Taco Soup

Taco Soup

If you like chili you will love this soup! It tastes very similar to chili, but it’s more of a loaded chili. It is so hearty and filling and thanks to all the beef and beans, it’s loaded with protein.

I know I’ve been posting soup recipes like crazy, but trust me there are plenty more to come :). Like I’ve said before, you can never have too many soup recipes. I love to switch things up vs. having the same thing week after week. Yes, we all get comfortable with the recipes we know and love but how much more exciting is it to serve up something new? My family doesn’t get a lot of the same thing around here since there is so much recipe testing going on, but we’re not complaining. I love trying new recipes. Don’t worry about this one though, it’s not at all one that’s anything extravagant or unusual. The flavors will all be very familiar to you.
