BFS Assignment #105

Memory Verse: Psalms 13:6 NIVI will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me.
Please try to learn our memory verse this week. We will be sharing a new verse every week and hope that you will store them in your hearts and find a special joy in His words.

Intro: M’m M’m Good (Campbell’s Soup)The fall is such a wonderful time of year. The beautiful foliage and cool, crisp morning air is such a wonderful change from the hot summer. I also love the M’m M’m good smell of fall cooking and baking. The wonderful fall veggies, fruits and Thanksgiving foods.

Assignment: Post your favorite fall recipe/recipes to share. I love trying new recipes, do you? It can be baking, main dishes, veggies, dessert or anything else you can think of. There are no limits. Mmmmmm..I can’t wait to take a look at some of those recipes.

Okay, my all-time favorite thing to cook in the fall is a big batch of soup. And -- my favorite soup of all-time is Fiesta (Taco) soup. I will make a big pot of it, and we'll eat it. Then, we'll freeze some of it. It's really easy to make, and super delicious. Here's the recipe:

Fiesta (Taco) Soup
2 lbs hamburger meat
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans diced tomatoes w/green chiles
1 can chopped green chiles
1 can mexi-corn
1 can white corn
1 can light red kidney beans
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can chili beans or pinto beans (your choice)
1 packet of ranch dressing
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of water (I usually use half or less)
optional toppings (cheese, sour cream, etc.)
1 bag tortilla chips

Brown the hamburger meat and drain. Add to a big pot. Add all of the other ingredients. Stir together and bring to a boil. Simmer as long as you'd like. The longer, the better in my opinion. ENJOY!

***edited to add that the chips are only for dipping while you eat the soup (instead of crackers). Sorry for any confusion.***

The Bible verse that I'm thinking of this week is my all-time favorite:
"Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

HI Sherrie!
I have never had taco soup before. I think I will have to try it. Do you put the chips in the soup just before you cook them or are they supposed to be soggy?

We won't be at bowling tomorrow. Carl is coming home early so I can go vote before he deploys and I am struggling with a cold/allergies right now. :)

I hope you have a blessed Thursday!! :)

Taco soup sounds wonderful, especially on a day when one feels like something with a kick! Thank you for sharing with us.
