E's "Taco Soup"

In my household, I don't do much cooking because I get home later than my fiance and, honestly, I'm not that good at it. I can't tell when the chicken breasts are done (I always think I see pink) and ask me to whip up some instant potatoes and you'll get something with a gravy-like consistancy. I think it's just bad luck, or maybe it's that my mind is always going and I can't stay focused on what I'm doing. Anyway, E (what I'm calling my fiance for blogging purposes) has the uncanny knack of being able to put different ingredients together and creating food that tastes good. I don't know how he does it!

What I'm sharing with you today probably isn't that unusual, but a few weeks ago E made a dip from cream cheese, salsa, Frank's Red Hot sauce, shredded cheese, and bacon. I know bacon makes everything better, but really? Salsa and bacon? It was awesome - and addicting. Blows. My. Mind.

E really loves using the crock pot and has a thing for making chunky soups and chilis. He called this "Taco Soup."

The ingredients: two cans sweet corn, two cans sliced black olives, one can each of kidney beans, baked beans, diced tomatoes, diced potatoes, pinto beans, two packets of taco seasoning, and beef stew meat

E put everything in the crock pot in the morning and let it cook all day until dinner.

Here it is ready to eat. I put a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of shredded cheese on top.
It was really tasty! Since it is getting colder outside, E's Taco Soup is perfect for this time of year.
