4 Can Taco Soup

tacosoup1

This soup recipe was shared with me by a girl I went to college with and it doesn’t disappoint!  This is a fast homemade soup that does not require much time or work.  It tastes great, freezes well, and is filled with protein and fiber!  I love making this soup during the cold months!  I usually am not one to eat soups because I am very much a texture person but this soup is chunky and when you top it with tortilla chips it adds a great layer of crunch.  Try it out, you will not be disappointed!  🙂
