Taco Soup Recipe – All you will need is about 30 minutes for this delicious and comforting one pot Taco Soup packed with taco meat, tomatoes, and beans! SO easy and great for weeknights!
Heeeey, friends!! Good news: ONE POT and 30 MINUTES to a happy tummy!! Bad news: I ate it all. WE! WE ate it all…
Have I shared with you that we eat soup before dinner almost always? Don’t freak out! This doesn’t mean I make soup every day. It means, I make that pot of soup on Sunday or Monday, and then we reheat small portions of it throughout the week. It’s a cultural thing, but also, it’s a sure fire way to make sure we don’t overdo it with the main course which almost always includes a few extra calories that we could have done without.
BUT, what happens when you want your main course to be A soup!?! You make TACO SOUP!
This soup recipe is for hungry people, like yours truly, who want HEALTHY and EASY and HOMEMADE food sitting on their table, every single night. Including, Fridays.
My Mama always taught me, “for the sake of convenience, and for the sake of homemade meals, PLEASE, always always alwaaaaays have on hand; lean ground meat, Hunt’s canned tomatoes, and beans!”. Clearly, I’m a good listener, because I include all three of those things in our Taco Soup.
Sidenote: Dear Hunt’s, I love you and thank you for not adding artificial ingredients, GMO products, lye*, or other unnecessary things to your dreamy tomatoes. XO
What you, my dear friends, might not know is that Hunt’s cans their diced, whole, and stewed tomatoes within hours after harvest. Prior to canning, though, Hunt’s peels their diced, whole, AND stewed tomatoes using a process called FlashSteam™ which uses steam from simple hot water. Just. water. There are companies that use *lye (a chemical) to peel their tomatoes, and Hunt’s just uses FlashSteam™! *Lye peeling is recognized as safe by the FDA and has no adverse effects on the healthfulness of tomatoes. But if you can just use water, why even bother with chemicals?! Word.
Favorite thing about simple recipes like this is that the higher the quality of the ingredients, such as our tomatoes, the fewer ingredients you will need. And this whole dinner was like a delicious taco combination, which is the best news ever, but because it was in the form of soup, it made life much more comfortable and cozier. It gave us all a feel-good bear hug at the end of a long, exhausting day full of cleaning, laundrying, schooling, homeworking, and dinnering. <<< real verbs.
