Taco Soup

Jennifer H


This is a hearty, warming weeknight dinner. Or make it on a Sunday and you have lunches for the week. It freezes well, so you might consider doubling your batch for future dinners. You can decide how zippy you want it by adding red pepper flakes or your favorite fresh peppers.
