Easy Taco Soup

Here is a super simple recipe that makes a lot of food, meaning you won’t have to worry about lunch or supper for several meals.  In addition, it is very healthy and delicious. You can finish it off with corn chips or shredded cheese, but there’s lot of opportunity to get creative here. For extra zing, top it with fresh cilantro,  sour cream, or greek yogurt. Yum!
