Easy and Delicious Taco Soup


It’s Fall, Ya’ll!

Bring on the soup, chili, meatloaf…you know, comfort food. This time of year I seriously just crave foods like this taco soup because it is warm, delicious and filling. Best of all, it is made with only healthy, real food ingredients. This is literally the easiest soup you will ever make and I promise your whole family will love it. Just chop up some veggies, brown the ground beef, throw it all into the slow cooker with some spices and the heat of that magic cooking machine does the rest of the work for you.

Make real food work for you.

Most of my recipes are super flexible to accommodate what you have available in your kitchen. In this recipe, for example, you can use any type of salsa you have on hand and you can even use ground chicken or turkey in place of ground beef. There are lots of fun toppings, too, like olives, avocado, green onions, plantain chips or tortilla chips. The only way to truly be successful with a real food lifestyle is to make it work for YOU so use recipes as a guide to use up foods you already have in your home. That is one of my top real food rules! I think it is also important to keep real food affordable. Sure, it’d be awesome to go to the grocery store and purchase only organic produce and grass-fed meat, but that isn’t always practical. Buying canned veggies, like the tomatoes and diced green chiles used in this taco soup, is a great way to keep a bit of money in your pocket. They are canned at peak ripeness so they still provide a ton of nutrition. Well, now I’m giving you all of my real food secrets. 😉
