Two new recipes-Taco Soup and Taco Spaghetti

The last couple of weeks I have made Taco Soup a couple of times. It's really good to take to work for lunch on a cold day. Last Sunday I made a new recipe, Taco Spaghetti. It was so good. I hope you enjoy the recipes.

Taco Soup
1 to 1 1/2 pounds lean hamburger
1 medium onion
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
1 large can diced tomatoes, sometimes I use another small can
Add some water
1 can corn undrained
Brown hamburger with onion, drain grease off, add other ingredients and simmer for a while.
Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips.

Taco Spaghetti
1 pound or so of ground beef
1 small chopped onion
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
11 oz can of corn drained
1 cup of cheddar cheese
3/4 cup salsa
5 oz or so of broken spaghetti broken into smaller pieces

Cook and drain your pasta. Brown ground beef with onion. Drain any fat, then add taco seasoning and water and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add corn, pasta, salsa, half of cheese. Lightly mix. Pour into greased 2 qt casserole dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Top with rest of cheese and serve with sour cream and taco chips if desired. I cooked mine in an oven proof skillet so it only took the one pan. I cut into pie sized wedges, a dollop of sour cream on top and tortilla chips. The leftovers were just as good as the day I made it.
