Taco Soup for Dinner

We have 7 guests coming for dinner this weekend to celebrate our
January birthdays.
I'll be serving Taco Soup and Fried Cornbread.
Apple Pie for dessert, maybe?

Here is my recipe for Taco Soup.
I hope that you love it as much as we do!

Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1 tablespoon chopped onion
2 cans Rotel tomatoes - we prefer the hot ones
2 cans Mexicali corn, undrained
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can hominy, undrained
1 small can tomato sauce
2 packages taco seasoning - we prefer McCormick
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing mix
Chopped hot peppers as desired
(I use a mixture of jalapenos, tabasco (peppers, not liquid), and habaneros)

Brown ground beef and onions in a skillet.
Pour beef and onion mixture into a crockpot.
(If you're dieting, you can drain off some of the fat.)
Add all ingredients to crockpot and simmer
for at least 8 hours.
If the mixture is too thick, add tomato juice.
Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, and Frito chips.

We like things muy picante,
so we usually add a few drops of
Dave's Insanity Sauce.

Buffalo Sauce is great, too - if you can find it.
