Easy Taco Soup

This is a super easy and fast soup to make when you don't have a lot of time.  Its also very tasty.  When I make a soup like this I like to set out a lot of toppings, the kids enjoy customizing their bowl and are more likely to eat it.  Plus its a lot of fun.  Enjoy!

Here's what you need:

1lb ground beef
1 box (32 ounces) beef broth
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 package taco seasoning
1 can corn with sweet peppers

Toppings can include: Crushed tortilla chips, hot sauce, sour cream, shredded cheese, diced avocado, diced onions etc.


What you do:
In a large pot, brown the beef and then drain off the fat.  Add broth to beef, beans, tomatoes and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat and let simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.  Stirring occasionally. Stir in the corn and serve.
