Favorite Ingredient Friday~Taco chili

I almost forgot to do a recipe for FIF today! I guess things are really busier than usual around here. With Izzy recovering from yesterday, we are spending the day pampering and snuggling her a lot. She is better today though. Thanks for your prayers.

I saw this recipe last week on Paula Deen and it is a lot like the taco soup recipe but calls for dried beans, sounds fabulous right?

Taco Chili

1 cup dried kidney beans

1/2 cup dried pinto beans

1 (1 1/4-ounce) package taco seasoning mix

1 (1-ounce) package buttermilk salad dressing mix

3 tablespoons dried minced onion

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 1/2 cups corn or tortilla chips
4 cups water

1 (11 3/4-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles

1 (16-ounce) can tomato sauce

1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained

Place beans in a large bowl, cover with water and soak 6 to
8 hours, or overnight. Drain and add to a Dutch oven. Add seasonings, water, diced tomatoes and green chiles, tomato sauce, and ground beef.
Heat to boiling, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2 hours, or until beans are tender. Or just throw it all in the crockpot for the day and voila!

Serve with corn or tortilla chips.

Head over to Overwhelmed for more!

Sounds really good1 I keep thinking one of these days I am going to get organized and try making out some menus for the week and even write down some of our favorite recipes. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm still thinking about it!
I'm glad to hear Izzy is feeling better.
