Taco Soup Is Easy

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.

You should definitely try this taco soup tonight, you won’t regret it!

  • Beth in Connecticut: I really want to try this recipe, like with chili I have stomach distress after eating beans. I hoped to start eating them now and eat less meat. Do you know if the type of bean matters? In the past I thought refried beans were easier, but I just had an enchilada casserole with refried beans and my stomach revolted. I guess I should stock up on “beano”. I see people use different types of beans and wondered if any type if beans are easier to digest than others. (Black vs red vs pinto). No worries if you don’t have an answer. I just wanted to put that out there I never know which to buy at the store, but I see others have not used black beans before. March 11, 2018 at 6:58am Reply
