Taco Soup

I got this idea from clstar on my cooking site I didnt have the ingredients, so i took the general idea and went with it. I will post my recipe, and the orginal. It was really good though. Great for a chilly day!
My version:
1/2lb Beef Stew meat
2 cans no salt added diced tomatos
4 Cups pinto, kidney, Black beans (i had some dried beans, it was about 1 cup of each i put in pot to soak)
4T chili powder
2tsp sumin
2tsp corriander
1tsp oregano
1/2tsp cayenne pepper
1/2tsp onion powder
1/2tsp garlic powder
2 1/2C frozen corn
1C water
15 oz crushed concentrated tomatos
Put everything in crockpot on low til meat is tender (6-8 hrs)

Orginal Recipe
Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef (we sometimes use ground turkey)
2 packs taco seasoning
1 pack ranch dressing mix
1 can black beans
1 can dark kidney beans
1 can light kidney beans
1 can whole kernel white corn
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes (you can use another can of Rotel if you want a little more heat)cheese, sour cream, green onions and tortilla chips for garnish

-In a large pot, add all of the canned ingredients (don't drain them).-Add one pack of taco seasoning and the ranch dressing mix. Set pot over medium-low heat. -Meanwhile, brown the ground beef (or turkey) and follow the directions on the taco seasoning pack.-Once the meat is browned and seasoning added, place the meat in the pot. Add a little water if you want to thin it out some. Don't worry, it won't take away from any of the flavor.-Bring to a boil and the reduce to medium-low.-Let simmer for thirty minutes or longer (or until you can't handle the delicious aroma coming from your kitchen and finally have to break down and eat some).-Serve with cheese, sour cream, green onions and tortilla chips (we love the blue corn ones).-Enjoy!
