Taco Soup

Meet the 30 minute 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, but not paleo due to the beans. Sometimes we will stir in frozen corn into the kids bowls to help cool it down and add another flavor, but I don’t love corn due to it’s lack of micronutrients, so I left that out of the recipe. A family favorite!
