This is a great soup to make when you are short on time! Everyone loves it too! There is so much flavor and super satisfying! If you prefer chicken, this soup is delicious with chicken as well. Or this soup can be made meatless too.......just omit the meat and add more beans. Everyone needs a good taco soup "go-to" and this is our favorite one for sure!
