Taco Soup

Taco Soup

Happy Monday!  Is there such a thing as a happy Monday, I say absolutely, it’s all in the attitude – right?  How are you all holding up during the most dreadful month of the year?  I am hanging in there, and dare I say, it’s actually going fast.  It’s almost already half way over…Now wishing time to speed up (even during the month of January) is not something I am comfortable with, time already goes by WAY too fast…so maybe I am learning to enjoy the winter months – doubtful, but once again, it’s all in the attitude :).

Anyways, to go along with the weather, I have another warm comfort food to share with you.  This is a recipe I have been making for years, and I honestly don’t know where I got it…but chances are, you probably have one very similar (if not the same) as this one.  Taco Soup is one of those extremely common recipes, that everyone has as a “go-to” recipe for a simple, tasty, and relatively healthy dinner.

Truth be told, Taco Soup is not my favorite.  I enjoy a bowl every once in awhile…but my husband LOVES it!  In fact, I make a big pot of it once a week, so he has it for lunch almost daily, and this has been going on for a few years (I promise it’s a true story).  

Notes:  I like to use my Homemade Taco Seasoning in this recipe, but a packet of store bought seasoning would work in a pinch if needed.
