Taco Stew

This started out as Taco Soup, turns out I'm not real good at soups so it became more of a stew.  It was very good tho!

1 small package of lean ground beef
4 TBS taco seasoning (I buy bulk so I guess a packet will do)
1.5 TBS flour
These spices I don't know how much:
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Cumin Powder
Cayenne Powder
Crushed Red Pepper
Just a tad of Chili Powder
Salt and Pepper
1 Can whole kernel corn, drained
1 Can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup Cheddar cheese
2 TBS diced pickled jalapenos
2 cups chicken broth
1 package frozen sweet plantains
Sour cream
2 cups cooked rice

Brown ground beef in a deep pot until no longer pink, drain grease. Add flour to meat and cook until that raw flour taste cooks out.  Slowly add chicken broth stirring to break up any clumps.  Add spices, corn, black beans, and jalapenos.  bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer as long as you can, at least 20 minutes.
Stir in cheese.
I cooked the plantains according to the package directions and fried up some corn tortillas I cut into slices while waiting.
Serve with more cheese, if desired, sour cream, plantains and tortillas.
Serve over white rice.
