Here's what I made: Spicy Taco Soup with Cornbread

You might have seen last week, I posted Mike's mom's Famous Taco Soup recipe.  I thought it would be fun to adapt this recipe to fit this month's KMU.  Already in the recipe from the mystery ingredients are: a 1/2 pound of ground beef, can of diced tomatoes, tomato soup, can of kidney beans, and can of vegetable soup.  To make it spicy, I just added 1/2 cup Sriracha before the 45 minute simmer.  

I also made this corn bread, but this time, I made it with strained, canned corn, and it tasted much more flavorful than last time with the frozen corn.

PS, Happy Birthday to my beautiful momma!!

So..... I definitely didn't get around to making a video. Blogging has been so far on the back burner this month, it's frustrating, honestly. I do plan on linking up tonight though, but due to the snow and me not feeling oh so grand.... the ingredients must come from my kitchen at this precise moment lol, so we'll see what I end up with! That chili sounds amazing though!!! :)

Did you hear that the Sriacha plant might be closing? Terrible news. This link up sounds so fun, until I realize that I have no creativity in the kitchen and I only follow recipes.
