Crazy Day Taco Soup

If your family is like my family you probably have those crazy days every now and then where things do not go as planned and as dinner time nears you have nothing prepared. On those days you need something quick and easy, right? And surely you wouldn't object if it was quick, easy, and good would you?

One of my families relatively new "crazy day" favorites is our own special version of taco soup. Now, let me warn you, we always make a LOT so you may want to size this recipe down to fit your family.

Crazy Day Taco Soup

2 lbs. taco meat
4-5 (14.5 oz.) cans of beans (we like a mix of ranch beans, black beans, and red kidney beans)
2-3 (14.5 oz.) cans of white hominy (corn could also be used, but my family prefers the hominy)
1 (28 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes
1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
1 (4 oz.) can of chopped green chilies
1 medium onion, chopped
2-3 cups milk (we often add extra water and use powdered milk)
Combine ingredients in big pot, add 5-6 cups of water and heat until hot. Serve with corn chips on the side. Top each bowl with grated cheese, a dollup of sour cream, and if desired, your favorite salsa.

Servings: 12+
