This delicious soup is made with a variety of vegetables: tomatoes, beans, sweet corn, and a warm taco seasoning. Perfect for a cold night, and packed with flavor! This version is vegetarian, but you could always add ground beef or shredded chicken for some extra protein. This was a huge hit with our kiddos!
We opted to add corn chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro and guacamole with ours. The combinations are endless. Enjoy!
