The fall air is finally crisp and chilly, which means I’m making soup! Hearty and healthy taco soup, to be exact.
This Hearty and Healthy Taco Soup is Perfect for a Chilly Day
Imagine yourself cozying up with a big bowl of this soup. Maybe some cornbread on the side. Definitely tortilla chips mixed in there!
I thought taco soup appropriate since it is National Taco Day. This is my go-to recipe, and it was one of the first things I learned how to make when I was a newlywed. (Ages and ages ago.) Kids love it, husbands love it, and the ingredients are simple—you just dump everything in one large pot. Ready for it?
I make this taco soup with ground turkey. It’s more nutritious and healthy, but still hearty and full of flavor. I suggest using organic ground turkey. This is locally grown, antibiotic-free, and also raised on free-range organic land.
Now, let’s go make some soup! Grab this souper duper recipe for this healthy taco soup below. Enjoy!
