Yield: Easily enough for 4-6 servings.
Saute ground beef and chopped onions until beef is browned. Add the next 5 ingredients ending with the taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes, 1 hour if you are making larger amounts. Stir occasionally.
Serve with grated cheddar cheese and fried or toasted tortilla chips. Add a little sour cream, jalapeños, and black olives on top, as desired.
Crushed tortilla chips are a great garnish too.
This recipe may easily be doubled, tripled, or more. It freezes well. I can't think of an easier soup that I have made that is more delicious.
