My Aunt Linda gave me this recipe several years ago. I'm not sure why it's called "Cowboy Soup," (it's more of a stew) but since she lives in Texas and Texans know everything there is to know about cowboys (right?!), I decided to go with it.
I love the simplicity of this recipe!
-1 can pinto beans
-1 can ranch style beans
-1 can corn
-1 can hominy
-1 can stewed tomatoes
-1 can rotel tomatoes
-1 pkg. taco seasoning
-1 pkg. Ranch dressing mix
-1 pound ground beef
(Note: Sometimes I have a hard time finding ranch style beans. I improvise with this soup and use whatever I think might taste good.)
Brown the ground beef. Drain and add all the ingredients to a large soup pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer until cooked through. (15 to 20 minutes)
I like to sprinkle some cheddar cheese on my soup after dishing it out. A dollop of sour cream might be good too. Served with a side of warm cornbread or biscuits, this is a great cold weather meal!
Nope, it's not a "pretty" recipe, but it sure is tasty!
