Healthy and Easy Taco Soup

This soups makes for the perfect weeknight fall or winter meal. It’s full of flavor in done in less than 40 minutes, just brown the meat, dump the ingredients and let is simmer.

There are even vegan substitutes listed if meat isn’t your thing!

This soup makes a balanced meal with protein, fat, and fiber rich carbs. It’s hearty enough on its own, but would be great with tortilla chips, cornbread, or rice if you like more starches with your meals.

Pro tip: I love using bone broth instead of regular broth for the added protein and lower sodium content. You can use it in any soups, to cook rice/quinoa, or really any recipe that calls for broth!
