Taco Soup

-adapted from a recipe by Lesley Cunningham, (my aunt) Jacksonville, Alabama

1 1/2 lbs ground beef (I usually use ground turkey)
1 onion (I use onion powder)
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 small can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can corn
2/3 C salsa
1 TBSP chili powder
1 packet taco seasoning mix (I usually use mild or regular since my kids can't handle the hot)
2 garlic cloves or garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 small can diced green chilis (optional)

-Cook the meat with the onion.
-Add other ingredients and allow to simmer for 15-20 mins or cook in crock pot for 2-3 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low.
-Serve with chips, salsa, sour cream, grated cheese and sliced olives.

~Quick, Easy and Delicious!!
