Taco Soup

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pkg mild taco seasoning mix
1 16 oz can cut corn (drain if you want a thicker soup)
1 16 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 28 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce

Optional Toppings:
tortilla chips
grated cheese
sour cream

Brown ground beef in large sauce pan. Drain fat. Saute chopped onion. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with toppings.

Healthier versions:
With only 1/2 lb ground beef there is 157 calories per 1/2 c serving. (Not including toppings.)
With no ground beef there is 111 calories per 1/2 c serving. (Not including toppings.) If not using beef, only use 1/2 of the taco seasoning pkg.
Toppings will add tons of calories so don't go overboard. Each tortilla chip adds about 10 calories, 1 T of sour cream adds 30 calories, and 1 oz of cheddar cheese adds 110 calories.
