Hearty Meaty Taco Soup

This is more like a stew! You could also make Mexican Cheesy Pasta with this. Cook pasta and then top with stew and shredded cheese - great main dish.

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 lbs lean ground beef (could use 1 lean beef & 1 ground turkey breast)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 14.5 oz can whole kernel corn
1 16 oz cans of ranch style beans
3 cans of diced tomatoes w/ garlic & onion (replace 1 can with Rotel if want spicy)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg Hidden Valley dressing mix
Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese (topping)

Add olive oil to the pan, saute onions and garlic for a few minutes. Add ground beef, brown and add salt/pepper to taste. Take the 3 cans of tomatoes and puree (my clan will not eat things with tomatoes, so I hide them by pulverizing them). Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Simmer 1-2 hours. Top it with shredded cheese and serve with Garlic Cheddar Biscuits.
