20 Minute Taco Soup

Do you like super fast, hearty and delicious dinners, that actually please and nourish your family?  Of course you do; I do too!
Soups are most often one of those types of lunches and dinners.

I’ve shared my family’s favorite Chicken, Black Bean & Salsa Soup many times on my Monday’s menu plans, and it’s still one of our favorites which I use a lot when I have company, and it always gets rave reviews.

However, this Taco Soup has now joined it for top billing!  It’s scrumptious and rich, and everyone in the family can customize it with toppings of their choice.  Plus, it’s full of protein, has vitamins A & C, and iron and calcium.  Sounds good, right!?

Taco Soup, 20 Minute Taco Soup,

Now, I’m calling this 20 Minute Taco Soup, because I cook my ground beef ahead of time, package it in meal size portions in the freezer, so it’s ready to go on weeknights.  Then I can throw this soup together super fast.

If you have to cook up your ground beef while you’re putting this soup together, it may take you a few minutes more.  To save time though, you could have your beef cooking in a skillet, while you’re loading your soup pot with the other ingredients.
