In a Dutch oven, brown 1 pound lean ground beef and 1 large chopped onion over medium heat, stirring constantly, until beef is browned and crumbly and onion is soft. Drain off any excess fat. Stir in (3) 15 ½-oz.cans of Mexican-style chili hot beans (undrained), a 15 ¼-oz. can of whole kernel corn (undrained), a 15-oz. can of tomato sauce, a 14 ½-oz. can of Mexican-style chopped tomatoes (undrained), a 4 ½-oz. can of chopped green chiles (undrained), a 1 ¼-oz. envelope of taco seasoning mix, a 1-oz. envelope of Ranch-style salad dressing mix, and 1 ½ cups water. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes (or more), stirring occasionally. Ladle soup into bowls for serving. Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of finely shredded Cheddar cheese, and some fresh cilantro. Serve with cornsticks, Mexican Skillet Cornbread, or Green Chile Cornbread. (I will be uploading a video of the Green Chile Cornbread tomorrow!) I hope you enjoy this nice, beautiful, hearty soup! --Betty
