want (I keep it in there). Get going with your can opener and open and dump everything. You can let it cook for 20 min or 4 hours. I split into tupperwares and freeze. Usually when I make this I will double recipe.
