Mexican Soup/Stew

From THE GRANDISON AT MANEY PARK
The minute the weather turns colder, my kids are at the store packing in the ingredients for this mouth watering, "warm to your toes" comfort food.

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can stewed tomatoes (can be diced, chopped, etc.) — do not drain
1 can corn — do not drain
1 can pinto beans — drain and rinse
1 small can chopped green chilies — drained
1 can Ranch Style beans — do not drain
1 can water
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dip dry mix

Brown meat and onion. Combine all other ingredients in a large pot, add browned meat and onion. Salt & pepper to taste. Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. You can serve sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese and tortilla chips — YUMMY! We also add other kinds of beans and it seems to become even more yummy. Let your imagination be your guide: try black beans, red beans, kidney beans.
