CHEESY TACO SOUP

This 30 minute, ONE POT Cheesy Taco Soup recipe is the ultimate comforting soup packed with all your favorite taco flavors and is SO easy and great for crowds!  Say hello to a new family favorite!


As I spooned the frito topped soup into my mouth I was enthralled at the idea of eating taco soup!  Since then, Taco Soup has continued to be a favorite of mine (and probably the rest of the world), but my Cheesy Taco Soup version is my ultimate favorite.

And what an easy, dinner it is.  It is also a wonderful make ahead meal that you can refrigerate and reheat or keep on the stovetop on low or even add to your slow cooker on the warm setting.  You can double or triple it for crowds and it will still only take you 30 minutes!
