Soup season is here! I’m always looking of new quick soup recipes for those nights that we are running kids around, what about you? A quick soup is great to make and leave warming…especially when you have people eating at different times.

My family loves this taco soup because it tastes amazing and I love it because of the simplicity.  It’s packed with a ton of flavor and covers most of the food groups.  So you can have it as a stand alone meal or add other things too it.
