The Alderwood Quilts blog is for customers, friends and quilt enthusiasts. . Sue and her husband also own run a small lavender farm along with the quilt shop. You'll see lavender and other gardening topics, as well as knitting, recipes, photos of kids and pets.. and whatever else comes to mind.
Sue- Glad to hear the weather has let up some for you. It is warm in Texas. The high was 70 degrees. I can't cook a good chili, but I do have a quick and hardy soup recipe.
Mexican Bean Soup
1lb ground beef 1 can pinto beans
1pkg taco seasoning mix 1 can black beans
1pkg dry ranch salad dressing 1 can whole corn
3 cans diced tomatoes 2 cups water
1 can Rotel tomatoes
(you can use 1 small jar mild salsa instead of Rotel tomatoes- same flavor no heat)
Brown meat in large pot. Drain. Add remaining ingredients, stirring well. Simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with cornbread or corn chips and grated cheddar cheese on top. Freezes well
