Taco Soup

 

This recipe is actually my husbands! Matthew introduced me to taco soup very quickly once we started dating. Talk about a tasty Fall meal! Very similar to chili for sure, but still a taste all it's own. We usually make it meatless, but you could add a pound of ground beef or turkey if your taste buds are asking for it.

We used to buy a packet of taco seasoning mix, but this time, I made my own! I got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Isn't she the greatest?! Follow her Instagram account. I love it because she is always going on walks and talking to the cows which is what I do. 

Yes, those are off-brand Fritos! They cost less than $1 at Aldi and taste just the same under all that taco soup goodness!

You definitely want to give your beans a good rinse!

This recipe is dairy free unless you want to add a big dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of cheese to your bowl! We typically dab some hot sauce on top of ours. You can use whatever toppings you prefer to personalize it or eat it plain!
