Happy Monday, friends! It’s Linley here and I am posted up at a coffee shop thinking about my all time favorite person. It is finally FALL, which is totally my season. You betcha that I am sitting in a sweater as I write this post! I am sipping a glass of wine while I think about my Auntie Louie. My Auntie Louie was an amazing human and also introduced me to her famous taco soup.

I hope my Auntie Louie is looking down on us right now, sipping on an old fashion in heaven, and salivating because this soup looks so good. My Auntie Louie was the strongest, sassiest, and the most loving person in the world. Louie made everybody feel like they were so incredibly loved and the only person in the room when she talked to you. She always had her nails done and made life one big party.

Auntie Louie was also damn good at making taco soup. It was something our family always asked her to make and my golly why wouldn’t we post a healthy taco soup recipe? One other fun fact before I chat about this taco soup. Did you know that Lee, Emily, and I ALL had a Louie in our lives?

We knew it was fate when we found each other. All of our Louies are no longer with us but were HUGE parts of why we are who are. So, shout out to all of the Louie’s of the world and to all the strong women that shape us.

Now…TACO SOUP.

This taco soup recipe has all of your favorite taco fixings in a bowl. It has all of the delicious taco flavors of cumin, chili powder, hot sauce, and cilantro that remind you that every taco must have!

As we started scheduling fall recipes, we knew that we wanted to really up our soup game and add healthy and nostalgic soups to the docket. We have a good mix of brothy soups like this taco soup as well as some delicious creamy soups that will keep your belly full all winter long. GET EXCITED.

How to Make Taco Soup 

One thing I love about this soup is that it is ready in 30-minutes but also has amazing flavor.

All you have to do is saute onion, garlic, and the taco meat, add taco spices and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the rest of your ingredients and let the soup simmer for 20 minutes. BAM, your soup is done and you’re ready to RUMBLE. Add your favorite taco fixings like greek yogurt, cilantro, fresh lime juice, some crunchy chips, and enjoy!
