    Matthias is wise. Does he ever call you mean? That’s what my four-year-old has been calling me anytime I say anything that remotely sounds like discipline. The other day I told her she couldn’t have a second ice-cream and she said, “You hurt my feelings.” !!!

    Lisa, wanted to share a quick & easy recipe our family loves, seriously “dump & heat in a crockpot” once you brown the beef~

    Taco Soup

    1 ½ lbs lean ground beef, browned and drained OR 2 C diced cooked chicken / ground turkey
    1 16oz can black beans, undrained
    1 16oz can pinto beans, undrained
    2 14oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 14oz can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 package taco seasoning mix, dry
    1 package ranch dip mix, dry

    Combine all ingredients in a crock pot and simmer on low for 6 hours OR heat thoroughly to blend flavors and simmer until serving. Place crumbled tortilla chips, bite size corn chips, or soft flour tortillas. In individual bowls. Cover w/ meat mixture.

    Top w/ : sour cream, shredded cheese, sliced black olives, chopped green onions.

    *** This is a thicker consistency. I did end up adding about a cup of water, and on the spur of the moment a couple dashes of hot sauce, a spoonful of jarred garlic, and some salt and ground pepper.

    Enjoy! We eat this every few weeks, its so delish!
