10-Minute Taco Soup
The other night, I was epic-ly hungry and craving a homemade meal. It had been 8 hours since lunch. All I could think about was eating.
I did a frantic grocery stop at Trader Joe’s and picked up ingredients for a simple taco soup. I bolted out of the door and sped home.
I couldn’t get dinner on the table fast enough.
The best thing about this recipe is that by the time I got home and unloaded the groceries, it was only another 10 minutes or so before I was eating the soup. TEN minutes! Did you hear that? It only took me 10 minutes to make a delicious pot of homemade soup.
