Show us Your Life: Dinner Recipes

Here is another "Show us Your Life" from Kelly's Korner

This week is all about Dinner Recipes - I'm looking forward to this, because I need to learn some :)

Here's one that's SO simple, but it's a great type of Fall meal and GREAT to watch Football with :) Which we will be doing tomorrow. I actually bought the ingredients this evening - ha!

Taco Soup

1 lb. Ground Beef (or I guess you could use Ground Turkey)
1 can Diced Tomatoes
2 can Rotel
1 can Ranch Style Beans
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Corn (optional - I usually don't add corn)
1 pack of Taco Seasoning Mix
1 pack of Ranch Dip Mix (dry mix)
grated cheese
tortilla chips (I use TOSTITOS SCOOP! chips for maximum "scoop")

1. Brown the beef in large pot, once browned - drain beef and then add in Taco Seasoning Mix and blend into beef.
2. add in ALL other ingredients (juices and all) and stir and simmer until hot.
3. Serve with Tortilla Chips and top with cheese.

TA-DA - so so simple and really yummy :)

hope you enjoy :)

and just for fun here's a little dessert :)

Fruit Pizza

18 ounce package sugar cookie dough
8 ounce cream cheese package
8 ounce cool whip (thawed)
FRUIT (any kind you like)

1. Flatten dough into pizza shape on cooking sheet (pizza pan) and bake with cookie instructions. (makes a big cookie essentially)
2. Mix cream cheese and cool whip into bowl.
3. Once cookie is cooled, spread mixture onto cookie pizza.
4. pick ANY fruits you want and place in circles going into pizza.
**example: outer pizza circle strawberries, then peaches, then pineapples... then kiwi... etc.
5. Cut into "pizza slices" and serve!


Can't wait to see what everyone else does :)



That soup sounds really good! I wrote it down and am planning on making it this weekend :)! Thanks
