Freezer Meals: Taco Soup



This is a very yummy soup that is easy, quick & inexpensive to make. I usually make a double batch. One for dinner that night and the other to put in the freezer for a  freezer meal that is ready on those nights that you forget to plan dinner! This is also a great soup to take to a sick friend!
Freezer meals are also a great baby shower gift! give the expectant mother a double batch !

 Taco Soup:
Ingredients:
1 lb ground hamburger 
1 (16 oz)can kidney beans or black beans (drained and rinsed)
1  16 oz can corn (drained)
1 16 oz can beef broth
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes or diced tomatoes with green chilis 
1 (4 oz) can tomato sauce
1  package of taco seasoning 

Directions:
Brown the meat and drain all excess liquid.
Then in a a large pot combine meat, beans, corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning.
Let the soup simmer and "marry" in flavors.
Serve topped with cheese, sour cream, and corn chips


I always double the recipe so that we can eat it for that night's dinner, and then freeze all the leftovers.



If you are going to freeze the soup, there's 2 great ways to do it.

You can put it in any freezer safe container that will stack easily and put a piece of tape on it with the date on it.

Or, you can wait until the soup cools and place it in a ziplock bag and label the bag with the date.
(you can also put them in sandwich size baggies so that you can pull them out even for lunch and have a single serving)
After taking all the air out of the baggie, lay flat and freeze. After it is frozen, you can stand the bag of soup up on end and it takes up very little space!
