A Good Night for Soup

Last night was Taco Soup night. I wanted to post the recipe here so I could pin it to my Pinterest recipe board (yes, Pinterest is where I spend what little spare time I have now!).

Taco Soup

Two pounds of ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can red kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 envelope ranch dressing mix

Brown the ground beef with the onion and bell pepper in a large dutch oven. After meat is brown and vegetables are soft, drain the fat and add all the canned ingredients--don't drain! Add the two envelopes of seasoning mix and simmer on low for about an hour.  To serve, I top each bowl with grated cheese and loosely crushed tortilla chips. Makes about eight large servings.

I don't know the calorie count, but I use lean ground meat, and if you leave off the tortilla chips, it's fairly low carb.

Victoria Quilt Show

The Victoria Quilt Guild had their annual show March 23 and 24, and I was able to go and spend a few hours looking at all the quilts. I got pictures of many of them.








 I'm still having trouble getting the pictures lined up like I want them in Google Blogger so this is a pretty chaotic mix, but I think I got the ones that are detail pics immediately following the larger view of the same quilt.
