30-Minute Taco Soup

I’m going to go ahead and say that a classic household favorite in most homes = tacos.

It’s just a fact, you guys!

Plus… topping options for everyone. You’ll satisfy even the pickiest eater, am I right?

Let’s keep gearing up to back-to-school for Healthy Food Friday with American Express.

A mug of taco soup + non-GMO tortilla chips and your child’s favorite toppings = the perfect lunch box meal.

    This was so easy and so good! I switched it up and used 1/2 lb of ground turkey + can of black beans to stretch it and replaced stewed tomatoes with fire-roasted tomatoes (plus a little water). Will definitely make again!
