Welcome Tipnut readers! You sure have come from one of the handiest sites on the web! I do hope you’ll enjoy Southern Plate. It is great to have you here!
Y’all said you wanted quick and easy meals and I’ve been listening! I am going to try to post one quick meal idea each week.
This week that has come in handy for me as well as I work on creating a better index for Southern Plate and Slideshows for each category. I’ve finally figured out how to get it all done but its just taking some time. I’ll have a slideshow for every category on the sidebars and when you click on the title of that category, it will take you to a page which lists every dish in that category (Each name will be clickable to take you directly to that page and even though clickable is not technically a word in the real world, it certainly is on Southern Plate though, because I said so).
Whew! Now that I’m done with my rambling, let me show you the world’s easiest supper. This supper is also awfully darn tasty! My son ate three bowls!
I first made this soup about ten years ago (oh lord, that makes me feel so old!). We instantly fell in love with it. Even if it weren’t so incredibly quick and easy, the flavor would have won me over on its own. You’re just not going to believe how great this tastes!
You’ll need: 2 cans kidney beans, corn, Ro-Tel, tomato sauce, 1 package Ranch dressing mix, 1 package taco seasoning mix, and about a pound of beef (more if you’d like). I cook my beef ahead of time and freeze it in individual meal sized portions so I just grabbed a bag from the freezer, which makes this even easier!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 Lg chopped onion cooked with beef
- 2 cans kidney beans
- 1 can corn
- 1- 15 oz can Ro-Tel
- 1- 15 oz can Tomato Sauce
- 1 packet taco seasoning mix
- 1 packet ranch dressing mix
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Combine all ingredients, bring to a boil and then simmer for fifteen minutes.
*Just dump in cans, liquid and all!
Fall TV is underway, have you found any shows that you particularly like? If so, I’d love to hear about them! In the comments section, tell me what shows you like, what networks they come on, and what day and time!
So far, all I am watching is Army Wives on Lifetime and True Blood on HBO (I just love Sookie!). Those both come on Sunday nights and I’d love to know of something good that came on another night but I never actually watch network TV during the day (It’s all Noggin or Disney Channel here!) so I don’t get to see previews or commercials about anything to know!
Thank you so much for reading Southern Plate! I’ve got lots more in the works for you so come back often and sit a spell!
