1 pound lean, ground beef
1 Tbsp. oil (I use olive or canola oil)
I small onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 package low sodium taco seasoning
1 package Italian dressing mix
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can mild Rotel tomatoes
2 cans three bean blend, drained or the canned bean of your choice
1 can hominy, drained
2 cups water
Cheddar or Mexican cheese
Fresh cilantro, chopped
In a skillet, brown 1 pound of ground beef and drain well. In a stock or soup pot, add oil. Add diced onion and pepper and cook, over medium heat, until onion is almost transparent. Add ground beef to onion and pepper and mix well. Add taco seasoning and dressing mix. Toss mixture with a spoon or spatula to caot evenly. Add tomatoes, beans, hominy and water. Mix well and simmer over medium heat until the mixture comes to a low boil. Reduce heat to low and cover for an additional 15 minutes.
