Dump & Run Taco Soup

For years, this easy taco soup recipe has been a staple in our home.

In fact, it’s quite possibly the most requested recipe by our kids, and the fact that it takes less than 10 minutes to throw together makes me “Mother of the Year” quite often.

They don’t need to know just how simple it is to grant them their favorite meal requests, and I don’t plan on announcing it anytime soon. What’s wonderful about this meal is that it gets better with time. The seasonings deepen as they mix, so making extra to serve later is something that’s a given.

They always remind me though, “Make sure you make lots, Mom. It will be even better tomorrow.”

It’s one of my three top choices when entertaining large groups, along with my Mom’s Homemade Lasagna. Everyone loves Taco Soup (and it’s very easy to make it vegetarian for special guests),  plus it freezes perfectly, so it meets just about everyone of my criteria.
