Taco Soup

Taco Soup

This time of year I just love eating soup.  I don’t want the same old flavors every time, so I decided to mix it up.  My mom used to make soup really similar to my Taco Soup (although we always had beans in it – but my husband hates beans…so…;))  Go ahead and add some beans if you like them!

To further suit your tastes you could add more heat to this recipe by adding more pepper or using tomatoes with peppers in them.  I love soup because it’s so easy to make it a flavor that you will love.

This soup makes a ton – so it would be perfectly fine to cut it in half – but I love left overs (soup is always better the next day!)  You could also make it – divide in half (BEFORE adding the noodles) and freeze one half of it.  But I do highly recommend not freezing the noodles.  Then you have made 2 meals in the same time!  Make some French Bread to go with it or some cheesy beer bread (YUM)!
