Taco Soup

Taco Soup

Since taco night is so popular it makes sense to have a twist on the favorite theme and turn it into a soup once in a while and just like our tacos we suggest you serve this soup DIY. Lay out all the toppings and let everyone make it their own.

You can make this meat or dairy, with or without the meat and add extra beans or veggies and garnish with cheese if there is no meat.

Instead of cabbage in the soup you can serve this Coconut Slaw on the side.

The leftovers will thicken so you can serve in a tortilla just like tacos.
