Taco Soup

1 1/4 pound(s) raw extra lean ground beef   
1 large raw onion  
3 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s)
3 15 oz cans of chili or pinto beans (not drained) [I used 2 cans pinto, 1 can dark kidney]
1 can whole kernel corn (not drained)
2 cans diced tomatoes (not drained) [optional]
1 can green chilies [optional]
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 pkg. taco seasoning [I used reduced sodium]
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (not mixed up- powder only)

Brown hamburger and onion. Drain. Combine all other ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes. Will freeze for three months.

Notes: I serve this soup with a tablespoon of sour cream on top, and some Tostitos bite size chips. YUM! I also used more hamburger than the original recipe called for. The original recipe only used 8 oz, or half a lb of beef, which would make the points value lower.

Serves about 12 (1 cup servings)
WW points 4
