This is an easy, delicious one-pot meal that's great for a cold winter day or a potluck! This can also be made in a Crock Pot and brought to the office.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This soup has a different taste than the other taco soup recipes we've tried over the years. We think it is the cilantro - added in just the right amount - that makes it extra special. Hominy as an ingredient is also a nice touch. A super simple and satisfying soup recipe.
