Carnival of Recipes

#65 is up.

A Red, White, and Blue theme, in honor of Veteran's Day.

And the perfect example: Red Beans, White Rice, and the Blues.

And remember last week's Taco Soup? I made it, substituting a large can of Ranch style beans with jalapenos, a can diced tomatos with chilis, using about half the container of V8, and adding some extra spices: about 1 tsp cumin and chili powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper and paprika [in addition to the taco seasoning]. It turned out great. Served with fresh cilanto, a little sour cream or cheddar cheese... Good stuff. I think you could cut down a little on the beef if you wanted, without any evil effects. [1 1/2 lbs, maybe 1 lb.] And a small can of diced black olives, which I don't think added much.

The taco soup sure turned out to be popular.
I like how you have 'tweaked' the recipe, similar to what I do.I also cut back on the amount of beef.
Glad you enjoyed it.
