Taco Soup

I finally measured the ingredients when I was making this last night. Ross loves it. It's fabulous for days like we are having...snowy, 0* windchill. Bring on the warm soup!

1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 small can tomato sauce
1 cup frozen corn
1 pack taco seasoning
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp baking soda
salt to taste

-Brown beef in large soup pot. Drain out all grease.
-Saute onion and garlic in olive oil and add beef back to pot.
-Add all ingredients except for beans and corn.
-When you add the baking soda, it will foam all up. This helps to cut the acidity from the tomatoes.
-Simmer for at least one hour, adding beans and corn about 20 minutes before you are ready to serve.
-Serve topped with shredded cheese, tortilla chips and sour cream.
