Zesty Taco Soup

I love soup, especially soup with a tomato base and loads of flavor. This soup has tomato base, ground beef, black beans, and corn. It is spicy and absolutely delicious. This soup tastes marvelous topped with shredded cheese and Texas toast croutons or tortilla strips. I make this a vegetable soup to make it a self-sufficient meal that is hearty.
