This Taco Soup has made the rounds to several people and by  their response they must have enjoyed it as they asked for the recipe. I hope  you will enjoy it too.

If you didn’t know, you would think you were eating Chili.  It has a few more ingredients and is a hearty soup that will warm you this fall and winter.  It is also very easy to make.
