Someone’s in the Kitchen with Dinah

You can find inspiration in the darndest places. I was making a Moroccan-Rubbed Grilled Steak for dinner last week and the combination of colors really appealed to me – and not just because I knew I’d be eating them soon.

I could have made half the amount of sweet potatoes, but man, were they every good!

Last night was Taco Soup. The simplest recipe, courtesy of my Mom

1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey – browned

2 cans each of kidney beans, white beans, black beans, pinto beans

1 large can hominy (or corn)

1 large can of tomato sauce

1 tomato sauce can of water

1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing (powder form)

1 package of taco seasoning (powder form)

Dump all the ingredients into a pot and simmer. If you want it more soup like, add more water. Cut the ingredients in half if you want to simmer in your crock pot.

This recipe makes a lot of soup. You can also cut it in half if you have less than a small army to feed.
