Mexican Soup/Stew

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.
