OK, so we are two weeks away from summer and it's not what most would call soup weather, but I can eat a good bowl of soup any time of the year.
This soup, it's one of my all-time favorite soups.
If it looks familiar, it's because I shared it back in February over at "This Silly Girl's Life", where I'm a monthly contributor.
I've tweaked it a bit, so I'm sharing the tweaked version.
If you like tacos and nachos, you will love this soup. I always make a big pot, just so there are leftovers to eat throughout the week. It's a hearty, fill-you-up soup, loaded with protein. Not a vegetarian? add your choice of meat. Honestly, this is more than just a soup - it's a topper for killer nachos, burritos, enchiladas, so many possibilities.
Summer or Winter this soup is just plain good.
This may become your families favorite!
