When the weather gets a little cool, this healthy taco soup becomes a weekly recipe. It’s made with whatever ground meat you prefer (I used extra lean ground turkey in the pictures) and you could totally go meatless too. I usually go with ground turkey, chicken or bison. My hubby loves bison! In addition, we’ve got all of the normal taco soup contenders – onion, corn, fire roasted tomatoes, green chilis and beans. It cooks up thick, hearty, and is a total crowd pleaser. Even my picky kiddos go crazy for this recipe. Don’t skip the toppings. They seal the deal!

CAN TACO SOUP BE FROZEN?

This taco soup freezes well, for up to about 6 months. You’ll want to let the soup completely cool first. You can then scoop it into freezer safe zip lock bags or containers and freeze. When ready to eat, let frozen container thaw completely in the fridge or defrost in the microwave. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave until completely warm.
