Warm and comforting, Spicy Taco Soup is sure to hit the spot for a simple dinner!
Hosting a crowd for lunch or dinner is easy if you plan on making a pot or two of soup, some bread, a salad and a simple dessert. I personally love make ahead meals like this one, which happens to be ridiculously easy, and is possibly even more delicious the second day. All you need to do is brown the beef and open a few cans…a recipe that can definitely be called super easy.
I love moderately spicy food, so making this with a bit of a kick was required. I used one regular and one hot packet of taco seasoning which was just right on the spiciness scale for our crowd. Make this on a quiet morning and you’ll be so ready to dig in by the time dinner rolls around. If you don’t happen to be feeding a crowd, then you’ll have lunch ready for the next day 🙂
