Taco Soup

This is a quick and easy soup you can easily put together and serve in no time at all. It relies on a few common pantry items, or some you put up yourself over the summer, and it's perfect for those cold fall or winter days.

What do you need to make Taco Soup?

  • Ground Beef
  • Beef Bone Broth or Stock
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Salsa
  • Corn Kernels (fresh, canned or frozen)
