Taco Soup

Meet the 30-minute one-pot dinner solution that my kids love! It’s nice those meals that your kids look forward to and this hearty, almost chili-like soup is one of them. It’s gluten-free and dairy-free, and leave out the beans to make it Whole30, Paleo and Keto. My kids have not even *noticed* this one has cauliflower rice in it – blends right into the texture and flavor #momwin. Works great both on the stove or in an instant pot. A family favorite, we usually double it and enjoy the leftovers or freeze it (it freezes great too)!

    Autumn… I seriously love every recipe I’ve tried! The most recent one being Taco Soup. I made it for the first time on Friday… we loved it so much, I made it again on Sunday!

    • Aw Carol, you always have been such a wonderful and sweet supporter of my journey! You have been there since those first Whole30 potlucks! Thanks mama!

    • Finally made this taco soup! Just delicious. I see lots of potential, including feeding friends. I can tell it’s going to become more tasty tomorrow. Thank you. Straight-forward, delicious and nutritious.

    I’m currently doing a Whole30 and came across this recipe on your Instagram. It was literally so easy and my husband, who’s doing this Whole30 with me too, loved it as well. I wasn’t paying attention when I bought the diced tomatoes, they had olive oil and garlic in them. It gave the soup more of a spaghetti sauce taste, but we didn’t mind 🙂 This recipe is so versatile, you can use a variety of toppings/additions and it will definitely be on our food prep rotation, Whole30 or not!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

    • I’m so happy this was an easy win, especially on a Whole30! I’m rooting for you and your husband!
