Soup and Sale....

I know I haven't mentioned much about couponing and how much I've saved in quite some time....that might be because I haven't done it.


One of my favorite things to cook when it is winter is Taco Soup. I got the recipe from Anthony's Aunt Debbie and from his mom.

Yesterday, as I was looking through the sales ads, I noticed that several of the ingredients are on sale at Publix. Since people are ALWAYS asking me for the recipe, I thought this would be the perfect time to share!

  • Ground Beef --coupon in the Publix Ad to save $1 on Publix Ground Beef
  • Chopped Onion or Onion Powder/Flakes
  • Rotel--coupon in the Publix Ad to save $.75 on two cans of Rotel
  • 1 can Pinto Beans--Bush's on Advantage Buy, 4 for $3 (16 oz)
  • 1 can Kidney Beans--Bush's on Advantage Buy, 4 for $3 (16 oz)
  • 1 can Black Beans
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes--Del Monte on Advantage Buy, 2 for $3 (28 oz)
  • 1 pack Taco Seasoning--McCormick Taco Mix 3 for $2
  • 1 pack Ranch Dressing Mix (dry)
  • Tortilla Chips--Mission chips 2 for $5
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Sour Cream--coupon (Red Plum or Smart Source, don't remember) for Smart Balance
  1. Brown beef with onion or onion powder/flakes
  2. Drain meat
  3. Put into large pot and add all other ingredients except cheese, chips, and sour cream
  4. Simmer for 45 minutes
Serve with chips, cheese, and sour cream.

***I can't handle spice so I do everything as mild as possible but you can make this as hot as you'd like, even adding hot sauce to it.

***As far as the beans go, you can mix it up all you want, you can do 2 of Pinto, 1 of Kidney or whatever. I just like to make them all different. The main thing is that you need 3 cans.

Oooo...this looks really good! May have to try this soon! Your last post about being a SAHM has made me really think about you today (I read it yesterday). I am praying for you, there is no perfect answer and neither option is easy. God's going to take you down the right path though and Ansleigh is going to grow up beautiful (which she already is) and successful no matter what because she has such great parents!
