Tamale Soup

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

I have a good recipe for Tamale Soup. It is one of those that you can use for numerous different dishes. I serve it the first night as soup with cheese quesadillas, the next day as nachos for lunch and then the next as burrito or chimichanga filling. This makes a bunch.

1lb. ground beef 1 onion diced 1/2 bell pepper, diced Brown the above together in bottom of dutch oven. When brown, add 1 can beef broth, 1 can cream of corn soup, 2 cans pinto beans(I use Ranch style), 1 can diced tomatoes(juice and all). Simmer for 1 hour. Add 2 cans tamales, cut into bite size pieces and simmer for 15 more minutes. This is great served with corn chips and a touch of shredded cheese on top!

Thanks for sharing the recipe, sounds delicious. However, since I must watch sodium I was visually counting milligrams sodium of each ingredient. Wow, that is sky high in sodium. Think I will have to pass but it sure does sound great to me!! My mouth is watering!!

I made this for supper tonight and it was delicious! Thanks Ivy! Everyone loved it. I make my own soups and tamales so the salt content wasn't so much. I couldn't find Ranch-style beans so I used diced tomatoes with chilis. My daughter said to add this to the family favorites file. Thanks again!
