Fast & Easy Taco Soup

Taco Soup 3 Dish Up Delish

My husband and I, and our boys of course, recently moved to Idaho so he could start a Chiropractic Practice. We left our home in St. Louis, Missouri, drove for over 26 hours solid (split into three days), and finally made it to Idaho. Before we left, about a million people told me to prepare for the cold since I was moving out of the Midwest. Today, however, I shouldn’t be the one worried about the cold! We’re at a balmy mid 30’s while my friends in St. Louis freeze in -10 degrees! I’m definitely not envious, though I do wish it would snow, and I certainly miss my friends.


So today, for all of you feeling like a popsicle, I decided to share my Fast & Easy Taco Soup. When I say fast and easy, I really mean it. And chances are that you have everything on hand already. Other than cooking the hamburger, it literally takes 5 minutes to open cans and dump ingredients into a pot. Then you let everything simmer for about 15-20 minutes, and ta-da! Taco Soup. With spectacular flavor, might I add.


Taco Soup 2 Dish Up Delish


This soup ends up being relatively thick, like a chili, but with the flavors of a taco. One night I thought to add a small can of diced green chilies, and it seriously ramped up the flavor even more! If you need less spice for the kiddos, just use a mild taco seasoning packet and leave the green chilies out.


Hopefully everyone who is affected by this “polar vortex of arctic air” can manage to stay warm this week!
