Taco Soup

1 lb ground meat
1 can diced tomatoes (you can purée first if you have friends who don’t “like chunks”. My mom may or may not do this for my grown brothers…I refuse. Chunks are good.)
1 can corn
1 small can diced green chilies
1 can kidney beans (or white beans)
1/2 jar of salsa or taco sauce
A shake or two of Chalula never hurt anyone (but you can leave it out too)
Cook and brown up your ground meat. Drain liquid. Open your cans and pour them in (don’t even drain them). Heat it up and enjoy.
Top with toppings if you so wish.

Vanilla Pudding Sauce

Vanilla Pudding Sauce
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp vanilla
Mix cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Whisk together milk and egg thoroughly, and gradually stir in. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, till mixture comes to a boil. (Don’t be tempted to turn up the heat; if it gets hot too fast, the egg will cook. And scrambled eggs in vanilla sauce would be bad. Really, really bad.) Boil for at least 1 minute, still stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve warm or chilled.

**We had this on our waffles this morning. Delicious!**
