(originally given to me by my niece, Dawn Paulson in Atlanta, GA.
I have adjusted it some to fit my busy schedule, e.g., using the frozen Season Blend instead of the freshly diced veggies, and browning the meat as soon as I bring it home from the grocery store, and freezing it already browned and drained.)
1 16-oz can Fat Free Refried Beans
1 16-oz can Black Beans, drained and thoroughly rinsed
1 16-oz can Kidney Beans, drained and thoroughly rinsed (either light or dark)
2 cans of water (or 2 cups of V-8 juice–-my preference--I also use the V-8 juice to thin it down if the soup gets too thick--I got that suggestion from you & it really does taste better.)
1 large (24-oz) can Diced Tomatoes
1 small (8-oz) can Tomato Sauce
1 small can Corn, drained (or 1 cup frozen corn kernals/niblets)
1 pkg frozen Season Blend (Picksweet makes it, I believe)
[or 1 large finely chopped onion, ½ cup diced green & red peppers, and ½ cup diced celery–to equal about 2 cups of these veggies]
3/4 to 1 lb very lean ground meat (turkey or beef), browned, thoroughly drained & rinsed, and then crumbled into small pieces
1 pkg Taco Seasoning (to taste–-depending on whether you like highly seasoned foods--I know you do)
1 pkg dry Ranch Dressing Seasonings
