Taco Soup

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 12 cups water
1 12 cups dry red wine (Burgandy, Merlot, etc.)

1 (15 1/2 ounce) can tomato sauce
2 (16 ounce) cans dark red kidney beans (drained)
1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix (I use Old El Paso with 40 % less sodium)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I like Kraft's Mexican style Cheddar jack with Jalepeno Peppers)
1 bag corn chips
sour cream (light is ok)
sliced black olives, drained
3 green onions, sliced fine
2 (4 ounce) cans green chilies, drained (hot, medium "or" mild according to your taste)
