There’s just something about soup on a cool fall day. It’s good for the soul! I love all kinds of soup, but today I want to share one of my favorites with you. I call it “One Pot Taco Soup” because, well, you can make it all in one pot! Less dirty dishes? Win!
Do you have a list of seasonal recipes? Those recipes you only pull out at certain times? I’ve found that I (kind of by accident) have a go-to list for spring and summer and a different list for fall and winter. It’s kind of nice because it gives you something to look forward to when a new season starts.
This recipe is in my fall/winter line-up and it’s so easy! You just brown the ground beef, drain, and then dump in the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer until you’re ready! I scoop some out for both of my boys before adding the beans because neither one of them like beans. It makes me laugh because my daughter is usually the picky eater, but she loves the beans. Go figure!
Taco soup is great by itself or with loads of toppings! You can top it with sour cream, avocado, tortilla strips, and of course CHEESE!
You can use a packet of taco seasoning, but I prefer to make it from scratch so I can control what goes in it. I like this recipe here.
The serving size is for 4-6 people, but you can make it stretch by adding more beans!
So on to the recipe!
