Quick & Easy Taco Soup

I’m a big fan of enjoying soup as a main course, but not just any soup will do. It has to be something substantial and satisfying like this hearty and flavorful taco soup! A happy tummy is just one pot and half an hour away.

This recipe is a true family favorite at our house – I must admit, we’ve had arguments over who gets the leftovers. Luckily, there are plenty of servings to go around. I recommend portioning the soup equally for everyone at the table to keep the peace. ✌️ But I wouldn’t blame you for sneaking an extra bowl!
