Number of Servings:


  1. 1 1/2 pounds - lean ground beef
  2. 2 cups - chopped white OR yellow onion
  3. 2 cloves - garlic chopped
  4. 1 tablespoons - butter
  5. 3 cans - 15 oz Ranch style beans
  6. 1 cans - 15.4 oz. whole kernel corn undrained
  7. 1 cans - 15.5 oz. Bush's white hominy drained
  8. 1 cans - 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes
  9. 1 cans - 4 oz. chopped green chiles
  10. - salt and fresh ground black pepper to your taste (I use 2 teaspoons salt)
  11. - a little bit of cayenne red pepper optional, for extra spice


1. In a large skillet melt butter on medium-high heat and then add chopped onion and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until softened and then add ground beef. Continue to cook and stir until no longer pink; drain excess fat.

2. In a large soup-pot combine all ingredients. Bring to a slow bubble and then simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to set about 30 minutes before serving so that flavors blend well.

Suggested condiments: tortillas, tortilla chips, chopped onion, green onion, sour cream, shredded cheese, radishes, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, cornbread
