We loooooooove this soup.  So hearty and easy to make in the slow cooker!

Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can onion Ranch Beans
1 can golden Hominy (large soft corn, yummy, find at HEB)
1 large can, diced green chiles
1 onion, chopped
1 package dry ranch dressing mix
1 beef bouillon cube
Water
Toppings:
Shredded Cheddar
Sour Cream
Fritos corn chips

I prefer to cook this on low all day, so that the flavors can blend. Dump it all in the slow cooker. Add water a little at a time until you get your desired consistency. My husband likes it more hearty and less soupy so I add less water. It’s up to you.
Enjoy!
