1 tsp EACH cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder,  & coriander (I didn’t use paprika or coriander because I didn’t have any)

Salt & pepper

1 lb ground beef

1/2 an onion, chopped

3-4 garlic cloves, minced (didn’t have, didn’t use)

1 can pinto beans (14.5 oz)

1 can kidney beans (14.5 oz) (traded for northern beans because my family isn’t fond of kidney beans)

1 c frozen corn

2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz each)

1 can diced green chiles (4 oz)

1/2 oz of ranch dressing mix (1/2 packet) (didn’t have any, googled it and realized it had a lot of dill in it, so I used 1 tsp of the Pampered Chef Dill mix)

These last 2, I added to the original recipe

1 cup beef broth (the soup was more like stew/chili and I wanted it “wetter”)

2 Tbsp Worcestershire


Cook beef with all the seasonings. Add garlic. Drain.

Add beans, corn, tomatoes, chiles and ranch dressing mix.

Simmer on low for 2 hours.
