Taco Soup

(a.k.a. More! More! Casserole)
from mom -with my own changes

1 lb hamburger
1 1/2 cups+ elbow macaroni, cooked
3 cups Campbell’s Tomato Juice
1 can Hunt’s Petite Diced Tomatoes
1/2 to whole can corn
1/2 pkg Taco Bell Taco Seasoning
1 tsp+ Chili Powder
Minced Onions

In skillet, brown hamburger with minced onions. Remove from skillet to drain grease. Add taco seasoning. In skillet, add diced tomatoes, chili powder, and tomato juice. Allow to simmer slightly and add hamburger. Simmer a few more minutes while you wait for your elbow roni to finish cooking. Add corn. Add macaroni. Taste check to see if it needs more chili powder or taco seasoning. We like ours a little juicy so I add more tomato juice if needed. Serve promptly.
Can be served with toppings such as shredded cheese, Fritos, or with corn bread.
