Taco Soup!

Another Biology test under my belt today, so I'm just happy to be here at this point.

The preparation involved for biology tests just wipes me out. I think it may wear a bit on JB, too.

After coming home from a full day's work yesterday, he reheated Taco Soup and made some mighty tasty grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. I was busy putting notes on 4X6 index cards so I could review key points without dragging around the full size notebook.

I appreciate the fact that he realizes we must eat and really doesn't make any issue of who does the cooking. I cook. He cooks. And it always works out better if we try to keep from doing it at the same time.

Anyway, the Taco Soup... hearty and delicious. I made a huge pot of this last year for last year's apple butter weekend. It reheats excellent. And it freezes well.

1.5 lb. lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic
1 medium onion, diced
2 cans beef broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1.5 cups salsa
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 cup spiral pasta noodles
Shredded cheese
Tortilla Chips

Combine beef, garlic and onions. Brown meat until no longer pink.
Add beef broth, tomatoes, salsa, and seasonings. Bring to boil, then add noodles.
Cover and simmer until noodles are tender.

Garnish with shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese. Serve with tortilla chips.
