really great vegetarian taco soup.

whenever michael’s out of town i like to make a recipe that i don’t think that he would particularly enjoy with me.  usually it’s something with beans in it since michael hates doesn’t like beans… yet.  i’m pretty sure that he’ll become an avid bean-lover sometime during our marriage… i’m just waiting for him to really give them a chance. 😉

  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can black-eyed peas
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can navy beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can green beans
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 can rotel (i used the mild)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/2 to 1 packet ranch dressing mix (i used 1/2, but if you love ranch, you could use a whole packet)
