Here is my twist on a taco soup, adding a BBQ flair:
BBQ Taco Soup
1 lbs. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 16 oz. can KC Masterpiece Smoky Bourbon Baked Beans
1 14.5 oz. can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 15.25 oz. can whole kernel corn - no salt added
Brown and drain ground beef in a frying pan and drain off oil. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef and sauté a little bit to brighten up the spices and then add the water as directed on the spice packet and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.
Open and add all of the cans (do not drain anything) and pour into a large sauce pan along with the taco meat. Heat over medium heat until heated throughout.
Optional toppings: sour cream, shredded cheese, cilantro, tortilla chips, or corn chips
Cheese suggestions: sharp cheddar, smoked cheddar, or smoked Gouda
This is a very hearty soup and is very filling.
