TACO SOUP

Is there anybody who doesn’t love tacos? I’m sure there are at least a handful of people. The thing is, though, there are so many different types of tacos that there is something for everyone. There is also this thing called TACO SOUP!!! AND, I have the recipe. A good recipe! Here it is!!! Enjoy, friends!

HELPFUL HINTS FOR TACO SOUP

Top this soup just as you would a taco.  Some great ideas for toppings are cheese, sour cream, avocado, cilantro, hot sauce, black olives, any kind of onion, tortilla strips, or crushed tortilla chips.  I really like the Tostitos Salsa Verde flavored chips crushed on top of this soup.

This is a one pot meal, but can also be made in an insta-pot, or slow cooker.

I know it looks like a TON of ingredients, but, truly, most of them are spices.
