Peggy Jane's Weight Watcher Taco Soup...

This recipe has been doubled, except for the ground round, it made a huge pot, and it freezes well. Might as well make a lot when you have a mess in the kitchen.

 This stuff ROCKS!!!!

Peggy Jane's Weight Watcher Taco Soup

1 lb. ground round
1 chopped onion
1 can Rotel Original Tomatoes with Chiles
2 cans petite diced tomatoes
2 cans Bush pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cans Brooks HOT chili beans (DON'T DRAIN)
1 bag frozen corn -
1 package dry Taco Seasoning Mix

1 package dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix - Update: 10/3/17 - I'm going to leave this Hidden Ranch Dressing Mix out, it makes it too salty

You can also add 1-2 cans of chopped green chiles to this

Saute ground round and onion, you can also add green pepper if you like - add to remaining ingredients and simmer 20-30 minutes or even better, put it in the slow cooker on low for 4 hours, and add the corn at the end. That's it, really easy.

Weight Watcher Points for this is 2-3 per cup. I'm not sure of exact nutritionals, but it's very low in points, and a cup of it is filling. I freeze in small Glad Plastic Containers. This makes a HUGE pot...
