Taco Soup Tuesday's
Taco Tuesdays are great, but Taco Soup Tuesdays are way better, and there are usually leftovers. I make this soup a lot during the winter because it's easy and my family loves it. The great thing about this recipe is you can cook it in a crockpot, or if you're in a hurry and need a quick meal in 20-30 minutes, you can easily make it on the stovetop. The other great thing is you can use ground beef, chicken, pork, or even turkey.
How To Freeze Taco Soup
- Let the soup cool down.
- Place soup into a freezer bag or freezer container (leave some room for it to expand).
- Put in the freezer. It will stay good for up to six months.
- When you're ready to reheat the soup, place in the refrigerator or microwave to thaw. Then simmer in a pot over low heat.
